ClubPonyPals has another NEW contest: "This Month's Best YouTube Video about ClubPonyPals." Each month we will award 500 Wiggins Bucks to the player who posts the best video about our club. YouTube is a site that has all kinds of content on it and you will need your parents permission to go there. Please make sure and ask your parents!! If you do get permission, you can go to YouTube and search for Club Pony Pals. There are two videos already there. They are automatically entered! Be creative!

This week's high scoring players or math games got 100 Wiggins bucks, the next nine high scoring players got 50 bucks each.   Start solving those math mini games in Pam's game collection in Crandal's barn loft.

Our weekly jigsaw art contest is still going. Each week, the winner gets 100 Wiggins Bucks, a bumper sticker and a bookmark that is redeemable for some virtual pony treats on the sign in page where it says "coupon code."

P.S. We are looking for new members. If you have a friend you think might like our Club, please tell them to sign up and try it. The only way we can keep our site free is if we get lots of new members.

Dear Club Pony Pals,
The picture I sent in that had two footprints and two hoofprints on the beach was mine. It said wherever a girl leaves a footprint there is a hoofprint right beside it. I worked really hard on it and I made up the quote. I forgot to put my username on it! Love, lacey12 & lacey

Dear lacey12, Never fear, the postal service delivered your drawing's letter about 12 days after it was mailed. The front of that letter showed it had been mis-delivered to a P. O. Box in Ft. Meyers, Florida. I think it took a vacation on the way to the Weekly! WebMaster

Hi, Anna, Lulu and Pam! I just love Club pony pals! I told my friend about it and she joined up! My two friends and i are like the Pony Pals! I am like Pam, I have the tallest horse, have been riding the longest, and are the most experienced. My friend, who joined, is like Anna, she has a mischevious horse, like acorn. My other friend, doesn't have a horse of her own, like Lulu before she actually bought Snowhite, she rides my old pony, who is also white! We call ourselves the Pony pals too! Unfortunatley, we don't get to go riding together as three, our houses are within riding distance, but you have to go along a couple of mainroads with busy traffic to get there.   From 17kipp & Ricky


raennior49 & Serena writes

Dear Mrs. Crandal, I hear that a lot of people have amazing, unseperable bonds with their equine companion. I really want that bond with my horse, but it just isn't 'clicking.' I've heard of something called 'joining up' but I don't know if that would work or not, or if you know what that is, but I'm assuming you may do because you are so knowledgable about horses. I've tried so much. I would just sit with my horse and talk to her, but nothing's happening. What should I do! -r&S

Jane Crandal responds

Dear raennior To "join up" with your horse, you need to learn a little about how to speak equine. Horses have only two questions -- "Who's the boss?" and "Where are we going?" If the answer to the first one is not you, then you don't get to answer the second one. Your horse right now is not sure what you want, and is not sure that you are the boss. I would recommend you find someone who can help you who's done some of the "natural" horsemanship work. They can help you learn how to communicate with your horse. Okiek9 & Leo, a member here, may have more good advice, this week's Wiggins Weekly will have a note from that member. Being the boss does not mean hurting your horse, it means being able to give a clear signal to your equine partner of what you want and praising them when they do it right. "If you do it right, the horse will do it right." Thanks for writing, JC

I agree with Mrs. Crandal, but you should try "Join-up"! It's a great way to get him to respect you. (1)Take him to a round pen, take his lead rope and send him to the fence. (2)Make him canter round you and don't stop until you see the sines(licking his lips and chewing the air). (3)When You see the sines you turn your back a him, he should come walking up to you and lick his lips, that's when you turn around and give him luv and pats. If he stands there send him off again. This should work, I tryed is on 4 horses. And remember, always have fun!! =)
