Applejack is an orange, blonde-haired earth pony based on the "G1" toy of the same name. She is characterized as a "farm gal" who sports a cowboy hat and lasso, and speaks with a Southern accent. She works as an apple farmer at the Sweet Apple Acres orchard in Ponyville, using her great physical strength to "buck" apples out of trees. She lives with her grandmother Granny Smith, older brother Big McIntosh, younger sister Apple Bloom, and pet collie Winona; according to Faust, Applejack's parents are deceased. Applejack is honest, reliable, and the most "down-to-earth" of the Mane Six.
