Country Life, 1940, illus Harry Rountree
Misty is a grey Exmoor pony, owned by Lorna. Misty’s training starts, but soon hits trouble when she is scared by a car and lames herself. When she’s three she’s broken in and goes hunting. When she’s five she’s sold to Mr Nelson’s circus, and then on to pull a baker’s cart. It is not a good home, but rescue comes when the baker goes over to motor vans and Misty is bought for Molly. Molly is a friend of Lorna’s, and so they meet again.
