Felicity has a grey Welsh Mountain pony, Topsy. Deva, a gipsy boy, rescues Topsy when her field

to steal Topsy, so doesn’t think he deserves any reward. Time passes; Felicity and her cousin
Raymond ride in a pageant, and then they meet Deva and his family and buy a skewbald from them.
Deva, it appears, is caught red-handed trying to steal the pony (Gipsy) back, and is to be sent to a
remand home. Felicity decides she must bail him out of the home by selling Gipsy.
