Great_White_Nope: We haven’t seen Latrine in awhile... he helps us explain the fluffy life-cycle in a “what if” scenario. Since he’s never going to see old age

Great_White_Nope: The ages are obviously best case scenario on a well-bred and taken care of fluffy

Fluffus: @Great_White_Nope: Thank you. Very informative!

Fluffus: This development chart is the closest one I’ve seen to the one in my head. The whole grown up fliffy in a month stuff always makes me think of stop motion, for some reason.

FluffiesAreFood: Good stuff! In my headcanon fluffies mature to adulthood faster than this (which is part of what makes them a great meat source), they are edible at any stage (including as fetuses), but are pretty much over the hill (with degrading meat quality) at five years old. As such, you almost never see a Gweat Ol Fwuff in my universe. Even the docile breeding mares and stallions go to skettiland before that happens.

Disintegral: Nice. The longer development time makes a bit more sense than the 4-6 weeks a lot of people use in their headcanons, especially since so many have fluffies with nutrient malabsorption problems. I'm not sure if I'd push adulthood back as far as a year, but definitely more than the standard.

Also, I always figured "foal" was one of those words that fluffies themselves never use, but to each their own headcanon.

Foal_Meta_Jacket: Pretty clear and sensical. Good thinking to add the caveat that these are developmental stages for well nourished and healthy floofs. Maybe someone will produce a timeline for contrast by outlining the life cycle of a poorly nourished / distressed fluffy.

One question though: you mention introducing a foal at age 7. Was that when the adult is 7, or the foal is 7 (and is the foal 7 weeks or months)? I’m not nit-picking, just looking for some clarification.

Great_White_Nope: @Foal_Meta_Jacket: introducing a Foal around age 7 and the adult should train and raise the foal so that they would have a similar temperament and personality, it’s a way for continued product use but also reduces the need for direct training as the product handles itself

Hugboxing_Faggot: You know, I'd like to see Latrine get out of the loft alive.

Crippled and broken, he ends up in a hugbox fluffy rescue station where he's being ostracized over his grotesque looks and trauma related behavior by humans and fluffies alike.

He tries to kill himself several times and ends up becoming a pathetic sack of fluff that's hooked up to crude, painful life support. He lives a long, depressing "life" and only flashbacks and nightmares keep him company while his body becomes more and more necrotic after passing even the grey fluff stage.

Guess that'd be an alternative to being beaten to death with his own legs, right?

Great_White_Nope: @Hugboxing_Faggot: maybe his fate is worse than death...

Hugboxing_Faggot: @Great_White_Nope: I guess my idea qualifies as "worse than death". I mean, he's literally being denied the sweet release of death and has to suffer longer than his natural lifespan would allow him.

takemitakemio: Mmm i feel like first stages are slorewer that the main canon for everyone.
Its life cycle would be loke rsbbits, cuz 6 months for a foal have no sense.
(Sry my engrish)

Great_White_Nope: @takemitakemio: a product that pushes too fast out of its cute “child phase” won’t be valued at all. If a buyer knows he has 6 months to move a product he would actually have a chance on getting it out the door versus something like 2-3 months
