One Fabulous Farmer by CosmicWaltz One Fabulous Farmer by CosmicWaltz
Download for full-size image! It's a doozy!

//

He came in from the fields, wearily placing his worn and heavy harness on a hook by the door. He kicked off each old horseshoe, dropping them at the side of his bed. All in a day's work for a farmer.

But sometimes, though he'd never admit it, he dreamed of more.

He locked the door, closed the shutters, and gave a final look around as though eyes were prying at every corner. Sure that he was alone, he reached below his bed, retrieving a hidden magazine. Now was his time to indulge in a guilty pleasure far removed from his farmer's life.

"Show Pony: The Canterlot High Fashion Magazine"

As he hoofed through the glossy pages of expert designer wear, he dreamed of the luxury of such a life. Embroidered cuffs, decorative buttons, pressed collars; no dirt, nor tears, nor fades of age to be seen. Finally, he reached the featured article, a highlight of Hoity-Toity's latest collection. As he looked over the painstaking detail the artist put into each stitch, he made a decision.

Farmer or no, he wanted something fabulous.

:iconrarityissrsplz: "... Big Macintosh made it... I just put a button back on for him..."
:iconfluttershyisshyplz: "Oh... um... W-well, the button is stitched back on very, very well..."

Because it is a vector, and may be used with permission, I did not put a name on it.
As such, if you see this anywhere being claimed by any other artist, let me know.
Righteous justice will be had.
There will be blood.
There will be screams.
There will be cake and punch served afterwards.

Edward had a braid, though. But I can kinda see the semblance. Might be the bangs.

That is a fantastic design that works so well for Big Mac. Were I to see him wear that in town, I'd expect to find a castle as his place of residence.

Your story blurb was also quite well done. I'm not going to lie, the idea of Big Mac being a secret lover and designer of high fashion is approaching new headcanon levels for me.

Level 27? Oh! That one is easy, it just keeps going on an infinate loop, but if you pick the wrong passage you get a never-ending bed of spikes. You need to take the top one and fight through the haters, then the middle one and pick up the *yay* power-up in order to go through the bottom one and fight the level boss. Easy.

Just to warn you, he did toss about 20 mares with a seismic toss once, and can dig through solid ground like it was water. You may need more than a frying pan.

Never sneak up on a pony/horse from behind, especially a pony whose family specialises in kicking things very hard for a living.

He's had some pretty major roles in a few episodes, though; Hearts and Hooves Day especially.

This is how Big Mac would look if he went to the Grand Galloping Gala! He looks so classy. Easily the second classiest pony, because no one can out class :iconmlpfancypantsplz:, the two probably would hang out!

His propensity for silence over words would probably work well in the upper class social stratum.

Oh, no no no! Not at all.

I'd say it's more a pistol in the cuff. Less blood to get on his suit and all. XP
