LAS VEGAS — Wells Fargo will be donating more than 120 4-foot-tall Wells Fargo plush ponies that are on display this holiday season in each of its banking stores to local charitable nonprofits and schools across Nevada.

The oversized plush pony is on display to promote a smaller collectible version that’s available for new Wells Fargo checking customers. For the sixth consecutive year, Wells Fargo is offering a plush pony to every customer who opens a new Wells Fargo Checking Package and to any customer who refers a friend to open a new Wells Fargo Checking Package.

This year’s collectible pony, Al, is inspired by a faithful black horse with one rear white sock that pulled an express wagon around downtown Denver in the late 19th century. Since they were introduced in 2003, Wells Fargo has issued nine varieties of limited-edition plush ponies, each carrying the name and a description of a real horse in Wells Fargo’s history. The ponies have included Billy, an Appaloosa from St. Paul, Minn.; King, a grey-black steed based in the Southwest; Dandy, a cream-colored horse from Auburn, Calif.; Buck, an express wagon horse who served northern Nevada; Grace, a pure white horse from Los Angeles; Trixie, a painted pony, and Prince, a grey horse, based in Ardmore, Okla.; Maggie, a brown and white horse from San Francisco; and Molly, a white mare from Roseburg, Ore. that pulled the Wells Fargo stagecoach in the late 19th century.
