I usually draw ponies in a style closer to the show as most people seem to like it better. After doing so much for the conventions I went to I had to do something that was more my style that you guys don't see too much. I have done it a couple times, with minimal approval from everyone, so enjoy.

Ahhh!  I love it!  It looks like my Fjord and my mini out in the pasture!
Like I pointed out below, I love how you made Big Mac into a draft.  Not just any draft, but a Shire.  He definitely has the build, stamina, strength, and personality of most drafts.  A light horse (which most of the other ponies would be) would freak out if a leaf falls on the ground, but most drafts would just stare it it as if to say, "Huh.  A leaf fell on the ground.  Will be getting colder soon."

LOL! I love the idea of the leaf scenario and I WILL be using that!

Beautifully done!
Personally I love this style! Really shows off Big Mac's build and Applebloom's scrappiness.

Why is this not in my faves? I must fix!

Love the style you have here, its really unique and yet distinctly MLP. Show accurate art is a dime a dozen, I think its wonderful when artists apply their own style to their work :)
Don't let yourself be pressured into doing what the public wants. Just draw and be yourself. I cannot stand when people try to push me into drawing some specific way[when it's not a request, of course]. I personally like your style. A lot. It's very unique and creative, and it's refreshing to see something new every once in a while. Just draw, color, paint, whatever however you want and whenever you want. Art is about the author, not the audience. <3
