He's actually a stallion. A Colt would be a boy version of a pony, and a Stallion would the man version of a pony, but he does look younger in this image.

Not even left-handed people are allowed to salute with their left hand.  Maybe that rule doesn't apply to hooves though.

It's going in my desktop rotation.

As a small critique, however, saluting with the left hoof is permissible only when the right hoof is disabled or rendered immobile due to injury, per Equestrian Royal Guard Order p5060.20

I gotta admit, this is actually pretty cool! But I wonder-- do ponies salute with their left hoof or their right? I'm just curious.

No worries. I was just having fun. It's actually from Marine Corps Order p5060.20, which actually does address the issue of saluting with the left hand.

As an interesting side note, this exception only exists for the United States Navy and Marine Corps. The US Army and Air Force are prohibited from saluting with the left hand entirely. I can't speak for the military of any other countries...

There is also a informal exception for soldiers who are holding open a car door for a ranking flag officer (Generals and Admarials), but it's not actually in the order.

Slightly to the left of the third star to the right, but not so much that you actually reach morning.

"A cocker spaniel, I believe. It was expertly roasted and served with potatoes lightly sautéed in a fine glaze of --"

I sense I may have said too much... "Stop looking at me like that. I had to do something with it after it got stuck in my fender! Besides, the sparrow it was chasing only had enough meat for an appetizer."


PS. For all you animal lovers out there, THIS IS A JOKE! I would never be that heartless.

Wow! I love that this is traditionally painted. Sometimes there's no substitute for the true brush-stroke look in the finished product. You managed so well to marry a "classic" style with a cartoon style. I love how this turned out.
