Booktalking "The Lost and Found Pony" by Tracy Dockray

lost pony

The pony in this story is plaintive and adorable. He or she grew up and wondered what the future would hold. The pony learned to jump and won blue ribbons at horse shows. Then, he or she refused a very high jump. The girl grew up, and she became too big to ride him or her. So... the pony joined the circus, where he or she leapt through fire. Throughout all of this, the pony wondered what had become of the girl. Soon, with the advent of the Internet and other forms of entertainment, the circus lost its popularity. The pony was auctioned off, and he or she was lucky to become a school pony for kids' riding lessons! This is the life of one Pony of the Americas.
