A pony lover's dream, Follyfoot is a great adventure story which will also touch the heart of all who care about animals. Full of drama and action which shows children acting resourcefully to protect their beloved horses; this is a heart-warming story which stands the test of time brilliantly.
Follyfoot Farm is a retirement home for old or unwanted horses, invariably horses rescued from a cruel fate or cruel owners. It's run by the Colonel who is helped by his stepdaughter, Callie, and two stable-hands, Dora and Steve. These three youngsters have plenty to do at the stables, but can always find time to get involved in the mysteries and adventures that abound at Follyfoot.
