Hi from H&H
« on: July 14, 2017, 03:34:36 PM »
Hello everyone! I'm Haircutsandhighlighters or H&H, a G2 pony collector from Burnley, England. I grew up on G2, and started my current collection last year to bring back some happy childhood memories. I have suffered from depression since my early teens, and my MLP collection is one of the rays of sunshine in my life, taking me back to a time when things weren't as stressful. At present I have 64 G2 ponies (and one G1 baby) living on top of the cabinet in my study.

My favourite ponies - as you can probably guess from my username - are the ones that are very obviously pre-loved. The ponies with character - haircuts, pen marks and the like - that make me think "Aww, who was the child who loved this pony enough to do that?" and, again, take me back to my own childhood. I remember my Ivy wound up with a very short mane at some point.  ^.^

Now that I'm getting more involved in My Little Pony collecting, I'm here at the MLP Arena and looking forward to becoming a part of the community here. The last time I talked to another MLP collector was in primary school, so... here I am!  :biggrin:

Welcome!  :wave:

Aww, what a lovely explanation behind your screen name.  There sure are a lot of ponies with haircuts and pen marks on them out there!  I look forward to seeing you around the Arena :cheer:

Welcome to another UK person! You sound just like my sister, she used to go round carboot sales rescuing all the sad looking ponies for her sanctuary. I think she still has them all somewhere, ponies that 'need love'.

Hope you enjoy being a part of the Arena. People are great about answering questions and helping each other out so I am sure you'll soon find yourself part of the pony family.

Awesome to see a G2 collector as well. There are some hardcore G2 people here but I feel it's an underrepresented generation.

It's so nice to hear that you love the the ponies that the more picky would consider as "bait"  :biggrin: they are all special!

Have fun here!
