English term or phrase: Pony and table
What is the Bahasa Indonesian word for pony? I find kuda for horse and I know of the Bali ponies, but I can't seem to find a specific word for pony in Indonesian. I saw "poni" once..

Also, what is the Bahasa Indonesian word for table and desk?
I'm a bit confused about "meja".
thank you

Explanation:
Pony sometimes means "kuda kecil", "anak kuda", or even "kuda kerdil" depending on what you'd like to refer to in the context.

Table means "meja" like in dinner table "meja makan" or kitchen table "meja dapur". However, desk definitely means "mejatulis" as it refers to a desk in an office.

Hopefully this helps a little.
