It's an archaic expression and possibly has a northern bias ...

Quote
Most of the well-known manufacturers produced pony or horse drawn mowers but probably the best known was Alexander Shanks and Co of Arbroath, Scotland. This company had produced the first horse drawn mowers in the mid-19th century and they were immediately popular, especially on the growing number of golf courses and other sports grounds that were being built at the time. Some people believe that this is the origin of the term "Shanks's Pony",

Then how is it that here in the States it is also a well known expression?



A lot of Jocks emigrating to the states in the 19th century.

Haggis is a Scottish dish which looks the same before and after its transit through the digestive tract.
