Last week, in our weekly diversion from heavier topics, we tried to “blame the dog” for a bad shipment of garlic. Today, we blame the ponies for taking food out of children’s mouths.

The “three pony rule” is a child support jurisprudential rule that, no matter how wealthy the parents, when it comes to calculating child support, no child is entitled to be provided with three ponies.
