WELL this was a birthday gift for a friend who wasn't real into Equius, plus I figured Tavros does his communing business and Fluttershy does her taking care of animals business and they're fairly similar in dispositon so they might get along?
Plus Equius would crush any horse he attempted to ride between his mighty thighs.
Actually Lauren Faust, the woman who produces it says that one of her aims for the show is to appeal not only to little girls, but little boys and both their mothers and fathers. It's pretty clever and avoids falling into the trap of being too patronizing.
Also please watch it I don't want to be the only one
You headbutted that bear so hard its grandchildren would feel it, and when they came crying to their grandpa about the inexplicable pain in their heads, he would gaze thoughtfully off into the distance and tell them the tale of the guy wearing eyeliner and a sweatervest who once backed into him on stage.
It was a battle for the ages, and that sentence kind of got away from me there.
