Dear Pony Pals ~

  • Sleepover Scheduled for June 18th, 6 to 10 pm Eastern time, USA. Stop by to chat with Pam, Anna and Lulu, or to take lessons with Mrs. Crandal.  Look for more details in next week's newsletter.
  • New Release Day The Wiggins Weekly will now hit the web on a new day, starting one week from -- yesterday.

Our very next issue posts on Saturday, June 12. So that means we have a new deadline, too. All material for the Wiggins Weekly will be due each week on Friday, contests and scavenger hunt scores will be tabulated every Friday at 3 pm eastern time.  Elsewhere in the world, consult a time chart.

  • Kline's Updated No more leafing through dozens of pages to find what you want at Klines. This week we expanded their catalog into three sections so that members can find what they want faster and easier.


When you go inside Kline's in downtown Wiggins, click anywhere and down will bounce a new catalog sign for our three catalogs. They are "Hardware, Feed and Tack," "For Your Cabin" and "Clothes and Shoes."

So a big Pony Pals "thanks" to all our members who asked us to offer three separate catalogs. Kline's now carries so many different items that pals got tired of leafing through one big catalog!

For members who want to decorate their personal cabins that are free with bought ponies from Olson's, Klines carries couches, settles and chairs in green, pink, natural and blue. New paintings for above cabins' fireplaces are arriving every week.

And Kline's stocks all of our members' SEVENTY clubs' plaques in their own special catalog section. For less than a USA dime, club members can buy and hang their plaques in their personal cabins for all their visiting pals to see. 

  • Club Page update To find out about clubs, look for our special new Clubs page. Whether you're a proud Aussie or Kiwi, Canadian, a dog fancier, a kitten fan, a unicorn believer, a 4-H supporter or someone who likes something totally different, ClubPonyPals probably has a club where you can find others who share your interest.

If you don't see a club that you think would be a good one, write to Jane Crandal on our forum and ask about how to start a club. You can hang Club Plaques in your cabin and all new clubs must submit a club plaque drawing to be listed. If you cannot make a plaque write to Contests@ClubPonyPals.com and we can have Mrs. Crandal or Admin3 our new staff artist help you out.

Our daily live moderated chat is a great place for club members to meet and our fully moderated w-mail system lets club members stay in touch.

  • Other news --
    • 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.
    • New members sign up every day 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.

Finally, hats and helmets are on the way for members' avatars.

We are always working on lots of new features. Check here often to learn about them first.

How is your summer vacation shaping up? Let us know.

Drawing of the Week Contest

horseshoe winner

joelle winner

Dear Club Pony Pals, I really like your site! It is fun and educational! I was wondering if you cold be a little more specific when you assign the quests, though. Sometimes i don't know what to do. Anyway, i hope you like the picture I've drawn for you! Oh! Another question, how do you change the color of your horse? Do you have to buy a new one, or can you change it somewhere? I really like your site and I hope you enjoy my drawing! Your fan, Joelle M.

spellcheck winner

Here is a drawing I've been working on that I was hoping you guys could turn into a painting for cabins because I want to nature-theme my cabin and there aren't any pictures that fit what I want. The colors are really dull because my scanner is old, so I was hoping you guys could darken them to make them actually NOTICEABLE. It is already pre-colored because the paper was dirty and I had to color it in to hide the smudges and stains, so you can warp the colors, just as long as the scene stays pretty much the same.   Thanks, Spellcheck


Winner gets 500 Wiggins bucks, and their art is made into a painting for members' cabins. If you want to enter, send your art to the Contests@ClubPonyPals.com or mail it to:

Hi! I just wanted to send in some pictures of me on my lesson horse, Kimo, and Me on the horse I just sold, my sweet Penny! I was hoping maybe some of them could be put in the Wiggins weekly! I understand if they cant though. just wanted to share some more happy horse stories! I had to sell penny because i could not safely jump on her and jumping is what i do now. i got her when we lived on our farmn in michigan, but not having her at home makes it so much harder to do things with her, and took all the fun out of riding her. i miss her a lot, but i get to visit whenever i want, as long as her new owners are home, and i enjoy jumping even more now because I can give all my attention to Kimo!

We might borrow a horse from my instructor for the summer, but here is a horse that my mom, my instructor and I REALLY like: 

pied piper from sephriam

His name is Pied Piper(aka Piper). Isn't he pretty?



from Britnie

I've always sent in a picture of Shadow, but I decided, I will send in a picture of Crete, my mom's horse, and Achilles, my brother's horse. Crete was named after an island, and Achilles, I believe was a famous warrior back in the day.....Achilles is the Golden Palomino, Although he doesn't look golden yet because he's very dirty(my brother does a horrible job at grooming)and it was spring so he was in between his Winter and Summer coat. Crete is the chestnut horse, though the person my mom bought him from said he was a strawberry roan.....Also, Crete is a solidcolored Paint, and Achilles is a Welsh x Quarter Horse.
