Hi, longtime lover of mlp, first time collector. I’m 21 and from Quebec, Canada and I’ve always loved collecting things (from rocks and coins as a kid, to Breyers and DND dice as an adult). I had a few G3 ponies and one G1 Glory as a kid (no idea where Glory came from cause G1 was gone by the time I was born...) and I really loved them, but I had to give them and many of my other beloved toys away as I grew up (luckily they went to less fortunate kids so at least they went somewhere good). The only pony I managed to keep was Glory (again, I have no idea how she’s still with me and managed to avoid the great toy purge, I guess it’s just meant to be!). In the past year or two I’ve gotten into the idea of collecting mlp because I really adore how they look and the nostalgia, and I’m finally taking the plunge and seeking ponies for collecting. I’m in the process of restoring my Glory and I think she needs some friends ;)

I’m interested in G1, G2 and G3, and a few individuals from G4.

I’m also very passionate about animals, especially parrots and killer whales and bats, and I am currently pursuing a BSc in Environmental science/wildlife biology. I work in the boarding facility of an exotic vet clinic.

I’m not the most social person, but I look forward to meeting y’all and growing my collection! :)

Welcome! I've also been a collector of various bits and bobs since I was tiny :D (snap! on the dnd dice)

Your work sounds amazing, too! :O

I hope you enjoy it here ^_^

Welcome to the board! Sadly many of our childhood toys end up as part of a well meaning parent's 'clean up'. I think most of us dare not think of lovely cherished toys our parents bunged or gave away!

I'm so glad you joined us, and look forward to hearing more about your work! I work with animals as well (many here do, in fact) so I know I'd be keenly interested.

Welcome to the MLPTP!! As @evilbunnyfoofoo said, a lot of us here do work in the pet/animal industry. I myself am a veterinarian technician and work with small animals (dogs & cats mostly).

I am slightly jealous you get to work with exotics. I love exotic animals and deeply miss my days working with them.

You should post pictures of your Glory once she’s finished. I hope to see you around and get to know you better. :)

Welcome to the MLPTP! Funny how many commonalities other than ponies many of us have. I too am a somewhat antisocial, fellow animal lover and used to work in the veterinary field as well. We can certainly help you get your Glory all spiffed up and find her some friends!

Hi! We have a few things in common:
* We are both new here.
* We are both from Canada.
* We both have our original G1 Glory from our childhood!

Nice to meet you! Hope to see you around here lots!
