Look Inside

Jackie the Pit Pony

Jackie, the pony from the Steppes, likes his own way.

Jackie is a pony from the Steppes: freedom means everything to him, and he refuses to be tamed by the farmer who owns him. And so he is sold to a man who owns a mine. Although he likes the mine owner’s daughter, he rebels again when he is set to work, but at least he realises there are other things in life besides the sun.
