Book One, Story Three

Wolfie’s shiny black coat and thick mane and forelock makes him look so cute and adorable. But, don’t be fooled! This Shetland pony has a very feisty personality and is a favorite of many of the young riders at the Capital Area Therapeutic Riding Association (CATRA) in Grantville, Pennsylvania. The real John’s dedication and love of the real Wolfie inspired the story, “Wolfie, the Most Beautiful Pony in the World.” John not only rode Wolfie at CATRA and at many horse shows, but he also could “drive” Wolfie, meaning that Wolfie can pull a cart or carriage. Wolfie is a very talented pony!

What Our Readers Say…

Kim McLain

‘Wolfie the Most Beautiful Pony in the World’ was my favorite in Adventures At Green Apple Acres because I strive to see the inner beauty in people and other beings. As an example, my favorite dogs have always been mutts — not classically built, with features that can be easily judged, like purebreds at shows — but scruffy, one-of-a-kind companions, with personalities as unique as their outward appearances. And when I was in school, I avoided the cliques of girls who seemed overly concerned with their looks and clothing. Instead, I gravitated toward those who may not have been perfect on the outside, but they had a brain and a sense of humor, which I found much more interesting than a pretty dress or impeccable make-up and hair. So, like the character John, I can appreciate someone for all they have to offer, and see past what meets the eye.
