Randy is a young male white-tailed deer fawn that used to live in Crittervana but moved to Ponyville with his parents for sightseeing, but then found out that they couldn’t pay rent for their old home and have been evicted. They are now currently living in a cottage in Ponyville and are always welcoming to the new pony neighbors. He is voiced by Cole Sprouse.
Randy is shown to be friendly and likable kind of deer and he likes to help his closest friends in times of and despite being a deer, is surprisingly assertive. He and his race are shown to have knowledge over the Everfree Forest and it comes in handy when they help his friends
Despite his assertiveness, he can be shy around cute and pretty girls of his as well as several species, at least until he gets used to them. And it is shown to be a bit sensitive and his feelings can get hurt, especially when he hears the others using the word “buck” in a very vulgar way. It is later found out that all deer are affected by the usage of the word, not just Randy.
He is a light tangerine white-tailed deer that is the size and height of a pony foal with a blond top knot. He has a light sherbert colored face, underbelly and tail underside. He even has dark carrot spots which will probably disappear when he grows to be an older buck.
His head resembles male colts and fillies, with the exception of the black nose and the larger ears.
He even has cloven hooves, curtsey of odd toed ruminants.
Despite being young, Randy can run and jump as fast as a full grown stallion since he has long and nimble legs. He even his sharp eyesight and hearing and can feel his friends or foes presence by feeling their movements by the vibrations under his hooves.
