Character: big mcintosh
Big McIntosh is an earth_pony, the older brother of Applejack and Applebloom, and the grandson of Granny_Smith. He is red in color, with an orange mane and tail and his cutie_mark is a green apple sliced in half. He alway wears a wooden yoke, and has been seen using it to pull a plow. He lives on Sweet Apple Acres with his sisters and grandmother.
Big McIntosh is very calm, almost subdued, and is usually depicted with his eyes half-shut. He rarely speaks, and often responds to questions with a simple "eeyup" or "nope."
He has a noticeably bulkier build than most of the other characters, and his design seems to be based on a draft horse. Partly because of this, he is usually considered by fans to be extremely strong; in episode 3 of Season 2, "Lesson_Zero," Big McIntosh freed himself from a pile of dozens of other ponies by literally flinging them away in all directions.
The spelling of his name is based on an apple variety called McIntosh, and has been confirmed by Lauren Faust. However, he is often known as Big Macintosh, and this is the name that appears on the toy produced by Hasbro.
