|Meet Eric Stanley Pigeon (ESP) a pigeon born on the rooftops. He is the bird of Old Smelly Tramp’s dreams – because he is partial to a flutter on the horses. Thanks to Eric’s amazing ability to peck out the names of winning horses, Old Smelly the Tramp’s fortune looks set to change. He starts to win on the horses, each time he puts on more and more and more.
Captain, Ladybird and Herbert – two Shire horses and a Suffolk Punch – are not pleased when Jenny, a retired seaside donkey, arrives at the Old Horses’ Home. It’s supposed to be a home for horses, and they don’t want to share their field with a common little donkey.
There are six puppies in the pet shop; five posh pedigreed ones, and a scruffy little mongrel with a grand ambition — to be a guard dog. The other pups laugh at him. How can such a small dog possibly guard a home? Especially when his bark is the most earsplitting racket they have ever heard!
