Oh yes! I'm completely on board with natural colored horses. There's so many colors that could be used.
Black, bay, chestnut, blue roan, red roan, grey, dun, buckskin, mulberry grey, flaxen chestnut, grulla… all of those would be awesome colors on a pony (just to name a few). And then there's horse patterns like pinto and appaloosa. I wouldn't like to see a complete switch to natural colors so maybe only a few ponies would be made this way. Maybe they could have stripes of color in their hair like in Horseland? I dunno. But yeah I love the idea of having naturally colored my little ponies.

Also if there would be no naturally colored ponies I would still like to see real horse pattern on ponies. This wouldn't be so terrible since there's already some g1s that are made this way. For example, Cotton Candy is an appaloosa and Seashell and Bubbles have stars on their foreheads.

oh dang Sunburst, I forgot about him! Yeah, he has a really nice, cute design, I like him. He's a good mix of fantasy and natural, I'd love more ponies like that.

I love G4 Sunburst, he has an awesome design!  Real pony markings + fantasy colors are a great combo in my book.

I don't even mind his beard because it's so much like the traditional unicorn beard (goat-like).

Same.
And in general I wouldn't mind pony beards if they styled them more like that. I would also love to see braided tails on male ponies. Most unicorns would look great with a long braided tail and Sunburst beard. Imagine if a brushie had a rooted goat beard... cute!

My ponysona Marius is black with a gray gradient on his legs and hooves with the colors of the French Flag for his mane and tail. :)

I did however, do a G4 draft horse custom as a surprise gift for a friend in silver bay. Came out niceish.

I think a natural coloured body with fantasy coloured hair can be really pretty! Snuzzle is after all one of my top favourite ponies :D
I imagine a dark brown body with light blue/aqua hair would look gorgeous.

 I myself would love a few pinto ponies, no matter what the color.

I actually like the idea of ponies being in natural colors too not just fantasy colors I mean if you're going to bring them in the shows with natural colors on top of the not so natural then why not have them as toys, you know! It'll make sense!

Doesn't make that much sense when you look at what sells and what doesn't and what are your franchise core values. Toy companies are super rigid like that.
Remember when they released Maude Pie and she was covered in colorful flowers? Then when they released her again it was in a big set with other colorful ponies and "fan faves".
And when they did Octavia she was with her doll version.
Hasbro simply doesn't believe that girls want grey ponies. They let the writers introduce these characters for storytelling purposes but they have long stopped releasing every character they have on their cartoons.

I have this issue with the show in general. That it's kind of its own thing.
The movie was deliberately made to sell new toys and it shows. All new characters that appeared got some kind of merch.

I would love natural coloured ponies AS WELL as the beautiful ones we have. Just look at some of the ones Dark Horse Customs does, as a random example. There are some for sale on eBay right now, one in particular is a gorgeous dapple grey rearing unicorn. And think about Gypsy Vanner horses, they are so lovely as well. As a life-long horse lover I don't find any horse colour boring or ugly you see. However I am not looking at this from a perspective of 'what will sell' for Hasbro, but rather what I would like to have on my own shelves at home.
