Big Brother Ponies

     The Big Brothers were introduced in Year 5, and were the first male My Little Ponies. They were printed between 1986 and 1987. The Big Brother ponies are larger than other ponies, and have shaggy hooves like Clydesdale horses. They are all earth ponies. Each Big Brother pony has two colors in his mane and one in his tail, like early unicorn ponies had. A second set of Big Brother Ponies was released in Year 6. Each pony came with a hat, a bandana with a teardrop-print pattern, a frog brush or grasshopper comb, and a ribbon.
