Since EQD has it's Applejack Appreciation Day I figured I'd discuss with ya'll what Applejack means to me.

Since the beginning of the show I haven't disliked applejack, nor is she my fave (being #3 on my list currently of the mane6). However Applejack is very special to me in a way that I could not see the others. As I see her as family, or a representation of family. I live in a part of the world that is heavy on the wild west culture, we have a place know as "Heritage Park" which is a show of my city back when it was nothing more that an outpost lost in the middle of nowhere. We also have the Largest rodeo in the world, or Greatest, The "Calgary Stampede". And during stampede season everyone almost sounds like Applejack, just replace the obsession with "apples" for all things wild west and in the rest of the year replace it with "Oil".

So when I first started getting into the show I looked at Applejack as family. She was a farmer, with what I viewed as a western, not a southern accent. Who cared for her family and nieghbours with a kind western nature that you get from people on the prairies. And being in that culture she just fell into being some pony I could see as family, heck the whole Apple family. So she may not be my fave of the mane6 but never the less I see her in a different light than the others. A pony whose not a blood family member, but a family member from a strong bond. Something I get from the culture of where I live even though a lot of the times I try to hid any accent, though when the occasional "ya'll" slips out I both face palm and snicker at myself.

Also, Heck look at our pony mascots for our Province.
Provincial Ponies - ALBERTA by NiegelvonWolf Wild Rose and Midnight Oil. One is the representation of or Western Heritage, the other represents our Booming and strong Oil industry.

So that's what Applejack means to me, and I don't care to hear her being called worse pony. But I understand everyone is different in how the mane6 best relates to them.

So what does Applejack mean to you?

tl;dr - I see Applejack as a family member due to the area of the world where I live.

Always, I use to construct models myself but have since lost the time to do so. Always love seeing them, and I was the one who let it into the group "ShipEnthusiasts" so when I saw it I wanted to fave it right away. :3
