Hi Pony Pals!

With school out and father's day weekend starting, virtual Wiggins is busier than ever.

From now on, this letter from Jane Crandal will be included in your once a week "who your pals are now pals with" email, along with a link to our online edition.

Klines Hardware Specials

To celebrate the start of summer vacation for most of our members, for this weekend only, Kline's is offering their newly arrived black velvet riding helmets for only 99WB. After this weekend the price will go back to their normal 120WB price.

Mr. Kline also asked me to announce that he expects new couches and chairs for cabins to arrive any day now. Look for them in Kline's new "seating" catalog.

Sleepover Scheduled Mark those calendars now for the next virtual sleepover at Crandal's barn on June 18. Our sleepovers are always a great time. Pam runs one room with her famous "20 Questions" game, her mom conducts lessons and shows in another and Lulu and Anna are in another room to chat with members from around the world (my husband Dr. Crandal says sleepovers are like a herd of wild ponies running around our barn.)

New Cabin of the Week award

Our "Cabin of the Week" winners now get a lovely gold cabin for their cabin mantel pieces to show all their pals their latest honor.

New Exterminator award

exterminator award

For all of our members who have so helpfully aided us in finding and fixing "bugs" all around our site, we now give out our "Exterminator" animated award. It gets across our attitude toward "bugs" and you can see one in Jane Crandal's cabin.

Help us keep Club Pony Pals problem-free! Find a "bug" and send us a description that is good enough so that we can see the bug on our computers. Be the first to report a problem and get 500WB and get our handsome new animated item to display in your cabin.

I drew a picture of a runing appaloosa mare because I like appaloosas so much. The first horse I rode at the stable I ride at was an appaloosa named Pepper.

Experienced riders are not prone to brag. And usually newcomers, if they start out being boastful, end up modest. -C. J. J. Mullen

The riding of young horses is an excellent nerve tonic. -Geoffrey Brooke pony

Keep one leg on one side, the other leg on the other side, and your mind in the middle. -Henry Taylor
