Last Pony by WhiteDiamondsLtd Last Pony by WhiteDiamondsLtd
Poor, sweet, adorable Applejack! :crying: Consistently placing last or very near it on the Mane Six ponies popularity polls, and the subject of "background pony" jokes and the like. I've never understood why more people don't care for her, because in my opinion she has a fantastic personality and a very appealing design. Who wouldn't want a pony like her as a friend, really? But even I, who decidedly adore her admittedly don't draw enough of her I'm ashamed to say, something I figured I should start trying to remedy now. So here she is, in all of her loose-hair (just because) lovable glory.

Go Applejack~ :heart:

This picture, along with the amount of AJ work you did, has increased my love for AJ EXPONENTIALLY. (okay, it's not like I didn't love her before...)
But yes, all the "background pony" jokes and the lack of AJ annoys me so much!  AJ actually gets her own episode, and do the majority of fans care?  No!  All they do is talk about Derpy's 30 second appearance!  I mean, Derpy is a great pony and all, but that episode was especially dedicated to Applejack! 

I love Applejack for her hardworking, yet easygoing personality.  Also, I'm a Southern gal as well ;) And don't forget, she's sweet and adorable ^-^ 

"How do you like them apples?" :iconapplejack-plz:

I hate that "background pony" joke... poor Applejack... :( :( :(
She might be my least favourite pony from the Mane 6, but she deserves more love like any of the other ponies from the Mane 6 and she's as important as them :nod: :nod: :nod:
She's just like Twilight, Rarity, Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy and Spike! She's a main character! And I really hope she can get what she deserves and needs to become a more loved and not-a-last-pony character

Pst... I still don't perfectly get why do they call her a "background pony"! Is it because she's boring or something? :-?

Hi WhiteDiamond, I found your work, and I think it's amazing. I was wondering whether I could use it for some covers for future music I'll be creating. I'll credit you whenever I use it, and link to your DeviantART page. Thanks in advance.

And she was one of the originals, too, (I mean she's been around a long time) and her design is just adorable. I love this art but I don't have time to post a long comment, which is heart breaking to me. </3

...*Sniff* Oh, Celestia, why have I only now seen this...? Finally, someone who shares my sentiments! And she's consistently falling further and further into obscurity! You can build a plushy of the Mane 6 at Build-A-Bear EXCEPT Applejack, there was a little packet of stickers in the greeting card aisle at my grocery store that had Twilight Sparkle, Rarity, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Princess Celestia, Princess Luna, PRINCESS CADENCE, but no Applejack, and even the toys at McDonald's have the Mane 6 INCLUDING Vinyl Scratch, but EXCLUDING Applejack! This is really bringing me down, man... No one seems to realize all of her great virtues and everything that's good about her... They just see her as some dumb, boring, incestuous redneck who's obsessed with apples! And lately, Hasbro hasn't really been doing much to dispel those statements about said supposed apple obsession! Yes, people, she knows a lot about apples! Yes, she mainly sells apple-related products! It kinda comes with running an apple orchard! It's her livelihood! But she's shown time and again that that's not all she cares about! She hardly ever even TALKS about them! And why do people find her boring? Is it because she doesn't have a mental breakdown every other appearance? Is it because she doesn't break the fourth wall and defy the laws of physics? Is it because she doesn't go around showing off, trying to show everyone that she's the best in every facet of life? Because she isn't demure and ladylike? Or is it because having a sane, sensible, down-to-earth, honest, loyal, hardworking, dependable, modest, believable, and sincere character is just so downright boring and lame that they couldn't POSSIBLY be interesting? Seriously, people, take a moment to evaluate her instead of just applying stereotypes to a character that's so apparently "boring"! I believe you may find that she's not quite what you thought at first.

In all fairness, I do think Applejack has been enjoying a much more positive response from fans since the time I originally drew and posted this picture, but it's true that she frequently seems to receive unfair treatment when it comes to merchandise, a fate she often shares with Rarity actually. I know with the Build-A-Bear plushes at least they will be getting around to releasing her (which is good, because my Build-A-Bear Rarity is lonely), but as for the McDonald's toys, or any similar case when she (and Rarity) are passed on in favor of minor or background characters especially I agree, it is plain ludicrous!
