‘We Don’t Have Tack for That’ Presented by ThinLine: Real-life My Little Pony Edition

Did you have a My Little Pony collection as a kid? Here’s your chance to start a new collection… WITH REAL HORSES.


First, let’s add some color to that boring old mane! Check out these equine hair extensions from Colorful Manes and Tails — they come in over 20 different hues. Here are a few examples:





Decide on a color you like? OK! Let’s move on. Now, it’s time to dye his coat. Horse Nation contributor Gretchen Pelham swears by food coloring — it’s non-toxic and washes out… eventually.

Vengeful real-life My Little Ponies! Could be interesting.

Next, your horse is going to need a Cutie Mark. These are applied in a similar manner to quarter marks — they’re just way more adorable.


Butterflies, hearts and heart-shaped apples are all acceptable Cutie Marks.

Sometimes Cutie Marks even designate special powers.


For instance, if your horse’s superpower is losing a shoe, this could be its Cutie Mark.

Last but not least, you need to decide whether or not you want your real-life My Little Pony to have a unicorn horn (available from Rustic Horse Shoe via Etsy)…


…or some Pegasus wings. As demonstrated in the video below, you can make a pretty sweet pair out of poster board and silver tinsel.

Voila! You are the proud owner of a real-life My Little Pony!!!
