...so maybe that real aspect was the original intention and then they kind of abandoned it and decided later ponies needed boas and tutus and other important equine accessories..?
:lol:

In our stories the stable appeared rarely really, although Lemon Drop was always organising gymkhanas (strangely without Butterscotch).


I never knew about the Gymkhana playset until  was an adult collector so I found the whole idea of Butterscotch being sporty a bit odd... I don't remember Butterscotch much in the comics, but I see that the UK fact file says they are both sporty.

I don't mind them as long as you can take them off. I don't like things that are molded on like Tassles and her blanket

Not a fan - too "horsey" for me. I'm not a horse person - I'm a MLP person. ;) Plus the fact that they stain is reason enough for me to stay away from them.

I love the idea of them being like fancy dress to ponies, though :3

I'd never really thought about it til I read this thread and the thing that occurs to me is why do they need tack as who would ride them (With the exception of Megan and Sundance)

I think they are cute on Collector Poses. Never tried any other pose. I'm especially scared of them staining the pony, so no one wears them. I guess they could be used as props in an elaborate display.

Had one on a Peachy when I brought her from eBay.uk, she had the stain from the saddle on her.

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

Who wants to changed this sig into ponies?

I never knew about the Gymkhana playset until  was an adult collector so I found the whole idea of Butterscotch being sporty a bit odd... I don't remember Butterscotch much in the comics, but I see that the UK fact file says they are both sporty.

I never knew about it as a kid either. I had the Fact file but never knew who Butterscotch was. I guess maybe it was a bit early for me to have a playset like that - I was 2 in 1984 and 3 in 1985 - so nobody ever bought it for me. She's not in the comic at all I don't think. Aside Cotton C and Blossom, the collector ponies are kind of mysterious ghosts in the UK. They're in the factfile but pretty much nowhere else...

Ironically my ponies got to dress up as Tennis stars (usually CJ, dunno why, maybe Revolt at PE making her seem sporty?) and dinner date divas or in lingerie when I was about 4. But I had absolutely no horsey stable accessories until I was at least eight, and only really associated that stuff with Lemon Drop as she was always organising gymkhana and so on in the stories.

Yep I am so glad I started collecting as an adult, that was one of the first playsets I ever bought as an adult and it's one of my favourites. It's really simple and uses those wholesome primary colours that only the Euro stuff seems to have.

I just thought of something else... what about the Merry Go Round ponies?

...Oh my goodness, that's an entirely separate ethical debate!

Not least when I think of their (UK comic) origins of being trapped (enslaved?) inside the 'Whispering whirligig' by some nefarious soul...until Twirler and Thundercloud and whoever else helps to rescue them...

Yep just thought I'd open a whole new can of worms.

I have my mitts on most of the UK comics 1 to 30 but I haven't read most of them yet.

LM to the rescue again xD Whirligig begins in comic 124...

But unfortunately LM doesn't have 126 posted yet!
However the big spoiler at the end is they find the MGR ponies. :) who are trapped in the whirligig thing waiting to be rescued.

My girlfriend says she saw the MGR ponies and fakies that she had when she was little as being very theatrical types who liked to be dressed up at all times. Same with her Keypers horse. She remembers them setting up a drama group and saying that anyone who didn't have a fancy saddle couldn't join :lol:. Snobby little ponies :lol:!

Haha that's cute!


If we're talking about MGR ponies and saddle fakies, I can love those. I had Sunnybunch growing up, and the prettiest yellow fakie with a permanent decorative saddle and green and white hair.

I think I was more disturbed by the fact that the saddles pop open on the Secret Surprise ponies more than the fact that they were wearing them. I didn't have any MGR ponies in my childhood herd but I guess I overlooked the saddles on them because they're Merry Go Round Ponies but in keeping with the Ponyland lore maybe the saddles are permanent reminders of their captivity and rescue from the Whirligig like the Twinkle Eye ponies gem eyes?

Gotta admit... I dont like that whole "horsey" stuff. Im a horse person, yes, but ponies were no riding ponies for me. I had the Show Stable as a kid (named Ponyhaus -> pony house in german) and I never really used the bridle and saddle. I still dont like that stuff much. A pony thats wearing clothes and eating ice cream and stuff does not wear a saddle :P
