What a find!! We loved every page!!! 
These are wonderful stories. Children who love animals and of course especially ponies and horses will love these tales. Beautifully written and full of support for those difficult situations children have to deal with these days. As a parent what I particularly liked was that each story has an important message which even as an adult I found refreshing and uplifting….trying not to give too much away 😉 Pony Tales is like a modern day take on classical children’s stories.

The Painted Pony

“Stargazer lived in a kaleidoscope of colours such that the rainbow looked bland in comparison. In his world, blue turned into every shade of pink, and gold glittered and shimmered. There were colours neither you nor I have ever before seen or heard of – such as popilet and shimmereen, which look like falling stars and burning sunsets. Music filled Stargazer’s world with tunes as warming and comforting as a grandmother’s hug. And above the constant lullaby, sweet scents of candy floss and fudge tickled the noses of all…”

The Galloping Pony

“He was not the handsomest foal ever born, but he was perhaps the cutest. His limbs were too stocky to be described as elegant, and tufts of white and ginger feathers around his knobbly fetlocks gave away his common breeding. His eyes, although not noble, were big and kind and highly unusual, for he had one eye as black as midnight, and one eye as blue as a pale spring sky. All these strange qualities set him aside, even before I mention his curious markings…”

The Girl and her Pony

“Loveheart Heath was a charming little village made up of cobble-stoned lanes and fields of various shades of green, separated by neat hedges. As the crow flies, as it often does, the land below appeared as a large patchwork quilt all shades of emerald green, full of fat cows and happy sheep. Dotted hither and thither were thatched-roofed farmhouses and smaller dwellings for townsfolk. But the most impressive thing about this little village was that it stood closest to the royal castle. And that was a privilege indeed…”

The Runaway Pony

“There once was a grand wooden bridge, only now it is worn and weathered. It creaks at the slightest pressure of a fox’s light skipping paws, and even sways with wind caused by a butterfly’s passing wings. Nobody uses this footbridge anymore. Ferns grow through it, grass grows over it, and clouds often cover it from view completely, such is its height. But once, this bridge was the most important bridge in the land, for it joined the land of Faerie and a county known as Loveheart Heath…”

The Desert Pony

“Once upon a time, in a land now overgrown and lost, there was a magical lake. In itself, the lake was rather ordinary with its crystal-tipped surface and a light silver mist hovering over it. However, where the lake was situated was far from ordinary indeed. Lake Furkan, as it was known then, swelled in many places at different times, and not one person ever saw it in the same place twice. This caused a problem, as one tends to get a hefty thirst when riding under the flaming sun and over scorching sand, so weary travellers depended upon it…”

The Wooden Pony

“The darkening evening swallowed what little warmth the winter sun had provided throughout the day. However, streets still bustled with people, and elegant horses pulled along lavish carriages. Water splashed as the wheels broke the surface of fine ice atop puddles on cobbled stone roads. The horses’ hooves felt neither the chill in their hooves as they trotted through the town, nor did their skin feel the icy air as they glided through it. But besides the warm-blooded beasts, everyone else wore scarves and gloves and big, thick woollen coats…”
