"Once upon a time, there was a pony who had a coat as white as snow and a mane as black as ebony." Her name was Snow Pony. Children from far and wide came to see Snow Pony.  She was so beautiful. And she loved to dance and she loved to braid hair!  All the children loved her. Except one. She and her pony Queenie didn't like Snow Pony one bit. Queenie was jealous of all the attention Snow Pony got while no one paid any attention to Queenie. Something must be done. If Snow Pony wasn't around any more, the children would all love Queenie. So Queenie thought up a way to lure Snow Pony into the woods where she would be lost forever!  Oh no. What will Snow Pony do?
