Can you match the animals below with the pony books they appear in. Some of the animals feature in more than one book and more than one animal may appear in the same book. (BTW the animals are just representative of a species not a particular breed)
Have fun. Answers will be added in red.
1. PONIES AND HOLIDAYS - MARY GERVAISE CAT
2. THE WILD ONE - MONICA EDWARDS PUMA
3. DESPERATE SEARCH - MATT CHRISTOPHER CAT & DOG
4. MORGAN AND YEW - STEPHEN COSGROVE SHEEP
5. FLIP AND THE MORNING - WESLEY DENNIS CLUE: THE ANIMAL IN THIS ONE ALSO FEATURED IN ANOTHER BOOK FURTHER DOWN THE LIST!

What breed was the bull - don't tell me it WAS a Hereford?!
Thanks Sarah and Darkhorse
No it was a Jersey really!! lol
Lol well you know what my memory is like. And it's getting worse - I spent 10 minutes the other day trying to remember the TITLE of the book so asking me to recall the breed of the bull is a non-starter!!
All correct so far. Not sure what sort of eagle is in Silver Dingo. Anyone read it recently? Crikey I seem to be getting bogged down in this breed/type/species thing. I just used whatever pics I had in my clip art collection to represent animals. I've now added the names of the animals to the quiz which I should have done in the first place, knowing what an exacting lot you pumbles are haha. That saying the pig IS actually the correct breed!

cally: Oh I see how this works now- don't press the return button, eejit. How do I start to write a pony book having read hundreds, and not accidentally or intentionally accidentally 'borrow' ideas?

aud: Can anyone tell me if they know of a Pony book that has a story line with A nesting Pair of Osprey Birds(thats as well as Ponies)i have been told it is either Alisons Island Adventure by Sheila Stewart or one of the Jinney books by patricha Leitch.

tali: One of the Jinny books has a sub story line of egg stealing so may be the one you are thinking of. It is one of the books that features the character Claire Burnley.

ginslinger: It is one of the early Jinny books. I only read the first few and I found the storyline upsetting.
