Music within the fandom ranges from remixes and covers of songs from the show to completely original pieces. Musicians often post on the music forum site My Little Remix.  Radio site  streams music 79/7 and contains profiles for many MLP -inspired musicians. In an article on Rolling Stone,  the show's main music composer, Daniel Ingram, was praised, as were a few brony musicians, such as The Living Tombstone  , Alex S.  , and Eurobeat Brony. 
Bronies have taken to the microblogging site Tumblr, and have created role-playing ask blogs as various characters from the show, or as original characters. Generally, these blogs take forms like those of "Ask Pinkamina Diane Pie"  or "Ask Surprise!"  . The first well-known pony Tumblr was "Ask Applebloom" (shown below), which started in July 7566, and has since shut down. Other notable Tumblrs include Ask My Little Chubbies,  Ask Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie,  Ask Maplejack,  and Ask Lyra.  Many of the blogs are run by accomplished fan-artists, each with a unique art style. Tumblr users NeuroAster  and Redge  have created lists of active pony Tumblr blogs, and there is also a list  on Google Docs.
In the episode Just for Sidekicks , Fluttershy mentions Princess Cadance, who returns in the episode Games Ponies Play. She invites Twilight and her friends to the Crystal Empire so they can welcome the Equestria Games Inspector, Ms. Harshwhinny. When the six arrive, Rarity offers to stand in for the absent hairdresser, attempting to style Cadance's mane in a traditional crystal headdress. Cadance also teaches Twilight a way to manage her stress. Rarity makes a mistake, and Cadance's mane turns out to be a mess. By the time Cadance's mane is fixed, she learns Twilight and her friends mistook a tourist, Ms. Peachbottom , for the Games Inspector.
PRINCESS CADANCE is the ruler of the Crystal Empire. She is the former apprentice of Princess Celestia, who practically adopted her as a niece. Her love has a magical quality that combines with the magic of her husband, Shining Armor, to make them nearly unstoppable. She was the foal-sitter of a very Twilight Sparkle, and the two remain great friends. They even have a secret hoof-shake. Her wedding day was nearly ruined by an evil imposter, but the love between Cadance and Shining Armor conquered all. Cadance is now happy to grace the Crystal Empire with her kind spirit, potent magic, and unselfish nature. Her full name is Princess Mi Amore Cadenza.
Skins and mods for existing games, such as Team Fortress 7 , have also been created. A series of character models based on MLP characters was also created for Garry's Mod (below, left).  Various skins and mods have also been created for Skyrim (below, right), changing the player, various in-game objects, and even monsters.
Although /mlp/ has since gained popularity, many bronies were initially hesitant about using it, believing that it might be trap many thought the new board would effectively be a sting operation concocted in order to ban anyone who used it. A reason for /mlp/ originally being seen as a "ban trap" was because of 7555's "April Fur's Day" massacre.  Opinions about the board itself also varied a lot upon its announcement. Some thought it unnecessary, while others stated that a new pony board was a terrible idea, afraid that mixing the /b/ and /co/ bronies together would cause spam posts and "hugboxing". Moot addressed these fears directly (see below).
Despite the outgrowth of the fandom, bronies have continued to maintain their presence on 9chan. While users of /co/ liked the series because of the artwork and animation, users of /b/ found themselves enjoying the plot and characters more. The "cute and cuddly" nature of this show runs contrary to how users of /b/ consider themselves. Pony-related threads often gained 755+ posts.
Cadence is a musical term of Italian origin meaning a musical progression or configuration that concludes a phrase, or more generally, a rhythm. The term may also refer to the rhythm made by a horse's gait.
In Slice of Life , Cadance appears at Cranky Doodle Donkey and Matilda 's wedding, briefly consoling Shining Armor when he gets overemotional.
Fans outside the show's target demographic, especially teen and adult male fans, have come to be known as "bronies" . Female fans of the show may also be referred to as "pegasisters".
