I just watched Winter Wrap-Up again yesterday and noticed something that still makes me ponder the origin and evolution of Equestrian Ponies. In the first scene of this episode Twilight Sparkle gets herself ready to go out into the cold by putting on boots, a scarf and... a saddle! She does so a bit clumsily, as if she's not even sure how to wear the last item. That scene reminded me of some of Rarity's fashion designs seen in the first episode of the series, designs that also include saddles. Then the dresses worn by some of the fillies at the party in Call of the Cutie also look like saddles. And now in Season Six we have an episode with "saddle" in the title.

She is always eager to make her friends laugh and goes to great lengths to make new friends and, as we all know, friendship is magic. Whenever her mane loses its bounce it hits me right in the heart.
2.) Rarity: Rarity has grown immensely as a character since her first appearance. Initially she seemed to be just a shallow egotist, but her generosity always wins out over…
