Adolphus the farm horse is proud of the hard work he does. His friend Arabella rides him every day after school, but then one day Adolphus finds he is out of work after he is replaced by a tractor. He is bored and hurt, and runs away to try and find work on another farm, only to find they all have tractors. He refuses to return home, and finds a brief spell of fame on a tv show until he finds that he is needed at home on the farm, just not in the way he thought.
