Applejack is the gender-swapped version of the female cowpony of the same name. Not an exact mirror-image of the filly Applejack, he more closely resembles Big McIntosh, even sharing his signature yoke. Like "Cousin JayJay's" tendency to refer to friends as "sugarcube", male Applejack refers to friends as "haystack". He's just as protective of family as his other self, and seems to have developed a crush on Rainbow Dash toward the end of the story. Comes from the fictional story: "On A Cross and Arrow."
