Earth Pony (Friendship is Magic)
Earth Ponies are one of several kinds of ponies that live in Equestria. They are the closest in nature to normal Horses, lacking the magical powers of unicorns or Pegasi but possessing a connection to the land.
At one point, the Earth Ponies were ruled over by the villainous Grogar, until he was overthrown by the unicorn Gusty the Great. Despite this, the Earth Ponies lived uneasily with their unicorn and Pegasus neighbors, though they were forced to provide food in exchange for the other tribes assisting in its growth by controlling the sun, moon, and weather. However, tensions between the three groups built until it drew the Windigos, malevolent spirits who brought freezing weather to the land. Unable to grow food and unwilling to make peace with their neighbors, Chancellor Puddinghead, leader of the Earth Ponies, decided to find a new land they could inhabit in peace. He succeeded, only to discover that Commander Hurricane of the Pegasi and Princess Platinum of the unicorns had discovered the same land.
The three monarchs quarreled, summoning the Windigos to the location they hoped would be their new home, and were ultimately frozen as they continued to squabble. Fortunately, their aides Smart Cookie, Clover the Clever, and Private Pansy were able to put aside the conflict between their tribes, and together brought forth the first Fire of Friendship. This thawed out the three rulers, who overcame their own feud and agreed to settle their peoples in the new land together, dubbing it Equestria. However, to insure that all ponies would be represented fairly, two Alicorns were chosen to rule the land: Princess Celestia and Princess Luna.
