My contest entry for the Family Fun Contest being held by (By the way, I hope the pony silhouette is good enough and can be seen okay. If anyone's confused, it's on Applebloom's baby bag.)
I've had the idea for this pic in my idea roster for a while, so this contest was the perfect opportunity, especially considering the expansion I've made on the Apple Family lately. And as for Granny Smith, I'm sure she's waiting at the house, probably perfecting a big pot of hot apple cider from the first harvest of the season for everyone.
..........*goes to get myself a cup of instant apple cider*.........No, I seriously am.

And the parents are awsome!
*Sniff* I wish this was a reality, I feel so bad for the Apple siblings sometimes, but then I remember they are doing just fine. I assume this is before whatever happened to AJ's folks? If so that makes it all the more heart-breaking xD
The lighting, poses and expressions are all top notch! I voted for this and was suprised it didn't place, but I was happy to see it on EQD via Drawfriend. Excellent job my friend
Unfortunately, I think we had a cheater in the contest who whizzed into the top three at the last moment and pushed me back. No big deal anymore, though, seeing it on EQD was a red-letter day for me. Thanks!
There was a drought the following summer after this picture, and Bramley overworked himself to heat stroke trying to do the work that needed to be done to keep his family provided for. It turned out to be fatal. I haven't set in stone yet what happened to Floret afterwards.
I would hope she does ^^
Aw, poor guy. What an awful way to go, but he was doing what needed to be done. I'm guessing Granny Smith scolded him saying things like, "you don't need to go out there" or "we can make do until autumn with the preserves".
You've earned a watch.
Wait, they don't have thumbs

Have you gotten to participate in the group vote?
Also, based on your icon, it looks as if your OC and my OC could be twins. XD
