Why no map of the rest of the world? Where do the Saddle Arabians even live?

You know, maps might be taken for granted, but cartography is difficult work and requires a lot of skill and time. It’s not such an easy matter to map out places. Just imagine for yourself how much one has to travel and take measurements.

Maps, particularly accurate maps, are very hard to come by if they even exist at all. Equestria is pretty well mapped out at least, on account of several surveys and farsight spells. Other places, not so much. We do have some maps acquired via trade but there’s still a lot of places we don’t know much about.

Saddle Arabians live southeast of the griffons, roughly speaking. It’s a long trip, either via train through the Crystal Empire to Griffonstone station and then onward via caravan, or across the sea, though that takes you past where dragons are (but pony-dragon relations have been better as of late, and it’s not an impossible journey).

I believe out of all the ships that involve two of the mane six being shipped together, this one is the rarest or if not pretty damn close to it. I didn’t even know this existed until someone mentioned it on a forum at fimfiction. It actually seems pretty cute.

I think I could watch dust forever.

so I stayed at this cabin earlier this summer. one day I woke up at 5a.m. and saw the incredible light coming through the front door. I couldn’t just let it go and fall asleep again. I set my camera up, shook some old pillows and caught this beautiful second before the wind blew all of this out
