Foal Milestones (Important Community Ruling)

Postby Variety » Tue Aug 21, 2012 11:49 am

Okay Ponies, it's time to have a little rundown on foals.
Milestones for foals are as follows.



  • Pregnancy is minimum 3 months real time since first signs of pregnancy IC. You can make it longer if you like.
  • 3 weeks to two months, flight and magic overloads. Except in rare case where they happen earlier or later.
  • 4 to six months, is the age when foals begin talking, again except in rare cases.
  • One year and beyond, they reach school age. If they are NOT a year old when school rolls around, they have to wait till next semester.

    If you want a foal to go to school before that? Contact us, make a convincing case for it, if your child is precocious, home school them.

    Additionally, you will need to get somepony (other than the parents) to agree to take the reins of your foal before they are of playable age.

    If you don't think that will happen, don't do a pregnancy.

How old til they start walking?

And how old till first words (but not proper speech)?

If those things have been decided, anyway.

Applejack was able to speak clearly (and adorably!) while still in diapers.

The Baby Cakes said their first words just a month after birth.

SOME baby Pegasi can fly within a month after birth. Others take longer to develop strong flying skills (Scootaloo, Fluttershy).

Baby unicorns have random but controllable bursts of magic.

Right now, those are just about the only developmental milestones we know from the show.

Just saw this was edited in when i came back to re-check.Thought it was worth noting for anypony who may not have seen the change, because when I asked about it last August, Mayday told me this was not a rule.

Since it is, now, apparently, everybody look. *points*

This isn't official....
But natural horses and ponies begin walking a couple minutes to an hour after birth- I think that MlP ponies should have a similar thing but maybe not until a few days after birth. Maybe2-6 days after birth, unless they are special.

Speaking formal words comes before school and after the magic surges, so (again, unless a special case) they begin speaking words at 6-7 months and are fluent by 8-10 months.

You'd have to get a proper mod/admin reply to be sure, but I think the above guidelines make sense if nothing else.

Yeah I didn't realize, when I asked that, that the Cake kids were walking in their first appearance.
