Gosh! Who knew? Now clearly we kid's book collectors, Judy fans, and Friends of Dorothy, are in no position to make fun of the boys in the next corral. So perhaps we should look for some common ground? The best way I can think is to for us Oz folk to embrace our inner-pony and let young Robin Brown, from Merry Go Round in Oz, come out as the one of the very first Bronys.
In celebration of this Brony/Oz connection I'm happy to announce that Merry Go Round herself will be making a special guest appearance to the Winkie Con this summer! Why not canter out west and join us for the Ozziest weekend of the year - June 21-23, 2013 at the Asilomar Conference Grounds in Pacific Grove, California.
If by chance you think the Robin Brown/Brony connection is a stretch you can at least be grateful I decided against tying it all into Equus.
As a child in the eighties and early nineties I loved My Little Pony (along with Care Bears, Strawberry Shortcake and others) and I was always being teased for being the boy with ponies.
I wonder how many of those who did the taesing jumped on the Brony band wagon? ;)
I've never noticed that Merry-Go-Round really does look like a My Little Pony!I need to read that book again, it's been so long.
I'd love to send you some information about an upcoming Wizard of Oz promotion. Do you have an email I can send to?
