All John cares about is his blue heeler dog and horses–only he can’t get his parents to understand the absolute necessity of owning a high-spirited Arab. When a horse that looks like a refugee from an equine slaughterhouse is given to him, John is thrilled and believes the ungainly gelding is exactly what he’s always longed for. With his dog and horse, all that’s ahead are exciting and enjoyable adventures together!
John wants a horse, and his parents are unsympathetic to his plight. Only Jenny understands and so she offers to share her own fat pony with him. As a result of one of their adventures, John gets his own horse at last…but it’s then that his problems really start. How in the world can he earn enough money to take care of a horse on his own when he’s constantly (and literally) being “dogged” by trouble in the shape of a small blue heeler?
