MILTON-FREEWATER — Across the Ferndale Elementary School playground, a student worked to slow down the 6-year-old Welsh pony named “Elvis” that she was riding. “I’ve ridden before, he’s just got more life,” the girl said from her perch. “You need to pull back and get him to stop,” instructed Lorri Wright, a retired Ferndale teacher who raises Welsh ponies with her husband, John. Wright went on to describe Elvis’ lively personality.
