pony is not furry. it takes action and accepting of the name to join a fandom. furries try to colonize anything slightly anthropomorphized by claiming it's inherently furry, regardless of context or actual history/desires of the group. with ponies it's worse, because they're not satisfied with calling ponies furry; they have to recreate pony in their image. this is how we get >no hooves.
There's two meanings now to the term anthro. One is the word "anthropomorphized", which at it's core means anything that isn't a human, but which does intelligent things. Then there's "anthro" as used around these discussions, which means a character which was changed from it's normal form into a human-ish body as well. This is what furries can't help doing, butchering the perfect pony form into an abomination that has very little left of the pleasing design of pure pony. If pony was a subset of furry, then why would they need to draw all this anthro, semi-anthro, and humanized?
the argument seems to be that ponies are furries because furry is literally anything anthropomorphized. this is absurd; there are people who create anthropomorphized characters who are not part of the furry fandom or culture. there are major studios who release anthropomorphized cartoons or movies. those shows are not inherently furry, and neither are the majority of viewers. there is a subset of viewers who are furry and who change the content of the show to their furry image.
for example, Ice Age is not furry at all, despite being anthropomorphized characters. there are, however, furry artists who draw r34 of it. that doesn't make the movie or the rest of its fans into furries. Cars isn't furry. The good dinosaur isn't furry.
to be an furry you'd have to claim to be one and/or interact with other furries, participating in furry content. pony content is pony content. anthro might be defined as inherently furry, but again, you can't force someone to be in a fandom.
