In the television series My Little Pony: Friendship in Magic, pegasus ponies are shown to have the ability to move clouds on several occasions and also demonstrate the ability to incite rain, as seen in the episode "Look Before You Sleep". I'm aware of the ability to cause the latter (through cloud seeding), though is the first claim - that to move clouds - even possible in real life through artificial means?

    What exactly are you asking? How it's done in the series or how it's done in real life? – JohnP Sep 4 '13 at 22:17

    I'm going to guess magic, since after all these are flying horses. – Alan Shutko Sep 4 '13 at 23:00

The clouds in My Little Pony: Friendship in Magic are cartoon clouds, so everything you know about how clouds work and react in the so called real life is unsuitable. The wind induced by their wings suffice to do the job.
