Club Pony Pals News
Changes at Our Club

Dear Pony Pals  

Big changes are coming to our Club. Starting this week, we will no longer identify members by their pony's name, just by their username. When our programmers have Olson's Pony Farm ready, you will be able to change your pony's name and adopt new ponies with different names. As soon as we know it is finished enough, our testers will hear from us first to try out all its new features.

The March Story and Poem Contest is online, there are great stories and poems to read and vote for.

Coloring Contest 12 is now open for voting. 

Help choose the art for Coloring Contest 13 here.

In other news, our CPP horse and pony alphabet coloring book is in production. Look for all the drawings to be online later this week.


When it is ready as CPP's first e-book, our "Pony Pals ABC's of Horses" will be a great way to help kids worldwide learn their English ABC's while they find out about horse and pony breeds.


Feeling lost? Look at a map of Wiggins here.

Our 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.

And if a member creates a Youtube video about our site, let us know! We will award a thousand Wiggins Bucks for a good video about us.

Mongolia Snow Storm Creates Crisis

Dear Pony Pal Families,

Two years ago, the Wiggins Weekly published an account of Mongolia’s annual children's’ pony race. We got many wonderful notes about how our members enjoyed learning about ponies in different lands.

Now, some of those same ponies in the Wiggins Weekly photos face disaster and death. A fearful “Dzud” or freezing winter storm in Mongolia has taken away almost everything animals there have to eat. Please join us in sending contributions you can to a group that is helping to get feed to starving animals in Mongolia.

For anyone allowed to go to Facebook, CAMDA has a page there. For those everywhere who love ponies, this is a chance to help those who most need help right now.

Thank you,

The staff of ClubPonyPals

Pony Pal Thoughts for the Day

I love the horse from hoof to head
From head to hoof and tail to mane
I love the horse as I have said
From head to hoof and back again
James Whitcomb Riley


To be loved by a horse or any animal, should fill us with awe-for we have not deserved it. ~ Marion C Garretty


The one best precept-the golden rule in dealing with a horse-is never to approach him angrily. Anger is so deviod of forethought that it will often drive a man to do things which in a calmer mood he will regret. ~ Xenophon

Calli the rat says "Hi!" Jewl101 wrote "this picture is my pet rat. Her name is Calli." Admin thinks Calli has major "ratitude."
