You've got to love some meta humor, am I right? Don't worry you guys, I'm sure what frustrations you might have are the same frustrations experienced by your fellow artists. Keep together and encourage one another and I'm sure you can keep it up!
Anyhow, welcome to day 16 my friends! Over the past 24 hours we have received 165 ponies bringing up our total to 3764 ponies! Such excellent work you guys, we're so close to 4000.
Now on to today's prompt which I hope will give you a bit of a challenge! While we have seen plenty of ponies I haven't seen many other species represented in any way. So, in order to give the other denizens of Equestria their due tonight's prompt is to draw a pony as another species/draw a pony transforming. Hopefully with a prompt like this it will help you broaden your horizons and serve as a fun challenge! As usual you can find our submitter here.
Note: Another species can either mean animals (cats, dogs, ect), species such as griffons, dragons and the like or fantasy species. Really, as long as we can tell it once was a pony but is something different you can let your imagination go wild!
Now my friends, on to the gallery!
Rarity is lying in wait because Rarity Day is finally upon us! That's right gang, in celebration of our best marshmallow pony she is getting a day to herself during New York's Fashion Week in September! In order to give you guys enough time we'll have the day towards the tail end of the week on September 13th, giving you all two weeks from today to dig up the best Rarity content you can find or create and send it on in!
As usual we will be accepting anything from art, crafts, music, and more for the event! All you have to do is send your email into firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "Rarity Day" followed by what you are submitting (example "Rarity Day - Artwork"). This greatly helps with our sorting!
I'll make sure to give you guys periodic reminders as the two weeks tick down! For those of you curious as to which ponies still need their day this year we have:
- Sunset Shimmer - September 22, Fall Equinox
- Pinkie Pie - October 7, World Smile Day
- Applejack - October or early November, Cider Season
- CMC - November 20, Children's Day
- Luna - December 21, Winter Solstice
Thanks for listening everyone and thanks for participating in these little appreciation days so far!
Twilight seems a bit confused by this little parcel of grass. Why is it here? What is its purporse? And most importantly why is she standing in it?
Evening everyone! Ready for a chat?

It turns out that UK Friendship Club tour we posted about a few months ago is a lot more popular than Hasbro anticipated. The bus stopping outside of Birmingham city centre spawned five out lines and an army of disappointed parents and children as they weren't able to get in on the event.
You can find images of it over at the Birmingham Mail article here.
Thanks to Ice Wing for the heads up.
Starlight's journey into the world of pony books begins today with "Starlight glimmer and the Secret Suite". Originally, this one was titled "Space Time Suite", and was changed. I have no idea if the actual story changed with it.
Head on over here to pick it up!
Thanks to Feather for the heads up.

It's those quiet ones you have to watch out for, I swear. Watch your back Discord!
Comic time! Get the rest after the break.
It has been awhile since we've had a ratings post, but there is a good reason for that. In the past few weeks we've been talking about scrapping them altogether but have decided to keep them around as some people do like them and ratings do seem to have stabilized for the most part at an increased level. Recently I have seen a fair share of advertising for the show on Discovery Family, something I'm not sure they did before, but do appear to be doing now which could account for the bump.Though ratings are here to stay, remember if you don't like them we have implemented a filter system in response to your suggestions which you can find by clicking the Settings button (the little gear) in the top right corner and selecting Hide Ratings Posts.Anyhow, on to the ratings! Things are back up in the 200ks as Dungeons and Discords received 277,000 viewers this weekend. Pretty good in comparison to ratings in the past! As I said before maybe Discovery Family is finally getting their advertising act together or something. These views also compare well to 28 Pranks Later at 203,000 viewers and Times are a Changeling at 267,000 viewers.
All numbers are from ShowBuzzDaily and thanks to all of you who continued sending these in even while we weren't posting them.Twitter: Calpain
This was probably the hardest archive to compile just due to the cheer amount of pony music videos we've seen throughout the years. Boatloads of incredible stuff has been released over the years in this format. As always, please send any we are missing!
While this is primarily focusing on music videos, there are a few in here that are simply ponifications of things that didn't quite make it into animation.
Below, you will find some of the top pony music videos the brony fandom has to offer, covering My Little Pony characters from both the online pony world, as well as the mane cast. There are five major categories to choose from:
- Drama and Emotion
- Action and Adventure
- Comedy and Slice of Life
- General Music Video
- Dark and Creepy
And if you want other archives, these two are done as well:
Best Animation archive
Best SFM Animation archive
Go get it all below!

Description: Like ponies, changelings can get pretty paranoid at times. After all, it's not every day that a changeling gets kicked out of the hive for being a pony.
That Changeling's a Pony!

Good morning everypony! I was wondering if you could help me out with something. This adorable bat pony is now the official mascot of Equestria Daily's Forums. Created by the talented Ashley Nichols, she joins Spotlight Splash and Rocket Tier for a trio of awesome flying pony mascots and represents our official EQD Forums that launched a few days ago!But here's the catch and what I need your help with; She needs a name! It's your mission to check out the official thread on the forums here and make your suggestions and vote. She'll get sad without a name soon and you don't want her to get sad, do you? No, I thought not so hurry and sign up on the forums if you haven't and help her out!
