My Little Pony

Dan Burn-Forti

A previously unseen story unearthed during archiving.

In Dan’s own words – Morecambe Bay in November is mostly a grey and chilly experience, unless My Little Pony is your thing.  The devotees of this plastic equine oddness seemed rather old to be playing with dolls, but who am I to judge.  There were contests for the best dressed pony, homemade cakes for sale and a plethora of tightly fitting My Little Pony t-shirts that had presumably been well loved since they fitted properly.  One paranoid exhibitor had hired a security guard to protect her super rare Magenta Cotton Candy pony.  When I asked how much it was worth she replied “at least £80”.  Definitely needed that guard then.
