Tattooing a pony with the famous Rolling Stones tongue logo would break animal protection laws, a Münster court said on Wednesday.
The court in the northwestern German city ruled against the white pony’s owner, who wanted to tattoo the animal’s right hind thigh to make it “more uniquely beautiful.”
He had already shaved a large portion of hair from the animal and pre-tattooed the outline of the tongue, 15 square centimetres (six square inches) in area.

I guess they’re not talking about the identification tattoos on the inside of racehorses’ lips, but I’m also thankful that this pony was spared a tattoo that might have looked downright silly in his old age. Did the owner got the idea from those pierced “goth kittens“? Anyway, why bother with a tattoo when you could have a new “uniquely beautiful” look for your pony every couple of months, starting with this star-spangled effort? Or this beachside scene? The delightfully named Stencil Bum can help.
