Scenes from Ponyville by Baron-Engel Scenes from Ponyville by Baron-Engel
Some more images from my ongoing Equestria dreamscape. As myself and Petina have continued to settle into this community I have started to note more of the regular inhabitants and landmarks in the town and outlying farms and dwellings.

Many of the buildings in Ponyville are made of mud and timber construction with thatched roofs. The building in the top left is the town public house "The Bucking Mare" where Black and Tan [link] works. It is typical of many of the structures in town.

The windmill in the bottom right is actually located a little ways outside of town. It is owned by an old earth pony called Grist. He is a widower and along with his daughter Cogs, yes that Cogs [link] , they keep the old place running. Mill not only grinds grain but also acts a water pumping station for several farms in area. The mill wind vanes are like the sails on a Chinese junk and can be adjusted to make the best use of the wind. Unfortunately for some reason the poor windmill's sails have been the victim of several collisions with a particularly speedy rainbow colored pegasus pony which has resulted in several pony-size holes and tears being made in them.

Needless to say Grist has not been amused by these accidents and has demanded reparations from the rainbow colored pegasus. After the latest incident Grist's patience finally wore out and went to the authorities. After much debate, arguing, and yelling it was decided that not only would Rainbow Dash have to pay for the repairs to the windmill, but this time she would have to do the repairs herself as a form of public service. She was not happy. Grist just smiled.

The two ponies in bottom left are a brother and sister. Their family runs one of the oldest and largest egg farms in the area. The brother is actually a rather accomplished harmonica player to and performs at The Bucking Mare regularly. At least once a week the family brings their eggs into town for sale on market day.

The earth pony with the cart is one of the local artisans who sells his wares in the town market square. His specialty is weaving straw, reed, bark into baskets, hats, mats, and window screens. He apparently makes excellent wares and even his small cart is primarily made from his woven work.

Rainbow "Crash" tore up the windmill's sails? I wonder what Derpy managed to do to it.

Derpy has amazingly inflicted no harm on the poor old windmill, and Grist and Cogs hope it stays that way.

I like the brothers' cutie marks, and the patches on the windmill's sails.

The patches are courtesy of Ponyville's own equine cruise missile, Rainbow Dash!

I love your 'slice of life' style art, showing scenes from day to day life. And I enjoy the story about Dash having to repair the sails on the windmill. She really is a careless flier, isn't she? Dash should just be happy that Ponyville can't take her license away or the like.

I don't if she is truly careless or just overly enthusiastic. Either way the wind mill has taken a beating.

Dash needs to learn to watch where she's going before she ends up a pegasus-shaped stain on the side of a house or mountain.
