Mykie’s first owner was a little boy called Jack.

This is just an observation--not a question at all. I followed a link to your "Simple Celestia" image from about two weeks ago and found it was what I'd been looking for--anatomically plausible for an intelligent, equine-derived species, without either going to the extreme of a long realistic horse face or a cartoonish anime style (with eyes so large that there's no room in the head for a brain, which might explain some pony behavior sometimes, I suppose). Anyway, I liked it. Thanks.
