Pony News, Views and Attitudes -- Vol. 2 Number 5 -- August 11-17, 2008 PAGE 4


Dear Lulu,
Hi! Me and Samson are doing great! I've been doing ground work with him. I taught him to weave in and out of buckets! I'm going to teach him how to lunge. Can you help me? Everytime I try he thinks I'm just leading him. LOL (lot's of love)

Dear Pony Pal Sarah
Ground work with Samson sounds really good. The more you can do with him on the ground, the better he will eventually be under saddle. Samson is so lucky to have you to care for him and help train him. I told Mrs. Crandal about your letter and she asked if you found a trainer yet? They could help you learn to lunge Samson. And how is your Mom doing?
Pony Pals,

Hi lulu
I have a white pony too. My name is Delaney. My pony's name is Blondie I have short hair too. How is your dad how is Anna and Pam? I wish I had a barn my pony stays at my trainers barn. what are you doing on Wednesday? give snow white a kiss for me. Does snow White like hay cubes? Blondie loves to eat them! it’s a favorite treat after we are done riding.
Please write back!
Love, Delaney

Dear Pony Pal Delaney
Blondie is so cute. She does look a little like Snow White. Snow White eats hay and oats mostly. Here we don't feed hay cubes as much.
Having your pony at your house is fun, but it is work, too. We have to clean up the paddock and feed our ponies twice a day, every day, even in winter or when its raining outside.
On Wednesday Pam, Anna and I all went for a long trail ride to our secret hideout. We tied up our ponies, then we took a leafy branch and swept out all the leaves and twigs.
Then we took out a waterproof tarp, spread it out and sat down and ate sandwiches, drank juice and talked about what we want to do before the end of the summer. It was really fun.
I kissed Snow White right behind her left ear, and told her it was from you. Thanks for writing,

Dear Lulu,
I know you hate having your grandma do your hair, but one good thing about having your grandmother as a barber you don't have to pay to get your hair cut.
Sincerely, Cayce

Dear Pony Pal Cayce,
Having a grandma who does hair means that I don't have to pay but also I have to wait until she has time. My hair is pretty long right now, I want to have it cut shorter so it gets out of my eyes and off my shoulders. Grandma promises she will give me a new haircut before school starts. She is still really busy from the Florida story. I guess her customers want her to stay here so they are all making sure she has lots of work!
Pony Pals,


Dear Lulu,
How's Snow White doing? She sounds like such a smart pony and she must be a joy to ride! You're soooo lucky to have a pony!!! I wish I had a pony.
How do you like it in Wiggins? It must be very interesting to live around so many horses and ponys.

Dear Pony Pal Jeanne
Thanks for writing! Yes it is really fun to have Snow White and she is very smart. Lately when I want to clean her feet I just have to say the word "foot" and she picks it up for me.
Wiggins is fun mostly. I don't like the mall much, it’s a long drive and then there's too many people there. I like being outside and most stuff we want for ponies is sold right here in town at Kline's, Green Market or Folgers Feed.
It is great to be able to ride around town and visit all of our friends. Everyone is happy to see us and most people want to know what we're up to and how we're doing. Riding is a great way to meet your neighbors.
Mrs. Crandal says to sign up as a tester for the game and pretty soon you'll be able to have your own online pony. Then we can ride together in the game.
Your Pony Pal,
