The Dawson family want a farm of their own, but they have little money, and Mr Dawson works in a mine. But then he is crippled in an accident, and is out of work. He is made a present of his pit pony, Dandy, to the excitement of ten-year-old twins, Kitty and Joe. They realise that with Dandy’s help, they can do some work. One day they meet an old man who has sprained his ankle and help get him home. When he becomes ill, Mr Dawson and Joe help look after his little farm. Their kindness is rewarded in a big way, when Zekie turns out to be a rich man.
