Bobbing for Apples by JoeyWaggoner Bobbing for Apples by JoeyWaggoner
Recently Hot Topic youtube channel released a video interview with Applejack where she revealed that she got her hat "Bobbing for Apples at the Ponyville Fair," (See the full interview here:… ) after seeing that video I decided to make a comic to expand on that a bit.

Production on this comic was hard due to the fact that my art program kept freezing up while I was drawing it, but I'm pretty satisfied after finishing it. I personally think this is one of my best comics, it's one of my few comics that actually makes me kind of emotional.

Hope you enjoyed reading it.

For the fandom, the absence of Applejack's parents is very much a mystery. Although it's implied they are gone. Following in the footsteps of this idea, I must say this strip has helped foster the feeling of sympathy and compassion for Applejack, Big Mac and Apple Bloom. You've taken an object fans see as common place and made it special by saying so much without saying anything. You properly conveyed the rural family values as is common with the character, making this strip perfectly acceptable and flow well with canon. I find this strip moving and your message was well conveyed. Excellent work.
What do you think?

Well, for such a long time i've been thinking of how Applejack got her hat. and i'm sure a lot ofbronies(it's not an insult...) we're wondering that...
So, it's realy interesting and original.
Also your art is amazing! the colouring is realy cute and good. the porpotions are well done and the stip is well built.
Congratiolations on this one and i'm sure you can do even better ones with will have 5/5 everything.
i hope you get more noticed and grow a huge fanbase
(sorry for the «repetitions», the 100 word minimum is realy not nice or easy to write...)

I always liked the fandom idea that Applejack's hat and Applebloom's bow once belonged to their parents, their father and mother respectively, and that they wear them out of the love they had for them...unfortunately, that accursed scene in 'Somepony to Watch Over Me' ruined it. A 'Hats and Bows Closest'? That's gotta be the stupidest thing I've ever heard!
