This mod adds new player models and textures that make players look like ponies, in the style of the TV show “My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic”. Once the mod is installed, you and all other players will look like ponies in both singleplayer and multiplayer. Players who aren’t using a special pony skin will look like one of the background ponies from the show (as the default player skins are not fully compatible with this mod).

Pony skins are backwards-compatible with the original player model, so they look fine to any player who doesn’t have the mod installed (those players just won’t see the pony models). You can be an earth pony, a pegasus, a unicorn or an alicorn. Pegasus ponies flap their wings when flying, and unicorns hold items in the air in front of them as if by magic.

What’s new in
I haven’t updated any of the skinning guide pictures yet to explain any of the new stuff, I figured it was better to do the release first. Go read the skinning guide if you want to know how to activate the new stuff.

Works with Minecraft 1.3.1 – Finally you can be a pony in the latest version of Minecraft. I also made a version with all the other new features for 1.2.5 so anyone still running an older version doesn’t have to miss out on the new features.

Ponies of all shapes and sizes! - Now in addition to the normal sized pony you can be an elegant alicorn, a strong draft horse like Big Macintosh, or a little foal! Use of the different models is triggered by a special pixel, please read the skinning section for more information. Take a look at all the different ponies!

Foals are adorable:

New pony armour! – Now the ponies have custom armour (rather than trying to re-use the Minecraft human armour). It looks way better! Huge thanks to ShetiPhian for the new armour code and Fruzstrated for the default armour textures.

You can include pony armour in your texture packs! Check out the new Love and Tolerance texture pack that includes some new custom pony armour:

New config style! – Now the config is stored in mods/MineLittlePony/ (rather than saved in the zip file or jar). It is generated automatically if the file doesn’t exist, so mod installation is simpler. See the section about the config file for more information.

Ooodles and oodles of new and updated ponies! – You simply have no idea. Okay, I’ll give you an idea.

Big thanks to everyone who contributed skins to this release, I love you!!!

More compatible - Added compatibility with forge and modloader where it was previously broken (e.g. support for new armour and items). Tested and working with IC2, Mine Little Brony, etc. (in 1.2.5 anyway, all bets are off for 1.3.1). Refactored modloader version to conflict with less stuff. As usual, huge thanks to BlueAgent for his ingenious work on compatibility.

Bugs with advanced skinning technique fixed – The advanced technique incorrectly displayed the back and belly of the pony textures flipped (compared to what you’d expect and how they were displayed on the default model) in previous mod versions. It also took the texture for the unicorn horn from the wrong place (using part of the head texture) so that’s now fixed too. I also fixed the bug where the underside of the pony was rendered too bright in some lighting conditions.

Code refactored, cleaned up, and released – Hopefully that will make it easier for contributors to add stuff withour relying on a lazy bum like me to do anything. I have a private group for contributors (PM me to be added if you’d like to contribute, use the models, steal other code, etc).

Old models removed – Hardly anyone was using the older models (the ones without the necks and snuzzles) and they were annoying to maintain so they’ve been removed.




  • 1.3.1 – Compatibility with Minecraft 1.3.1. Massive refactoring. Lots of new compatibility stuff. New pony armour.

Installation instructions:

Normal version

Back up your original minecraft.jar before you install this mod! Otherwise you won’t be able to remove this mod without re-installing Minecraft.

Download the zip file containing the new class files and background pony skins needed by the mod. Extract the classes (.class), text file (.txt) and skins (.png) from the zip file. You will need to copy the new classes and the text file into the root of the original minecraft.jar, and the new skins into the “mob” folder of the original minecraft.jar.


  • 1) Open up %appdata%, if you don’t know how to do this, start>run, then type in %appdata%
  • 2) Browse to .minecraft/bin
  • 3) Make a backup (copy) of your minecraft.jar as this mod will overwrite some of the original minecraft classes.
  • 4) Open up minecraft.jar with WinRAR or 7zip.
  • 5) Drag and drop the necessary class files and text file into the root (top level) folder of the jar.
  • 6) Drag and drop the necessary png files into the “mob” folder of the jar.
  • 7) Delete the META-INF folder in the jar.


  • 1) Make a backup (copy) of your original minecraft.jar file (which you can find in ~/Library/Application\ Support/minecraft/bin/minecraft.jar) as this mod will overwrite some of the original minecraft classes.
  • 2) Go to Applications>Utilities and open terminal.
  • 3) Type in the following, line by line:
cd ~
mkdir mctmp
cd mctmp
jar xf ~/Library/Application\ Support/minecraft/bin/minecraft.jar
  • 4) Outside of terminal, copy all the class files and the text file into the mctmp directory.
  • 5) Still outside of terminal, copy all the png files into the mctmp/mob directory.
  • 6) Back inside terminal, type in the following:
jar uf ~/Library/Application\ Support/minecraft/bin/minecraft.jar ./
cd ..
rm -rf mctmp

ModLoader version:

  • 1) Install ModLoader for Minecraft 1.3.1
  • 2) Download the zip file of the version of this mod for Modloader, and put it in your mods folder (found in %appdata%.minecraft/mods on Windows, or ~/Library/Application\ Support/minecraft/mods if you are on a Mac) .

Now the mod is installed, you will need to change your skin to a special “Mine Little Pony compatible” skin otherwise you will look like one of the background ponies yourself. There are some example skins in the “Download” section of this post, and a tutorial about how to create your own skins in the “Skinning” section.

Once you have the mod installed, run Minecraft and switch to the third-person view (F5) to see yourself as a pony!

Mine Little Pony Mod v1.3.1.1

Mine Little Pony Skins:

Mine Little Pony skins (mediafire download)

Mine Little Pony skins (direct download)

The skins zip file contains skins for all of the mane 6 ponies and other ponies that star in the show in addition to copies of the background pony skins used in the mod. To use a particular pony skin on yourself you will have to change your player skin using your profile on in the usual way.

Please tag compatible skins on skin sites by putting “MineLP” in their name to make them easier to find if you upload them to skin sites.
