You asked about the Friendship is magic names being recycled from G1.
I think the wikia page on Applejack explains that pretty well!
mlp.wikia.com/wiki/Applejack
'Applejack is one of the only two members of the main cast who were part of the original My Little Pony cast in the 1980s animated series, the other member being Spike. While Lauren Faust, the show's developer, intended to use more characters from the first My Little Pony series, Hasbro did not maintain the trademarks to nearly all of the original character names and most names had to be replaced.'

Here's a photo of my two new ponies.
They're Raincurl, and Spunky the camel.
I've already started fixing Raincurl's hair. She needs a good clean though and both of her ears are chipped. Spunky could also do with a clean but isn't as bad.



And after two hours of scrubbing, shampooing and conditioning, Raincurl is now relaxing with 'curlers' in her mane and tail.





And Spunky's tail and mane are all soft a fluffy now.

Aw, she's so cute now! She got curls just from sitting there with curlers? Mine don't do that.

I uploaded some of the new Mermaid Fillies to the gallery. :)

I also uploaded some photos of a different horse line I have. It's called Enchanted Kingdom.
Maybe you like them. Still digging for a few missing items, then I'll take pics of the other 5 or 6 horses I own too. I even have some foals but they lost their manes and tails. Will still show them just for the horror of it and maybe I'll try to fix them later.

The hair has to be put in the curlers while damp, and preferably straight after conditioning. She just sat over night like it. =)
Regular human hair conditioner works fine. I had to use some of mum's 'cause mine's been mixed with various hair dye conditioners and other things so I have no idea what they'd do to pony hair. XD

And after having a look at the EK horses. Maybe their hair would improve condition if washed and conditioned. Obviously that's only really doable if you wanna spend the time. But at the same time, I think they look quite cute as they are. =)

Haven't uploaded my favourite EK horse Nina yet. ^,^ She's so cute and the only one that doesn't have that hard hair.
I don't know if that hair can take heat, to be honest. >.> The only way I ever did curls was to wash the hair and braid it for a while. *gg* I do use conditioner on Pullip wigs to make them smoother though, so since I already have it it might be worth a try. Might definitely be worth a try on those MLP baby ponies, most of them look like they weathered a storm. ;D (Hey, don't look at me, they always looked like that!)

I didn't come around to upload the missing Filly Mermaids but here's a group piccie for you! I'll use the other group piccie for the gallery, he he.
My favourites are both Fillies with yellow fins and the green one on the right. ^^ Of course Princess Pearlia is the one with the striped tail and the pearl in her crown. She's the rare Filly.

Aww, they're all so cute!

Yeah. Older dolls hair I wouldn't trust anywhere near my curler or straightener.
Braiding while wet is fine if you want that sort of crinkly look, but using the straw and bobbie pin/hair grip technique you can get some real curls and stuff. =D

I'll see if I can get some cheap small curlers at the supermarket.

Today I uploaded all the rest of the Filly Mermaids, including the promo Fillies! ^^
I wish they had made that a full series with 21-22 Fillies and not just a half one with 11. There's still so many unexplored colour schemes!

The tutorial I used said the foam ones are best. Although I can't say, I've only ever used the straw technique. I need to try and get some smaller straws so I can do Pinkie Pie's hair... She has WILD hair, so that'll need patience more than anything else. XD
*goes to stare at Fillies*

I've got a small treat for you - don't know if I'll add them to the gallery since they're so tiny.
I bought these many years ago and can barely remember anything about them except that they are true MLP products and that I got them from a sales bin. They have a hole in their base and I dimly remember there was a castle with parts that moved if a pony was put on it and turned around.

They sit on the shelves in Yuki's room and are just the perfect size for a doll room. ^^ Please excuse the other clutter.
