A brony is an adult fan (most often ages 18 - 34) of the children's cartoon My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and My Little Pony. Due to the presence of "bro" in the word, some maintain that the word brony only refers to male fans; others argue that it encompasses female fans as well.[1][2]. It remains a matter of personal choice. Nevertheless, the word "pegasister" is often used to refer to female fans in particular.[3] Many bronies create pony art, post fan videos on YouTube and contribute to threads on 4chan.

The term is a combination of "bro" and "pony."
