I make no effort to hide it, I love Braeburn. He is easily my favorite minor or background pony. He's just so lovably doofy and adorkable. I like the idea of him being good family to his kin, especially little fillies like Apple Bloom. Since she's too little to buck the apples yet, he decided he'd give her a lift, and his hat! And that apple she's reaching for, what else would it be but a braeburn apple?
Family bonding for the win.
