Farmer Klauss is tricked into taking a little red pony in exchange for his two good work horses when a group of gypsies convince him the pony has unusual magic powers. When the farmer discovers the pony is just a pony, he enlists the help of his wife, his cowherd and a policeman to recover his good horses. The little gipsy girl Rosalita misses her little red pony, and helps the farmer and the others play a magic trick of their own on the gypsies.
