We should have a few minigames for "My Club Pony Pals" It would be fun, people can write to pen pals, send movies, rate and comment them (If you have a Pony Pals account) Comment and rate pictures, Gabby's letters. Sounds like fun.



Dear Pony Pal Summer

OK, sounds good to the Wiggins Weekly staff. Can you send Quicktime or other digital videos?  Federal COPPA regulations say that no personal information about you can be on them. But you can sign them  "Summer" and everyone will know that you made them. We think that would be totally cool. And COPPA says that ClubPonyPals members can’t contact each other directly. But we can have moderated forums like this one. We may start a different setup if mail keeps growing! And we really like your digital art. It has lots of pony spirit.






Sorry I haven't wrote in awhile I was busy with my movies. If you want to see them you should go to



Its really neat you should find a shocker in there to. I'm making a video about the three of you and your ponies. Oh yeah My b-day is on the ninth of December. My aunt thought it was the second lol.  Oh yeah I almost forgot,   MERRY CHRISTMAS LULU. PAM, AND ANN

Horses Rule


Dear HorsesRule

Who is the singer and what is the song's name for the music that plays during the video. Your video is great!  If you send a video that does not have any of your personal contact information on it, we will probably post a linkit.  Videos about ponies and pony pals would be great.





Dear Anna: How\'s Acorn? Please give his a hug from me. what do you want for Christmas? Happy Holidays, Pony Pals! Summer F.

Gabby's Column
What are all the foods a pony can eat?

 Well, There are a lot of things ponies can eat. Ponies eat a variety of fruits and veggies such as carrots and apples. Also ponies have special horse pellets and grains. They can eat all kinds of foods. A few things they shouldn't have are baked goods like cakes and cookies. Horse cookies however are very good for ponies. Those are made of things like alfalfa, which is a type of hay. Also ponies shouldn't have any candy like chocolate or hard candy of any kind. A few sweet tarts candy never hurt any pony but don't give them more than 3.

Pound for pound, which is stronger?

  • Draft horse
  • Regular size horse
  • Pony
  • Miniature horse

Draft horses are very strong. Draft horses are very heavy and were bred to pull heavy things. I don't thing it's very wise to get in the way of one. If a draft horse steps on you...... Ow.

Horses would be next. They are bigger than ponies so they weigh more. Also can pull a little more than ponies.

Next would be ponies. Ponies are very strong in muscle and in mind. Ponies can pull lots of heavy things. They have strong mind and some people think ponies are smarter than horses. Who Knew?

Finally would be Mini Horses. Let's just face it. These small guys are about the size of dogs and in modern times aren't really good for anything but walking around on a leash. However back in the day Mini Horses used to pull carts in the coal mines. They were small enough to fit in all the small tunnels. Also Mini Horses are being trained to guide the blind. Very smart loyal pets. But, pound for pound strength they are at the bottom.



Gabby says "I would like to ask that readers send me questions by Wednesday." Gabby will answer any questions about horses that she can. Send in your question to her care of the WebMaster

The story continues..

Read the entire story at:

The Pony Pals had just completed freeing a herd of wild mustangs.  They were cleaning up the twine and string, putting it in their saddle bags when suddenly someone shouted "Stop!" They all turned and saw a man who looked just like Lulu's father. Lulu was very angry with her dad, she jumped on Snow White and galloped away. ..

Last week Pam C. wrote:

Lulu was scared. Why would her father do that? He loves animals. Lulu slowed Snow White and began to walk. She had to think.

What would make her father want to tangle animals in the twine? And why was he in Wiggins? He was weeks early. She suddenly stopped her pony.

"Snow White, that is not my father!" Lulu yelled. "That's... "


Leslie writes...

"That is a robber!" ...


Jane C writes:

"…or some person who doesn't care about animals."


''Let's go Snow White'' cried Lulu. And they galloped off. Then ........


Simone writes....

… Suddenly there was a whisper from behind her. She could just make out some of the words: “… If we… we can…capture… No one… knows…”  suddenly another voice came in. “No! If we capture her and her pony we’ll be arrested.” Lulu ran for it. …. and…


Summer  writes....


…. Snow White suddenly pricked up her ears. "Lulu?" "Yes girl?" "I have a funny feeling we're going to..."


But at that moment, they both were falling,,falling...FALLING! They were falling into a deep ditch. Lulu held unto the reins tight.

"Help!" they both screamed. "Help! Summer, Hugo, Piddles, Lightning, Pam, Sunshine, Acorn, Anna, Picasso! HELP!"


Lulu grabbed hold of a root. She knew this was a life and death grasp. "HELP!" Meanwhile, the girls, Mr. Sanders, and their ponies, and Picasso, were running as fast as they could.


 "Because you are killing Mustangs," Anna muttered, "Lulu is lost here! She could be dead by now!"


"Anna," Mr. Sander's said, "I wasn't killing horses." All the ponies jerked to a stop.


"You weren't?!" cried Pam.


"Then what were you doing?" asked Summer.


"I was tying up the horses, so I could take them to Wiggins, and study them. In fact. I was planning to keep some."


The girls looked upset.


 "We're sorry. We jumped to conclusions," said Sunshine.


"No need" Eye-High suddenly jerked his head up, as the sound of Snow White's frightened neighs for help. "Hey! Listen!"


Picasso Lifted his ears. "I hear it, too!"


 "Snow White!" cried Acorn, as he galloped like he was being chased by a monster.


 "Stop!" Lulu cried, as Acorn was about to take a false move to death to the ditch.


"Snow White!" Acorn cried teary. Snow White nuzzled Acorn. Acorn whinnied like it was the end of the world.


"Anna!" cried Lulu. As everybody else went to help


Lulu, Eye-High, got a rope from the saddlebag. Picasso, and Mr. Sanders. went to Snow White. Mr. Sander's tied to rope, and Eye-High carefully let it down. Snow White saw the noose..."

Pony Pals Thoughts  for the Day

You can never have too many hoof picks.


It is not wise to argue with something that outweighs you by 800 pounds.


I'd rather have a horse with a perfect mind then a perfect head.
