Old friends of Mrs Marsham, the Forrests, arrive from London to live on a barge near the river. At first, it looks as if the two families have nothing in common at all: the Forrests don’t know anything about ponies, and they don’t want to learn. However, they all eventually learn to appreciate each other for what they are.
