I've looked for this but I haven't found it. If there's already a thread that talks about this, then please point it out.
I half want to know this for a fan fiction I'm writing but mostly out of curiosity. How long do ponies live in the MLP universe?
I tried using Apple Family Reunion as a reference. But there are so many unknowns, like if 100 moons mean lunar cycles or if there's some other meaning behind the word. Also, even if it does mean lunar cycles, there's never been much reference to how the moon works beyond Luna does it. So maybe there's only four lunar cycles in a year, or even three in a month. Although, considering the last Apple family reunion was when Apple Jack was a baby, I doubt it's that often. Even then, even if I did know how often the reunions happen, or even exactly how many family reunions have happened, at best I would be able to get a general idea of how old Granny Smith is, who is still alive (at around age 50 if their lunar cycles are the same as ours, which means they do not age the same way horses and ponies age in our universe).
So I've hit a dead end with that. So I was wondering if anyone else has any theories about the lifespan of the MLP ponies.
Also, I wonder if there's any age difference between unicorns, pegasus and Earth Ponies. I know there's a major age difference between the alicorns and the other ponies, but I wonder what kind of age differences there are between the different types of ponies.
