Club Pony Pals News
Personal Cabins Closer to Ready

Dear Pony Pals

Olson's Pony Barn is taking shape every day. Thanks for your patience as we make sure our programmers get it right. New personal cabins are farther along as well.

When a member buys their second or third ponies for a single account, they will be awarded their own personal cabin near Wiggins. Other members will be able to enter your cabin and look at your awards and trophies there. Here's how their outsides will look.

Exterior cabin

In our contests, voting has started, please help choose the art for Coloring Contest 12

We are down to the last few days to enter, make sure and download your Coloring Contest #11 entry form, entry deadline is March 12th.

Voting for our members' story & poem contest is open now, vote for your favorites here.

Our members have been sending in wonderful line drawings for our CPP horse and pony alphabet coloring book. So we have extended our deadline to March 19. We will add entries as we get them. When it is ready as CPP's first e-book, the ABC's of Horses will be a great way to help kids worldwide learn their English ABC's and discover about horse and pony breeds at the same time.

Feeling lost? Look at a map of Wiggins here.

Our new virtual riding lessons are each Tuesday, from 6:30 to 7:30 Eastern Time. Lessons are held in the live moderated chat. This is a great way to work on mentally visualizing your riding -- and they are lots of fun.

Every day hundreds of new members sign up and ask for Pal requests. Take a moment and see who's just signed on recently with our "Pals, Please Page." Our world has some great ways to meet other pals. Click here to learn more. Please help new members feel welcome - send a card to someone who is new!

Our game changes all the time, if you log in and weird things seem to happen, please clear your computer's cache.  See the instructions here to learn how.

Members ask me all the time "how do I earn more bucks?" Anybody who wants more Wiggins bucks is missing out if they don't enter one of our contests! Details are below. We need funny cartoons, they should be in black and white.

Letter and photos from RustyGirl & Sunshine Sally

Hi! RustyGirl here!  I’ve sent this letter by Fastpost from New Zealand, so hopefully I’ve got my competition entries to you on time  J.  I’ve sent a Kaimana and Fell Pony to you for the ABC horse book – hopefully they’re okay.
I’m finding it a little hard to concentrate right now as my cocateil, Clara, just started talking and whistling.  Which reminds me, that’s my next subject – my pets.
Clara, my cockatiel, is not the kind of bird you put your fingers near! She’ll usually be quite happy to talk to you, or even herself thought! She knows not only her more creative self-taught sounds, but over eleven sounds and phrases that we have taught here.
I have a German Shepard called Jak. He’s a reall wuss- he’s always afraid of being told off. Plus he’ll bark at dogs passing across the street (because he want to say hello) but doesn’t bother when a car comes up the drive (unless it’s one of ours – then he runs away.)
Lastly, my cat, Zorro. He’s about eleven, but he’s not called Zorrof for nothing. He won’t even put up with being stroked gently. It’s impossible to pick him up without getting scratched and he’ll happily take on the dog!
Now for the most important part…horses! Unfortunately I don’t have my own real horse (yet…*laughing out loud*.) but I’m still able to be around horses quite a lot J. I work when I can at a horse trekking business. Instead of getting paid I get free riding lessons and treks.
I sometimes ride a four year old American paint X Quarter Horse called Grace. She’s trained for calf roping, and she has an awesome temperament.
Gotta Gallop!
Georgia   a.k.a. RustyGirl & Sunshine Sally

Jack and Clara say hi! There is a glass door between them. Despite her size, Clara tried to attack us when we got close, running at us hissing – it was hilarious!  Clara loves Jak.

Clara check out her reflection in the glass while keeping an eye on the camera.

RustyGirl adjusts hat

I am just getting on Grace- slipping my feet into the stirrups and trying on Grace’s owner’s hat! Grace belongs to a man that works with my dad.

RustyGirl dog

Jak peeks around the door – “That’s kind of scary – is it save to come out?”

Jak lounges in Mum’s chair. No he’s not supposed to be up there!

Zorro sleeps in the banana box next to the front door -  a favourite spot if he can’t be inside!

Pony Pal Thoughts for the Day

The wagon rests in winter, the sleigh in summer, the horse never. ~ Yiddish Proverb


Many people have sighed for the 'good old days' and regretted the 'passing of the horse,' but today, when only those who like horses own them, it is a far better time for horses. ~ C.W. Anderson


People on horses look better than they are. People in cars look worse than they are. ~ Marya Mannes


Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world. ~ Josephine Demott Robinson
