I Now Pronounce You... by DigitalDasherBot I Now Pronounce You... by DigitalDasherBot
Didn't anypony else find that part of the ceremony weird? I thought it was weird. It should have been "mare and stallion", right?

Foal - a young horse not yet one year of age.
Filly - a young female horse.
Colt - a young male horse of not more than four years of age.
Mare - a fully mature female horse.
Stallion - an adult male horse.
(Edit: This is just via a dictionary. For the show's usage, just filly/colt for young ponies and mare/stallion for decidedly older ponies is probably closer. If she had said "filly and colt" I probably wouldn't have thought twice about it. It just seemed weird when it mixed the age groups for that particular phrase.)

Just another quick comic I wanted to get out of my head before I go out of town for a week. Honestly, I could probably do royal wedding comics all summer and not run out of material, but I have to draw the line somewhere, right?

...maybe just one or two more.

I just thought that "Mare and Colt" was used because it had the same number of syllables as "Man and Wife"

Actually, you got the horse stuff pretty much spot on. Shining would only  be a colt if he was younger than five years old.

This show did teach me something: for a while I always thought mares and stallions were breeds of horses.

Well, we see the same terminology elsewhere. Celestia addressed the whole crowd as "Mares and gentlecolts".
