Club Pony Pals News
Virtual Sleepover This Friday at Crandals Barn

Dear Pony Pals  

Pam, Anna and Lulu invite CPP's members to join them online this Friday for April's virtual sleepover in Crandal's barn. It starts at the same time Live Moderated Chats usually do -- 6 pm Eastern Time, USA. The sleepover will run for four hours until 10 pm Easter Time, USA.

There are two places to enter the sleepover: either our Forum's main page or from your personal page. Look for a green link that says "Live moderated chat going on now. Click here to join!"

Mrs. Crandal will offer virtual, text based, imaginary riding lessons in one room. Pam will host her famous "20 Questions" games in another room. Lulu and Anna will be there to live chat with members.

As always, no message can display without a live adult OK'ing it first. That's how our COPPA compliant site works.

During last month's sleepover we had members visit from Southeast Asia, New Zealand, Europe, USA, Canada, Mexico. Wherever in the world you are, ponies still like the same things: good care, fresh grazing, clean water, some other ponies and exciting adventures. 

Speaking of worldwide, starting this week, members anywhere will be able to get more Wiggins Bucks by buying the Ultimate Game Card in stores like Walmart,  7-eleven, CVS Pharmacy, Blockbuster, Best Buy, Game Stop and more.

This Ultimate Game Card means members can go to the store and buy a card with cash, come back and enter the secret code from the back of their card to get Wiggins bucks instantly.

And when a member clicks on "Buy Wiggins Bucks" there will be more choices than ever. Any currency worldwide will work.

For example, members will be able to choose a handy monthly subscription so that when a bought pony board bill is due every month, Wiggins Bucks will automatically be added to a subscribing member's account.

Finally, this Friday is another important date: our April Story Contest deadline. If someone is almost done with a story or poem, hurry up, finish it and send it in to contests

Pony Pal Thoughts for the Day

The horse through all its trials has preserved the sweetness of paradise in its blood.
~ Johannes Jensen


Here's to you, Stocking and Star and Blaze.
You brought me all that the best could bring-
Health and mirth and the merriest days
In the open fields and the woodland ways-
And what can I do in return but sing
A song or two in your praise.
~ Will H. Ogilvie

Every journey has an end –
When at the worst affairs will mend –
Dark the dawn when day is nigh –
Hustle your horse and don't say die!
~ Gilbert & Sullivan, "If You Go In," Iolanthe

God forbid that I should go to any
Heaven in which there are no horses.
~ R. B. Cunningham-Graham
