While on vacation Mandy and James find a herd of feral ponies who come down to the beach everyday. But one foal has a halter on it that is too small and cutting into its face. James and Mandy try to find a way to get a hold of the foal and treat her wounds.
A nice series of books for kids around 10 or so who like animals. It is well written and the adults are helpful and respectful of the children's opinions. They are quite realistic, so you may not want to give this series to children who will be very upset about animals being hurt or neglected.
