Merrylegs the foal is lonely after his mother is sold, but he soon gets a donkey as a companion, and when he’s broken in, he has plenty to think about. He is sold to a girl called Anne, but misses Bill the donkey terribly. He runs away, but his troubles are over when Anne buys Bill too.

Many thanks to Amanda Dolby for the picture.
