Happy new head canons for everybody!

This is a lot like my Spike and Celestia comic, it's an interesting idea, and although I don't believe it, I could see others doing so.

If the writers ever decide that they wanted Applejack's parents to be alive, this could be one way to do it.
It actually wouldn't be that hard to do, if the Wonderbolts are a branch of the Equestrian military, then AJ's parents wouldn't be around very much, (which could make a good episode, now that I think about it, sort of like a returning soldier thing and Applebloom is nervous about it).
They might not have been at the family reunion because they were needed elsewhere, which would be obvious to everyone so there'd be no need to mention them.
I say that if Twilight can have a brother that no one knew about, that is the Captain of the Royal Guard, then Applejack can have parents no one has seen that are Wonderbolts.

Some of you might say "Why did you pick those colors for AJ's parents? They aren't at all similar to the other Apples.". The reason I did so was because I based them on this painting on the wall (which is a parody of the painting American Gothic) at sweet apple acres [link] . Also the similarities of colors between two ponies coats hasn't always been shown to represent familial connections.

:iconapplejackshrugplz: Pony genetics... how do they work?!
If need be, you can imagine that Granny Smith's husband was a Pegasus, and one of Applejack's grandparents on the other side of the family was a pegasus, or that a great-great-uncle on the mother's side alone as a pegasus, according to Mr. cakes logic, or that it's a fan comic making a joke abot magical flying ponies and get over it :p!

Also, the beginning is supposed to be slightly confusing.

Now if only someone could think up some names for them...


My Little Pony: Friendship is Magicİ and it Characters both belong to Hasbroİ.

This is a bit funny and still sweet at the same time. This brings in new thoughts to AJ's parents and new ideas to where they are. I find that Pegasus pony parents(say that three times fast!)are highly strange to earth ponies . I really do hope you make more concerning why the parents do not live at the farm, but over all the originality in this is at a high rate. This is something I would like to see more of in young artists and you show lots of good imagination in you're case. I loved the comic and you really did a wonderful job.
What do you think?

Sorry for the stingy rating, but I wasn't entirely sure what to give this. It's nicely done and a very interesting twist on the Apple Family. Artwork is nice and very clean, practically show quality, and the colors are well defined. Certainly put a wide grin on my face.

This is my first critique, so sorry if it's a little short in the "critique" part.

One has to wonder, however, how two Pegasi conceive three Earth Pony kids. You'd think at least one of them would be a Pegasus too.

One also has to wonder; if the Apples are Wonderbolts, why hasn't Rainbow Dash pestered Applejack to meet them already :p She'd want any way to get in.

My theory came from the fact that Applejack's parents seem to leave behind synthetic contrails (trails of condensed water from an
aircraft at high altitude, seen as white streaks against the sky) when in the air suggesting that their suits are propelled by engines, 
where as other 
pegasi like Rainbow Dash leave behind more natural looking contrails.

My theory is that their wings are experimental flight mechanisms used by handicapped Wonderbolts that lost their ability to fly and Applejack's parents are testing them because Earth ponies tend to be physically stronger than unicorns and pegasi due to relying only on their physical prowess as they don't have the luxury of magic or flight for everyday duties.

I have a solution to why 2 earth ponies can give birth to a Pegasus! Pennant squares baby!

Punnet, I think.

They'd still need to beat the odds at least three times, but sure, I guess it's possible.
