Webster's Dictionary defines beards as a hairy or bristly appendage or tuft. That sounds a bit technical. Personally, I define a beard as a manifestation of awesome right there upon the face. Don't believe the shaving-companies lies! Bushwoolies are not in fact sentient beards that will grow from your face if you don't shave regularly. Bushwoolies are just a myth! Right?
The greatest heroes of our age have all had beards. They didn't call the greatest magic-wielding unicorn in history Starswirl the Clean Shaven, after all. No. Nor was he Starswirl the Stubbled. He was Starswirl the Bearded. Forever more shall his name be associated with the magnificence of his facial hair.
And you know who else will forever more be tied to magnificent facial hair? The ponies below, from the most stylish of mustache, to the burliest of beards. Right then, let's take a look at some ponies, (now with extra bristle).
Right, Night Flurry did the post, so I'mma do all the comments. Here goes! -Lunar
My first ever submission, so please go easy on it! It's just a poor, lost drawing.
Nothing to go easy on! That's some fine facial hair.

Something decidedly sinister is going on, here
Best Nightmare Night costume 2011. Also wow, that was two years ago. What
First thing I've ever submitted here. Let's see if I can keep motivated enough to make more and improve.
I hope you can! It'd be great to see more from you :)
Impressive! Gotta get some wax on that thing or something, though!
I knew there was something off about that pony!
Haha, this totally reminded me of doing this in the bath with bubbles.
brb, making bubble beard.
Sorry for my "long" absence from the previous wrap-ups. I had to catch up with my studies.
Studies come first! Twi has shown her support by not shaving, I see.
I imagine this guy being all "NO, NO, MOST IMPROPER, HARUMPH HARUMPH"
She is Twilight the Grey no longer. Now, she is Twilight the White.

I came up with the idea to make Hercules from Marvel Comics, and then decided to just go all out and do a parody of "The Champions", a 1970's Marvel Comic book. That's Herc in the center with the beard, then you got Ghost Rider, Angel, Black Widow, and Iceman. Based on the cover for the first issue of Champions.
I approve of your superheroes-made-ponies!
ZZ Carrot Top: Everypony's crazy 'bout a sharp-dressed mare!
