Felicity has a grey Welsh Mountain pony, Topsy. Deva, a gipsy boy, rescues Topsy when her field floods, and Felicity wants to reward him and get to know him better. Deva, however, was intending to steal Topsy, so doesn’t think he deserves any reward. Time passes: Felicity and her cousin Raymond ride in a pageant, and then they meet Deva and his family and buy a skewbald from them. Deva, it appears, is caught red-handed trying to steal the pony (Gipsy) back, and is to be sent to a remand home. Felicity decides she must bail him out of the home by selling Gipsy.
