SHSP: The Wildwood Ponies

And now onto the second group of SHSP!

-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-

When the Celestial Unicorn placed the Ponies in the Wildwood, she made them promise to protect the woods and the creatures in it. The six ponies have spent the last hundred years keeping out hunters, lumberjacks, and a variety of folks looking to capture them for their powers, or to take over the Rainbow. Thus, they are not a very trusting lot.

When Princess Amber (and her Squire Madeline) went into the forest to seek their help in defeating the Armies of Arus, the Ponies didn’t trust her. But after a few misadventures, they were fast friends. Amber and Madeline have been sworn to secrecy about the Wildwood Ponies, and not even the King and Queen know what’s going on.

The Wildwood Ponies are the only group that never forgot about the rest of the Ponies. While they patiently guard the Rainbow (with the help of their human friends), they daydream about someday going home to Ever After.
