Use Hooves, Not Horns - Wrap Up Winter by kefkafloyd Use Hooves, Not Horns - Wrap Up Winter by kefkafloyd
Winter Wrap Up is coming, and in Ponyville every able bodied stallion and mare must do their part. Tradition demands that citizens do without magic, and just in case you forgot, posters plastered all over town drive the point home - Use Hooves, Not Horns, and wrap up winter the earth pony way.

---

Someone requested that I do an homage to Abram Games' Use Spades, Not Ships with ponies. [link] The original poster, commissioned by Her Majesty's Stationery Office, implored British citizens to grow their own food and rely on domestic production, rather than having food and supplies shipped to the island nation. Ships were vulnerable to German U-boat attack, and countless tons of food were lost to sunk ships. The message was effective, and Britain's increased self-reliance helped them through the war.

I appreciate this poster all the more now that I see what it's based on.  Brilliant work!

The foolish, conservative Earth Ponies are so jealous of Unicorn magic they want to impose their intrinsic handicap on the Unicorn population once a year in the name of tradition. How very mean and petty of them.

One thing I don't get about all this? If they're so passionate about doing it the "Earth Pony Way", why are Pegasai helping? Earth Ponies can't fly.

They may be able to fly, but they're still using their hooves to move the clouds. Ergo, logically consistent. They can't just magic the clouds away.
