GINNY FINALLY HAS the pony she has always dreamed of, and now she and Mokey are looking forward to a winter full of new adventures. Together, they explore the snow-filled woods and even learn to drive a sleigh. As usual, Mokey has plenty of surprises in store, including one that Ginny can’t believe: Mokey is expecting a foal!

This classic Jean Slaughter Doty tale—now with all-new illustrations by Ruth Sanderson—is back in print after more than 20 years for yet another generation of riders to enjoy.

*spoiler warning*This is a sequel to "Summer Pony". In that book, Ginny was always so happy just to be around her very own pony... In this book it seems that having her very own pony just isn't enough. She gets so preoccupied and focused on the idea of harnessing Mokey to a sleigh that Mokey-without-sleigh isn't enough to keep her interest. She also seems to act a lot more spontaneous and reckless then in the other book; Being so close to Mokey and learning so much about horses while bonding with her, Ginny should certainly know better then to go horse-driven sleighing on snowy roads without an adult. Completely irresponsible.Ginny talks about reading all the foaling books when she finds out Mokey is pregnant, and yet it's obvious that she doesn't know zilch about what to expect. She's very impatient about the whole thing and even gets mad at poor confused Mokey when the horse is unsure about her foal. Don't get me wrong, I love reading books where once-naive children slowly learn all about horses and how to care for them, and mistakes happen of course... It's just the way this book was written, I guess, Ginny's attitude and impatience is annoying.more
