Fuuuuuuuuuun!

1. How long have you been collecting ponies? 
I've played with them since I was 4 years old, in 1985. When I became too 'old' for them, I stored my childhood collection away, but never got rid of them. I discovered the joys of ebay in 2004, and with that came the actual collecting.

2. How did you start collecting ponies? See above

3. How long have you been part of the MLP Internet community (not necessarily just the Arena)? 2006

4. Who was your first pony? I've always thought TE Galaxy together with NBBE Ribbon, but I've discovered an old slide at home showing me with Baby Glory before I had the other two. So Baby Glory it was. She's the only pony from my childhood herd who seems to have gone missing, I can't even remember having her.

5. Who was your last pony (i.e., most recently purchased/acquired)? I remember that very well. My 13th birthday, and my best friend gave me Nesthaeckchen Baby Wuerfelchen. We were watching Beverly Hills 90210 at that time, and I felt a little awkward getting a pony. This led to her being in pristine condition even now, complete with all her lovely accessories.

6. What is your favorite generation? G1 of course, but I also collect G3, a few G2 babies, and G4 (focus on prototypes and FS)

7. About how many ponies do you have in your collection? somewhere between 700-800, I haven't counted in ages

8. Who's your grail pony, or alternatively, the pony you want most at the moment? Blue Posey (unattainable grail), any Spanish TAF, MIB Sticky and Sniffles

9. Who's your favorite pony and why? (choose only one! hard, I know) Surprise, my best friend had her when we grew up, and I always adored her and the little one. They were the first I bought on ebay, and I'm having an army of maybe 20 now, plus MIB and MOC.

Okay. Let's see if I can answer all those with my Swiss cheese brain...
1. About four years officially.

2. I started around 2004 with a little starswirl. I was a little girl at the time, and as time passed, I grew older and put ponies behind me. Then I was looking through the build a bear workshop catalog in summer 2013 and I saw a princess twilight sparkle. From what I remembered from the odd time I saw merchandise for the show, the purple one wasn't a princess with wings. So I investigated. And faster than you can say "super-cider-squeezy-6000!" I was hooked.

3. Well, about as long as I've been officially collecting. So yeah, four years.

4. My first pony? A G3 starswirl. She had a little raincoat and everything. It's in a bin somewhere in the basement. But she herself is in my room. Standing tall and proud!

5. Last pony? That would be a g1 moondancer. She was my grail girl. And now I have my grail girl!

6. Favorite gen? Gosh, I can't pick one. I'd say g1 because it's the original, G3 because I grew up with that stuff (looking back I despise the cartoons with a passion only a tenth grade animation student could have) and G4, as I've made so many friends and learnt so many important things that help me out in daily life. It's made me more confident and proud of who I am. And g2 is my least favorite. Probably because it was just never here. Never had it. I am jealous of you who did however.
 
7. Pony population? Approximately 25. I never took the time to count!

8. Current grail? Toughie...after getting moondancer I've had to rethink the whole grail thing. I'd have to say it's a g1 mint/near mint posey. All the poseys here have white hair and other problems like markers and stains. Looks a bit like my grandma after she let five year old me do her makeup!

9. Fave pony?  I had to think about this, but g1 peachy takes the cake. She's a generic pony. And that means almost nothing to base a personality on, leaving it up to my sister and I to decide who she is when we are playing ponies together. One day she's the bratty pony who complains, the next she's some sort of dragon-pony war hero.
This. Sentence. Is. False! Dontthinkaboutitdontthinkaboutit.

1. How long have you been collecting ponies?
Well I started collecting as a preschooler back in the late 80s. I sold off my entire herd by age 11 or 12. Then I started acquiring petite ponies in 2009. Then I started getting G3s in 2014 & rebuying G1s in 2016.

2. How did you start collecting ponies?
I loved MLP as a kid. As an adult I found myself drawn back to MLP when I saw all the lovely G3s in stores.

3. How long have you been part of the MLP Internet community (not necessarily just the Arena)?
Since 8 years ago. Although I did take a break between 2009 & 2014

4. Who was your first pony?
I can't recall. I know it was either Lofty, Peachy, Majesty, or Baby Cotton Candy

When I got back into collecting as an adult my first pony was G3 Sno Glo.

5. Who was your last pony (i.e., most recently purchased/acquired)?
I think it was Salty.

6. What is your favorite generation?
G1, followed closely by G3.

7. About how many ponies do you have in your collection?
~70

8. Who's your grail pony, or alternatively, the pony you want most at the moment?
Thundercloud

9. Who's your favorite pony and why? (choose only one! hard, I know)
I can't pick just one, but I'll say Mirror Mirror. She was one of my childhood ponies and one of the first ones I sought out when I began collecting as an adult.

1. How long have you been collecting ponies?
Wow, I can't even remember. Grew up with the G1s then I lost interest. In my early teens I opened up my eyes for these lovely little ponies again and that was in the beginning of the G2 era so maybe I've been around since 1997? *feels old*

2. How did you start collecting ponies?
I always loved ponies as a kid! In my teens I manage so salvage parts of my childhood collection by saving them from the abusive care of my siblings.
At the toystores the G2 had just been launched (did manage to snag up a set of the Surprise Newborns at retail values but sadly as a new collector I didn't understand the future value so they where de-MOCed) and I realized how much I had been missing my old G1 ponies so I started to search for information about them online and suddenly I was hooked.
 
3. How long have you been part of the MLP Internet community (not necessarily just the Arena)?
Back in the days there was only one larger forum; The MLPTP. When a second larger forum, MLPArena opened in 2003 it was a pretty big deal :D

4. Who was your first pony?
Surprise & Sparkler. My first baby was baby Lemondrop <3

5. Who was your last pony (i.e., most recently purchased/acquired)?
Wow, I haven't bough a pony in ages! Since I already have most of my most wanted I decided I need to sell of a couple before buying more ponies but I did buy Mimic and the green alt. Lily of the Valley birthflower pony a couple of years back.

6. What is your favorite generation?
Generation 1!

7. About how many ponies do you have in your collection?
Maybe 300? I think I need to count someday.

8. Who's your grail pony, or alternatively, the pony you want most at the moment?
Hmm, though question. I'm always on the lookout for mint upgrades. I'd love the have more argentina Alitas! <3

9. Who's your favorite pony and why? (choose only one! hard, I know)
Always pending. Today: TAF Sugarberry! Cute pose, Lovely colors and the most adorable strawberry symbols all over! <3

1. How long have you been collecting ponies?
Technically, I don't. Not yet. I have ponies from childhood, and a few from when my roommate and I customised them in college, but that's about it. I haven't started actively seeking any out, just looking for info on the ones I have thus far. I may start buying old ponies I wanted as a kid, but I'm not sure about that yet because I have a lot of hobbies as it is.

2. How did you start collecting ponies?

3. How long have you been part of the MLP Internet community (not necessarily just the Arena)?

I found out about the Arena years ago when I did custom ponies with my roommate, but I only made an account in 2015. I haven't exactly been a part of the community until recently, however. Certain aspects of the community kind of turned me away at the time, but things change, and I've come back to find it wasn't so scary after all!

4. Who was your first pony?
I ... actually have no idea. I think Baby Sparkle Gusty.

5. Who was your last pony (i.e., most recently purchased/acquired)?
Ah. Pinkie Pie and her suitcase. My niece was briefly into ponies, so we bought a handful to have around the house as "surprise" toys for when she and her brother would come over. Unfortunately, she grew out of Barbie and the Ponies really, really fast, so by the time I was going to give it to her, she was over it. I kept it myself and it's just been sitting in my sewing room ever since. I'm not super fond of the G4 models, but her hedgehog is cute.

6. What is your favorite generation?
G1's later years, though I really enjoy some of the poses from G3.

7. About how many ponies do you have in your collection?
I'm really not sure. Maybe half a dozen G1 and about a dozen G3s?

8. Who's your grail pony, or alternatively, the pony you want most at the moment?
I don't really have one at the moment, though I'd really like to move my collection from storage in the US to here in Australia with me, so I could properly assess it. ^^;

9. Who's your favorite pony and why? (choose only one! hard, I know)
Baby Sparkle Gusty. She's just adorable and spritely, and who doesn't love glitter? Plus, she's a unicorn, and I adored unicorns as a kid, and still do today.

1. How long have you been collecting ponies?
I started really collecting them since G2 came in 1996 or 1997 don't fully remember.

2. How did you start collecting ponies?
My father bought them for me. He really supported my Pony addiction from a very young age.

3. How long have you been part of the MLP Internet community (not necessarily just the Arena)?
A year, maybe slightly longer.

4. Who was your first pony?
Big Brother Salty G1

5. Who was your last pony (i.e., most recently purchased/acquired)?
A lot of 10 G1 Ponies incluiding:Fizzy, Confetti shy pose, Whizzer, Twisty Tails US version, Itian Moondancer, Princess Serena, Painting Time, Masquarade, TE Galaxy and a baby Pony who's name I don't know.

6. What is your favorite generation?
G2 has a special place in my heart. I only collect them MiB to recreate the feeling I had as a child when I looked at Ponies in the store or got one as a present from my dad.

7. About how many ponies do you have in your collection?
G1 = around 216 which only 2 of them are from my childhood, had more childhood Ponies but I sold them for upgrades.
G2 = 13 from my childhood and 10 MiB which I bought later on Ebay.

8. Who's your grail pony, or alternatively, the pony you want most at the moment?
This is a hard one as there are some Ponies that I really would enjoy having. Rapunzel is an obvious one, but I would really enjoy having a MiB or mint condition Skippity Doo + stand.

9. Who's your favorite pony and why? (choose only one! hard, I know)
G2 Berry Bright. I was already in love with her as a child. I love the meadow/berry picking feeling. Carrying her two little baskets filled with berries. I love her sparkly green eyes and her orange body as green and orange are both my favorite colors and I love blonde hair on Ponies.Oh and I just love ribbons in hair! She just has it all! So much love!!!

1. How long have you been collecting ponies?
    I started collecting in 1995-96, my first year of college. 

2. How did you start collecting ponies?
     Driving home one weekend from college, I stopped at a flea-antique market.  I found a baby Yo-Yo, and it brought up memories of my childhood ponies that I was forced to get rid of.  So I started searching out and finding all the ponies I could.

3. How long have you been part of the MLP Internet community (not necessarily just the Arena)? 
    MlpArena 2004.  I took a break for several years when I was broke and had no internet.

4. Who was your first pony?
    Rainbow Windy

5. Who was your last pony (i.e., most recently purchased/acquired)?
    Mountain Boy Fireball

6. What is your favorite generation?
     G1

7. About how many ponies do you have in your collection?
    A lot!  I don't collect sweet heart sister type ponies, so I have none of those.  No second run princess ponies with weird tinsel forelocks.  I don't collect those weird teeny babies that came after newborns.  Other than those I am almost complete on U.S. ponies except for several Baby sea ponies, a couple more birthflower, Red Roses, a windy wing, and some harder to find mail orders.  Then I have a few international ponies.

8. Who's your grail pony, or alternatively, the pony you want most at the moment?
    Would love Sweet Scoops one day.

9. Who's your favorite pony and why? (choose only one! hard, I know)
     Paradise.  I love drawing her and love her colors.

since I was really little . In case you're new and you're wondering  that would be about 1983/4 and I saw my first G1. My next door neighbour bought her daughter Bowtie and I was allowed to borrow her for a night. I didn't want to give her back :P

2. How did you start collecting ponies?

I've had ponies alllllmost as long as Hasbro has been making them XD  . How did I start?.. oopsy I already answered that one . After I *had* to give Bowtie back  , my mom (also fell in love with ponies) bought me my own ponies i :happy:
 I was a secret collector when I was in my teens, and I didn't like G2 for years so didn't get any of those until about 2009 ish?...   As an Adult?..  I had only a few ponies on display  but in 2008 my hubby found out I had literally hundreds hidden away from when I was a kid and encouraged me to display the lot as well as get  ones I'd always wanted....
they multiplied even faster after hubby was on board with it  :squee:   :blush:

3. How long have you been part of the MLP Internet community (not necessarily just the Arena)?



Hmm well.. I joined the Arena in Jan 2009 but I was lurking waaay before that. I guess I wasn't brave enough to join in until then . --->  :facepalm:   



4. Who was your first pony?


G1 Bluebelle , the UK version with the heart case that had hair clips in it . I still have her of course. Also Butterscotch with the Gymkhana set . Mom bought me both sets :heart:

5. Who was your last pony (i.e., most recently purchased/acquired)?



G4.5 Family Moments set with Princess Cadence, Shining Armor and baby Flurry heart. 

6. What is your favorite generation?

G1 always :hearts: cant beat the original (although I prefer the G4 cartoons)


7. About how many ponies do you have in your collection?


hahahahaha I should sooo so not admit the extent of my pony addiction in actual numbers  :silly:  :good:   I refused to keep count after  early 2010 when my collection was already over 1000 :bateyes:  :angel: .  Somewhere around 2000 I think TBH

8. Who's your grail pony, or alternatively, the pony you want most at the moment?

that's a toughie! :faint:  :drunk: :wonder:  .....   if I was hunting MIB then BnG Ringlets in French, German or Spanish packaging, same with MIB Chief - need the Euro language versions.
If I'm hunting loose ponies then  prolly Spanish salty or Spanish Tex cos  I love the boy ponies and I have almost all releases but not those those two. yet.

9. Who's your favorite pony and why? (choose only one! hard, I know)


BnG Ringlets and BB Chief. of course :biggrin:  like you didn't know that already :flirty:  :silly:  :happy:   ok so technically that's 2 but they are a married couple in my world since I was a kid- so that counts as one to me :accomplished:

1. How long have you been collecting ponies?
Since 2000, I took a break from pony collecting in about 2004-2011 when I was more interested in ABJD and other Japanese things

2. How did you start collecting ponies?
When I was a kid I had to donate my ponies, I was a allowed to keep a few favorites (donating my toys was a regular occurrence, my mom would just come into my room with a trash bag and we'd fill it up) and as a young teen I started feeling nostalgic and missing my childhood G1 ponies

3. How long have you been part of the MLP Internet community (not necessarily just the Arena)?
I was on the arena before when it was rather new but I got more interested in traveling to Japan so just forgot about it. When I started watching FiM in 2011 I made a new account, FiM really got me back into pony collecting so while G4 is not my favorite generation I'm thankful it reignited the spark

4. Who was your first pony?
Between being too young and having so many ponies I don't remember! I do remember when I first started collecting G3. I had heard Hasbro was rebooting my little pony and I ran out to Target and got Kimono

5. Who was your last pony (i.e., most recently purchased/acquired)?
Pearly mo baby Blossom at a garage sale this past weekend

6. What is your favorite generation?
G1!

7. About how many ponies do you have in your collection?
Hmm with all the generations together I guess around 250

8. Who's your grail pony, or alternatively, the pony you want most at the moment?
Brightglow - I really want to finally complete my Glow n show ponies! I've found 3 Happyglow thrifting over the years but never Brightglow  :cry:
I also really want mo Napper

9. Who's your favorite pony and why? (choose only one! hard, I know)
I guess I'll say Sweetstuff​, I had a friend when I was a kid she was many years older than me but she always kindly played ponies with me and she had Sweetstuff. I always coveted her Sweetstuff specifically​ but never got one of my own haha. In retrospect I bet she would've given it to me if I asked since she only brought the ponies out for me
