There will be virtual, imaginary, text-only lessons and show events in one room. Ribbons are awarded. Have your teams ready, there will be team compeititons too.   
 The sleepover starts at 6 pm eastern time, USA, and will go for four hours. Members should go to their page and look for the left side link that says "live moderated chat" and click on it.

To celebrate USA Independence day, Kline's is proud to announce that they now sell
western cowgirl hats for pal avatars

Look in the clothing catalog under "hats." Along with Kline's recently added western boots and blue jeans, members can really go for a Western look.

Other news:

  • The trail right up to the Wiggins Estate is almost done. Wilhelmina Wiggins has asked that pals help her look for illegal animal traps and whoever is setting them. So it might be a good time to think about buying a camera from Kline's. It's about to come in very, very handy when riding our new Forest Adventure trail. Testers, look for an email rather soon. And there will be a special key to watch for almost hidden somewhere along that same trail. What does it unlock?
  • New quests are being written right now.
  • Our first e-book, "CPP's ABC Coloring Book of Horses and Ponies" is being edited now. Look forFinally, on Saturday July 3, voting starts for our latest story contest entries. There is some really great writing in there from around the world. One entry is in English written by an Estonian pal!

Here is Nat2 with her indoor rabbit, Princess Jaws.
Her original name was Princess, because she is so pretty. Her second name came after she chewed everything she could find in the living room, including chewing off the buttons on the remote control! She is litter box trained and likes to run around the house and climb on the couch. We have to watch her though, because she likes to climb in bookshelves and eat books. The cats are afraid of her.

This is our pygmy goat Roxie. This is when she was still a baby and didn't have horns. We don't have her any more, but she was a lot of fun.

This is our Siamese, Nala, dressed up as Sacagawea. She was not amused, but she ended up being a pretty good sport.

Pony Pal Thoughts for the Day

When Allah created the horse, he said to the wind, "I will a creature procede from thee. Condense thyself." And the wind condensed itself, and the result was the horse. Margaurite Henry

There is no secret so close as that between a rider and his horse.~
Robert Smith Surtees

With flowing tail and flying mane,
Wide nostrils, never stretched by pain,
Mouth bloodless to bit or rein,
And feet that iron never shod,
And flanks unscar'd by spur or rod
A thousand horses - the wild - the free -
Like waves that follow o'er the sea,
Came thickly thundering on.
Lord Byron
