I like to think of Rainbow as nearly like Firefly in every way, personality wise (which she already is) -- the only difference is Firefly's a little more comfortable in her own horseshoes. She is bold and rebellious and doesn't give a crap what others think of her. Before Rainbow took the title, she was considered the best flier in Equestria and could have easily been a Wonderbolt. But her distaste for rules and restrictions blew that opportunity away. She knows she's the best and doesn't feel like she has to be part of a flying team to prove it. She just prefers showing off her skills in the company of her loved ones, giving her all the time in the world to train her little Rainbow in all her techniques! We all know how heartened Rainbow is on "looking cool" to others, so she doesn't always understand her mother in that respect -- why she would pass up the opportunity to be a Wonderbolt is BEYOND HER! But, that gives them more time to spend together. She supports her daughter in all her endeavors and knows exactly when to give her a push in the rare times when Rainbow finds herself nervous of judgement.
As for Dash's daddy --
Woo, look at all that writin'! Might as well quit while I got nothin' more to say at the moment. Anyway, enjoy the Dash Family!

when I saw daring don't. Daring do or A.K. Yearling actually look like RD and I thought for myself is she her mother. Just look at her hair same shape and her eyes are the same. Its just my idea.
But your idea is good to^^
tis so cute
So, Rainbow Dash lives in this huge, fancy, high-end place, as we see in both Daring Do related episodes. There's no way she could live in that place on her current position as head weather pony, and she certainly could not afford to go to Wonderbolt basic training. Even if it's a shared, leased residence, the obvious conclusion is that Rainbow's parents are loaded and paying for her living condition. So, My question is what exactly are Rainbow Dash's parent's jobs? Firefly probably manages the Wonderbolts, while RD's dad is probably a highly decorated retired palace guard. What do you think?
Awesome pic, by the way.
