Back to my Equestria dreamscape, many of my dreams from Ponyville are nothing more than slice of life dreams about living in a land populated by brightly colored talking ponies. This is one of those moments.
The little filly is called Golden Dawn, and when she is not in school or playing with her friends she can usually be found helping her mother run the family booth in the Ponyville’s market square. Her father is a conductor on the CMR, Canterlot Manehattan Railroad, and while his job keeps him away from his family for days on end he is a very devoted father and husband.
Golden Dawn’s mother supplements the family’s income by making and selling ribbons and bows for both mares and stallions. Now Golden’s mother Blue Rose is very good at making her product, but her daughter has a natural knack at selling them.
So I guess it was inevitable that eventually one of us in our household would succumb to Golden’s ruthless sales pitches and relentless cuteness. Since Carousel’s job as delivery pony results in her spending hours in the Market Square on market days, and she has longest mane and tail I guess she was prime candidate for the little filly’s sale pitch. Besides Carousel has been experimenting with different mane style recently. baron-engel.deviantart.com/art…
Not only is Golden good as selling her mother’s products but also she has a talent for grooming and styling ponies’ manes and tails. So not only can she sell you a silk brocade bow she’ll show how to style your mane so both your hair and her mother’s product look there best.
So when Carousel came home one day from work with violet bows in her braided mane and a matching bow tied to her tail it was not too big of a surprise. Around the dinner table that evening it was source of much talk with Carousel discussing with Petina about what color of bows would look good in the white unicorn’s mane and tail.
After dinner and the dishes were done we then spent the rest of the evening together lying on floor by the fireplace. Carousel and I read the latest edition of the Happy Mare’s Home Journal catspaw-dtp-services.deviantar…
and Petina worked on edits for her next story. All and all it was nice end to a pleasant day.
To be continued.
