A problem called Scamp


When Scamp the pony is outgrown by the children in the family, he starts to feel a bit lonely and bored. Attempts by the children to find jobs for Scamp to do are disastrous and Dad puts up a For Sale ad. Luckily, Grandad spots where Scamp can be helpful and Scamp is no longer up for sale, or bored.
