PBOTD 23rd December: Wendy Douthwaite - The Christmas Pony

Here's a 1980s pony book which really couldn't be better titled for this time of year. Wendy Douthwaite's Christmas Pony (1985) is a gentle story about 11 year old Lindy, who is finding it very difficult to adapt to having a new stepmother, now her father has remarried after the death of her mother. She and her mother had a plan for Lindy to save for a pony and buy a foal. Eventually, Lindy has saved enough to go to the local Sale and buy a foal, but she gets rather more than she bargained for.
