This is pretty much my accepted headcanon too. Makes you wonder if Flim and Flam don't collect the stuff and sell it back to Apple Jack, and Carrot Top (a.k.a. Golden Harvest), for a nice little profit?

But why would they need to? Why not just lift the toilet paper with magic and wipe themselves with a few sheets?

Then again, this poses a problem for other races. How do they wipe without longer forelegs?

Who am I a kidding? Unicorns have the easy life when it comes to tasks that require hoof-eye coordination and grip. They just use magic. I know that hooves are suspected to act almost like suction cups in the sense of creating a vacuum seal around the object, but lets be honest here, You cannot create an effective vacuum seal with toilet paper. A few sheets, no less.

… I can totally see unicorns using their horns as toilet paper racks though.

Not all the way off. You would actually need to straddle it like a horse. What I mean by this is having your feet go back while you sit. Your pants are still around your ankles, just like when you sit on it the illogical way.

Oh, and there's always the balancing act for this whole sort of thing. For this position, how illogical it may be, let's assume Twilight just needed to go badly. For her to be able to go AND not make a mess, she would have to do her business similar to a female dog's way of doing their business. Her front hooves would be on the front of the seat, standing, while her hind legs would be much like they are now, except with a little less slouching. With this position, given that her body is pulled up more so now her plot faces directly into the bowl, her tail can drape nicely over the side of the toilet. Oh, and there would be no mess, unless she had the runs. Then there could be a mess.

[spoilers]Of course, this would all be for the photographer to do next time. It just makes more sense.[/spoilers]

It's like that episode of South Park. I mean, it really gets you thinking, "Have I been using the toilet wrong?" Sitting on it the other way is, oddly enough, a more logical way of doing your business.

The only plausible thing she could be doing is a little tinkle, you know? Because, let's say for a moment that she drank a couple red bulls, is waiting for her wings, and now has to piss [insert race horse simile here]. I don't know about you guys and gals, but it's not a steady, small stream at that point. The angle at which her genitals are to the bowl of the toilet would cause a big mess unless she has to barely go and is doing it out of possible irritation. Maybe her bladder is acting up?

Now I have an idea for a story in which ponies have small bladders and have to constantly go. Think of how it would rewrite the cannon story!
