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.
"Oh, Rarity! This ensemble is so amazing! It so perfectly mirrors Hoity-Toity's Autumn Collection while matching its wearer's frame and fur! Opulent without being gaudy; bold without being loud! This is truly haute couture at its absolute finest!"
"... Big Macintosh made it... I just put a button back on for him..."
"Oh... um... W-well, the button is stitched back on very, very well..."
