Pony Thought of the Day: Pigs. Again with the Pigs.

So I’ve got class issues in Equestria on my mind for various reasons, and I’m watching “Sisterhooves Social,” and I notice something: basically all hooved mammals in Equestria can talk, right? I mean, we’ve seen ponies, sheep, donkeys, and mules speak–it’s reasonable to assume pigs can, too, right?

So what’s up with the Apples gathering up the bruised apples to give to the pigs? Isn’t that kind of an awful thing to do to a sentient being?

And then you put on top of that the way they treat the sheep in that episode… is Applejack a racist speciesist?
