  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Idioms 241. The idiom today is pony up. All right.

  • Let's take a look at the note here. If someone ponies up money , he usually

  • reluctantly... you know reluctantly means unwillingly. He reluctantly pays what he

  • owes, especially a debt. Okay. Let's continue. The origin of this phrase is

  • not related to horses. Every time somebody hears pony they think of like a

  • baby horse or a young horse. In this case, it doesn't really have anything to do

  • with horses. It comes from the Latin term pone and the verb in Spanish poner

  • means to put. So pony up actually means put up or put up the money or put up

  • meaning like provide. So that's really where it comes from. All right. So let's

  • look at several examples here. Example number, one you borrowed that money one

  • month ago. When are you going to pony up and pay it back ? Yeah. That's typical of

  • one way that you might hear it. Or number two. If you don't pony up the money that

  • loan shark is going to break your legs. Well, if somebody you know, was desperate

  • and they borrowed money from a loan shark, and you know, if the time is due.

  • You don't pay it, you'd better be careful. So we say you better pony up the money

  • for him or otherwise there;s going to be trouble. All right. Or number three. The

  • landlord said if you don't pony up the money for the last three months

  • by Friday, she is going to start an eviction process. You know, maybe start to

  • get you out. Maybe the ... the landlord's patience is running out. She's

  • going to start an eviction process. She wants, so she wants you to pony up the money or

  • else. Okay good . I hope you got it. I hope it's clear. Thank you for your time.

  • Bye-bye.
