At Follyfoot Farm, the Colonel looks after old and ill-treated horses, helped by his stepdaughter, Callie, and two stable-hands, Dora and Steve*. These three have plenty to do at the stables, but can always find time to get involved in the mystery and adventure that abound at Follyfoot Farm.

(*In the Piccolo 1971 edition at least, it's "Paul", not "Steve".)

"Life can never be dull for young Callie or her family. There is always so much to do on the farm - tending unwanted horses, providing mounts for film companies, schooling ponies, helping unlucky holidaymakers and keeping a wary eye on the unscrupulous owners of the Pinecrest riding stables ."
