Anonymous asked: Perfect timing. I've been a bit shaken tonight by the Stars game so this was pretty much exactly what I needed. Thank you thank you thank you.
yeah i was just getting ready to start something else completely when the news broke. i decided we all just needed to look at something small and adorable to make us feel a little better.
hey cool cats, so i want to give the ‘ask a’ format a spin. so if you have any burning questions for these ponies just send me an ask addressing which ever one you like. if i think of a funny response i’ll draw up an answer. no idea how many of these i’ll do or how often but i thought i’d give it a try since it was suggested a few times. maybe it’ll turn into something 1 do a few times a month or weekly. lets just see what happens.
Anonymous asked: Hey, ignore those people who complain about you "ruining hockey" - they're the losers who don't really love hockey. If you're worried that Ponies could make hockey less cool, you don't follow hockey because you love it, you follow it as some status symbol of how cool you are. I love your work. The players love it too, and no one else's approval can outrank theirs. PS I adore your Sydney Bears pony. Does it have a name?
i love the idea that pony drawings can ruin hockey. i think that’s just way too funny. haha. i don’t know if the players love it but i know a lot of them laughed when they saw it and that’s really all i can ask for. as for the aihl ponies, the ones the represent the teams don’t have names but when i draw the players from those teams they will and yep, we will be having a bunch of adorable aussie hockey player ponies coming!
Anonymous asked: I love this blog so much. I even look forward to reading your replies to asks. You're awesome and I just read that reply about how you chose what type of pony/creature a player is and that's brilliant. You do such a great job here and make everyone so happy :) !! Thanks for everything :)
Hey thanks! That’s really nice of you to say. I try to keep the replies spaced a little bit cause I know it bothers some people to get a wall of text from me. I’m glad you like what I do :D
Anonymous asked: Do you have a difficult time coming up with ponies names for the players?
Nah at this points it’s a formula based on how the name sounds and the species. Like adding Uni- or icorn or pega or asus and obviously the easiest being just Pony.

Anonymous asked: I love your blog, and it makes me smile every time you post a new drawing. Sometimes, when nothing seems to be right, I come on here and look through some of the old drawings, and they bring a smile to my face and courage to my heart, and just like that, I'm ready to go face the pucks again! Love from the 412!
