1948, Charles Scribner's & Sons
Lucky kids Bud and Lynn live next door to a farm that raises Shetland ponies, and owner Mrs. Marian allows them to come over and ride and watch the foals. One foal in particular, the spectacularly marked Half 'n Half. The colt of head broodmare Snowflake, he has many adventures which are fully illustrated, from chasing frogs to running with other foals to getting into trouble.
Slight story, charming drawings.
