We don't know how it got there,
But your FLUTTERSHY had it!

"She had a snake for a pet
And an am-u-let
And she was breeding a DWARF!
But she wasn't done yet…"

Oh. I was unaware of this usage.

I'm the one in the wrong here, then. Sorry for the confusion.

The object of the verb "breed" can also refer to a creature the subject is going to impregnate, whether that be using themself or another intermediary animal as the stud.

The Merriam-Webster definition for the transitive verb version of Breed includes:

Definition 5-b: to mate with, inseminate

Other prominent dictionaries also include this usage of it.

The object of the verb "breed" is either the type of animal you keep a multiple of for reproduction purposes (i.e. "breeding ponies") or, for the animals themselves, the offspring they produce (i.e. "breeding a foal"). Since Fluttershy is singular and was already conceived and born, I'm inclined to believe Rainbow meant "breed with Fluttershy".
