Club Pony Pals News

Dear Pony Pals  

Each week thousands of new members join Club Pony Pals. As our Club grows, we are getting so many member photos and art entries that we are truly thrilled to see how many Pony Pals like what we are doing here.

With such growth, we need to make a few changes in our Wiggins Weekly newsletter.

From now on, members can have up to two photos per week in our newsletter. Only one or two postcards will get Wiggins Bucks and be put into our card catalog. Finally, only one art entry will be chosen as our drawing of the week.

Our drawing of the week will be a wall picture for personal cabins. There is now a working clock at Kline's. We are adding new cabin furnishings all the time.

Other news --

  • What's in your cabin? You can learn more about Olson's Horse Farm here.
  • Download an entry form for our current coloring contest.
  • With all the excitement and work of launching Olsons, our CPP horse and pony alphabet coloring book is still in production. There are a few letters missing. Can you draw a pony or horse that has a name beginning with X or U or one of the other missing letters?
  • 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. It 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!
  • Seeing something weird when you log on? 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.
  • Need Wiggins 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.

I have a few more pics for you guys to put in the next WW. I know I already sent some in, but these were just too funny not to! The baby goat is Whiny Brat, and she jumped onto my pony! It is not staged, the goat LOVES to jump on things, I'm just surprised Belle tolerated it. I can't wait to see what it will be like when Whiny is an adult....LOL! Thanks! Spellcheck

I have a picture that you can put in the Wiggins weekly. I know that it is  poorly taken picture with a phone, because I don't have a scanner. You may use it if you wish to.

Pony Pal Thoughts for the Day

The emancipation of women may not have begun with the vote, nor in the cities where women marched and carried signs and protested, but rather when they mounted a good cow horse and realized how different and fine the view. From the back of a horse, the world looked wider.
~Joyce Gibson Roach


Brooks too wide for our leaping, hedges far to high. Loads too heavy for our moving, burdens too cumbersome for us to bear. Distances far beyond our journeying. The horse gave us mastery.
~ Pam Brown


Turning the corner as I drove up to the stable I caught the first scent, the first instant of knowing that once again I would have the golden treasure of walking up to my horse and hearing him whicker hello.
~ Jane Crandal


For horses can educate through first hand, subjective, personal experiences, unlike human tutors, teachers, and professors can ever do. Horses can build character, not merely urge one to improve on it. Horses forge the mind, the character, the emotions and inner lives of humans. People can talk to one another about all these things and remain distanced and lonesome. In partnership with a horse, one is seldom lacking for thought, emotion and inspiration. One is always attended by a great companion.
~ Charles de Kunffy
