Sequel to Rosina Copper

“This is the story of Rosina’s foal, who ‘looked as if he’d been dipped in cream’, and of the adventures that befell him when his mother was working in a circus.  Two children, Robin and Jean, on a camping holiday with their mother beside a loch, first see Rosina and son on a small island in the middle of the loch. Later they meet Tex, who owns Rosina, and help him to rear the little foal and break it in to the halter. Tex explains that the circus for which he works has no winter quarters to which to go to, and the children’s mother agrees to let the circus folk stay at her own farm. From then onwards the children are inseparable from Rosina and her foal whom they christenBud.”
