Darry is responsible for Pony. Since their parents death, he's had to take the place of both parents, thus, he looks out for him in a completely different way. He doesn't want his brothers to be taken away and placed with other families, which is a definite possibility in their circumstances. Does he have a right to being over protective and placing high expectations..... yes, he does.
