I collect nearly every pony I find. I only buy ponies at thrift stores and flea markets, and I almost always grab every single one I come across.

My collection isn't very organised, but it's fun. I will grab pretty much anything G2/G2/G3 that I don't have, no 3.5, and only G4 that I like. I'm not fond of 4.5, but I might grab that new line with the scenes on them, just as a display, maybe MIP or something different. I adore plush, but try to be restrictive because of size, so only buy in the wild or super extreme bargains now, I have no room for them! DVDs - gotta get them all, all gens. I particularly have an issue with G1 releases - the box art is so pretty and I buy them all. I need G1 DVD rehab! Books are much the same, but it's a slower process. I try to only get one copy of each story, so pick an edition and then search. I'm also obsessed with colouring books, particularly the G3 ones by Five Mile Press. Such pretty covers! I keep them in binders to keep them nice and organised because there's heaps.

I only buy the G4 Blindbags of FIM, because I've got a littlest pet shop display stand and I put them on there.

I collect G1 Ponies because I just want to get the ones who only appear in the specials, movie, and T.V series. And some that don't (I just add them when I recreate an episode or movie).

If I buy a bundle on eBay.uk I just keep the ones that I want and sale the ones I don't want.

A mother pony can be protective of her young just like dogs.

Who wants to changed this sig into ponies?

I used to collect everything too! G1-G4 and one of everything, duplicates if they were slightly different.  Shelves of Newborn Cuties, G2 Babies, and Big Brothers abound. But I realized I didn't like how it looked and there was no reason to buy stuff if it looked bad on the shelf. Inevitably, I don't love the look of a bunch of G3s on the shelf. I pared way down to just my favorites and halved those- half on display, half in a box somewhere until I rotate.  I think G1 as a whole together just looks so much nicer. Then, I arrange by year (and set). I find there is often a commonality in color usage by year, so arranging them that way helps the color flow and look more organized.
