No, I mean the My Little Dashie level stories of sad. My heart is too strong for that. Sure, it did hit me right in the feels, but it wasn't very strong. Every sad story I've read, I couldn't cry, even if I wanted to.
I can actually imagine humans being really cuddly for ponies.
We find animals' fur to be soft and warn; they probably would like our skin because it's smooth, no fur running on fur, and it may be cool to the touch. That, and we're practically designed to hug things if you haven't noticed.
Now that's a challenge I got myself into: trying to find my best pony!
That's a dilemma, it's like asking Fluttershy who's her best friend, she'll never answer, she'll excuse herself at every possible answer. Although, I think in the show it's hinted that her best friend among the group is actually Rarity.
I'll to meditate on that enigma: who's my best pony? Time will tell I hope.
In my opinion, there is no such thing as right or wrong in such cases. Think food. As a child, you might like a certain food, but as you grow, you find yourself not liking it as much, and vice versa. There might come a day when I decided to work with animals, and I relate to Fluttershy more then, or I might find myself planting my own fruits, and Applejack becomes my fav instead.
I went to the movie theatres to see Equestria Girls with my best friend, she had never ever seen nothing related to the show either, but one look at Fluttershy in her human form was more than enough to become a pegasister and make Flutters her best pony in one second! I couldn't believe what my eyes were showing me, one look at ecokid Fluttershy and she made her her best pony!!!
Well, since I've no magic or flying skills either, and since I'm not good at making jokes I think I might related myself with Applejack, a simple earth pony but a really hard working one indeed.
