Do you want a pony? What are some of the things you should do?


Holly and Goldie from My Life at Sweetbrier Let’s imagine you dream of nothing but owing a pony. What should you do first? Here’s a checklist for you.

Can your parents afford to board your pony locally?Make sure you learn how to care for your pony before you consider buying one. If you only ride your pony and don’t spend time caring for him, you are not likely to have a special bond with your equine partner.Have your teacher come with you when you’re looking for a pony unless your parents happen to be profe...

Review of Little Miss History Travels to Tombstone


I loved Barbara Mojica’s new book, Little Miss History Travels to Tombstone. When you read this book you’ll learn so many things about the town of Tombstone, AZ. For example, did you know Ed Shiefflin was an Army scout who dreamed of becoming a prospector. His first mine failed, but the second one, called “Lucky Cuss” was one of the most successful ever. Word spread about the new riches in Tombstone and many other people settled there. Before long, the population grew from one hundred to 14,000! Not only that, but also, there were schools, churches, and even a bowling alley.Who were the Earp Brothers and what famous gunfight happened in Tombstone? How can you see some of the items from the e...
