It had been about five years since घास Hopper had brought the little filly घर with him. He took her back to the town he found her in to see if there was anypony she belonged to. However, none of the ponies in the town seemed to know her, but were और surprised to see a टट्टू with horns and wings. घास Hopper went across Equestria again, but, still, no टट्टू was the parent to the little filly. घास Hopper decided that it would be best if he adopted the little filly. He and Sunflower didn't have children, so, it was as if their wishes came true. So, घास Hopper named the little filly Snowball. As Snowball grew up, she was finally old enough to start her first साल of school.
Snowball walked into the school house, only to be looked upon द्वारा the many fillies and colts. The teacher walked in and कहा "Okay, settle down my little..."
She stopped, noticing the silence of the class.
"Okay then" She said, "So, we have a new student today. Her name is Snowball". Snowball stood in front of the class. Their was an uncomfortable silence around the room. The whole rest of the दिन was a real wreck. Snowball always saw that she was being watched द्वारा everypony, even the teacher.
Once school ended, Snowball was walking घर when a filly stood in front of her. She was a small red filly, leading a group of other brightly colored ponies.
She said, "Hey, new kid. We noticed your horns and wings. What are you. Did the gods of Equestria have a वाद-विवाद when making आप and this is what came out of it"? Soon, the whole टट्टू posse was laughing. The filly then knocked Snowballs पुस्तकें off her back and कहा sarcastically "Oops". There was a shrill of laughter. Snowball was starting to get scared.
Suddenly, a voice said, "Hey, आप leave her alone". Snowball then saw a small yellow बछेड़ा looking angrily at the ponies. The filly said, "Come on, girls, lets go. We should let the school freak दिखाना practice".
They then walked away laughing.
The young बछेड़ा said, "You okay?" Snowball shook her head. The बछेड़ा said, "Don't mind Setting Sun. She's like that to all new kids. I'm Blazin' द्वारा the way" he कहा as he extended a hoof.
Snowball shook Blazin's hoof and said, "I-I'm Snowball". She कहा this with a smile.
And soon, Blazin' became the greatest friend that Snowball ever had
