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

Who wants to changed this sig into ponies?

I like most ponies in the trotting pose, Gusty pose, Beachball pose and Chief's pose.
For the others it depends upon the individual pony, in my eyes some suit their poses and some don't.

Any poses I don't mention are ones I don't feel strongly about one way or another! :)

Favorite G1 poses:

-Bubbles (sitting) pose
-Posey (walking) pose
-Sweetberry pose (less because of the pose itself and moreso because some of my all time favorites are in this pose such as Tic Tac Toe and Pillow Talk)
-Powder pose
-Surprise pose
-all three winger poses...
-Spring Song pose
-Newborn Tappy, Bouncy, and Yo-Yo poses (they all remind me of a kitten about to pounce  :lol:)

Least favorite G1 poses:

-Firefly pose (mouth is a bit awkward and I think it's odd they molded the hoof separate from the rest of the leg on only one leg but not the rest)
-Moondancer pose (space between the front and back hooves on both sides look off)
-Dancing Butterflies pose (pose itself looks cute but the hair does end up blocking the symbol if you want the hair to fall on the display side)
-BBE unicorn pose (I have BBE Baby Gusty and I feel she has balance issues due to this pose)


I feel more neutrally about pretty much all G2 poses, they're all more neutral poses compared to G1 ones... so there's nothing to really list for me.

Favorite G3 poses:

-Minty (donkey) pose (all time favorite MLP pose in general, I want to collect every pony in this pose, they look so happy and excited!)
-Sunny Daze pose
-Sweetberry (diva) pose (sassy ponies!)

Least favorite G3 poses:

-Waterfire pose (Waterfire is my favorite G3 and a lot of my favorite G3s also happen to be in this pose but I don't dig the pose itself a whole lot, though the pose doesn't really stop me from loving the ponies at all, I just don't think the open mouth is molded as well here as it is in say, the donkey pose, neck is odd too)
-Art/Core pose (I like it on the art ponies themselves but it's boring on the more regular ponies when they did the Core 7 thing)
-StarSong and Sweetie Belle poses for the same reasons as above, they're boring

Even though I dislike some poses it doesn't end up making that big of an impact on how much I like a pony otherwise. I still buy and collect ponies in poses I don't like and some of my favorite ponies happen to have poses I'm not that big on. Like a lot of the Waterfire pose ponies in G3 for example (Waterfire herself is my favorite G3 and I also absolutely adore Comet Tail, Fancy Free, Gigglebean, July Larkspur, and Ribbon Wishes).

My favorite poses are the G1 Posey Pose, the G1 Whizzer pose, G3 Sunny Daze pose, G3 Daffidazey pose, and the G4.5 Closed Wing pose.
I'm not a big fan of the G3 pegasus poses just because they're like flipped versions of each other. I also feel like the Moondancer pose is weird.

I used to be much more pose picky but not so much now. I don't hate any poses. BUT I don't really like the warped versions of poses they used for the Sundae Best set, the faces look weird to me.

Otherwise I'm not a fan of the collector pose. Especially not on ponies like Lemon Drop and Peachy. Most especially on Lemon Drop, because no way she can showjump with her legs together like that.

Also, I dislike the Pony Bride pose. It sort of works on the Colorswirls but only because of the colours and I'd prefer them to be different. I don't like any of the other ponies in that pose, just that set.

I like most other G1 poses. I'm iffy about unique poses like Surprise Twins etc. But mostly the other G1 poses I like.

I can't remember enough G2 and G3 poses to express an opinion on most, but the Strawberry Reef one...I think it's hers - and the diva - not a fan.

I'm not too pose picky but here are mine:

G1 poses I reaaaaally like:


collectors pose


shy earth




gusty pose

buttons pose


I like all of them  :)

G1 I don't like

The secret surprise pose. The face goes from normal to really narrow and it bothers me.


I like all of them  ^.^

G3 poses I really like

crystal lace pose


fizzy pop pose

Gem Blossom pose

Heather Winds pose


Coconut Grove pose

Silver Glow pose

Bath Time Sweetsong pose

G3 poses I don't like that much

Daffidaisy pose (that face)

Star Surprise pose

Kimono pose. I don't know why but I've always felt that it has a really smug expression. Almost like the pony's judging me.


There's only one main g4 pose and it's not amazing but not awful.

But Cadence's pose IS awful. I will never get over that stupid alligator grin.


tbh I like the G4.5 poses much better than the regular G4. They have better ears and legs IMO.

Except for Celestia. 4.5 Celestia is awful.

For 4.5 the trotting pose is my favorite.

I love...

Bowtie pose (quintessential adorable pony pose)
Glory pose (Moonstone was a childhood fave)
Baby Noddins pose (I wish there were more in this pose)
Ice Crystal pose (looks shy and a little camp)

I do not like...

Gingerbread pose (Just looks clunky and awkward to me...such a shame as I love her colour scheme)
Baby Lucky pose (much prefer the feathered hoof boys)

Stupid alligator grin? Which Cadance?

I don't know if there are any poses I outright hate. I mean, the Firefly Pose and the Collector Pose both suffer from early-effort flaws, and the stock G4 pose is kinda bland, but I don't hate them.

I do have some I really like, though:
* Buttons pose. I love how the horn is in the perfect position for both spellcasting and charging
* Glory pose.
* Bow Tie pose.
* Honeysuckle pose. I dig the mid-stride look
* Posey pose. Same as above
* Whizzer pose. Excellent mid-flight pose.
* G4 Princess Celestia pose. Looks cool, and I like that it's basically the Glory pose (except flipped), meaning Celestia has a very similar pose to Majesty
* G4 Playful Ponies-size Cadance/Luna pose.

I don't have a lot to say about G1 poses.  I like the Sweet Stuff pose the least but I don't exactly dislike it either.

I don't know enough about G2 poses and I think the only G3 pose I actually dislike is the diva pose.  For that pose, I think it's more how they painted the eyes?  I don't know what it is, but there is just something "mean girl" about it.
