There's nothing Molly wants more than a horse of her very own. She doesn't care if it's a filly or a colt. Just as long as it's young and strong and can gallop faster than mean Freddy Westover's old mare Della!
Then Molly's dream comes true: She's getting her own horse! But the mare she gets isn't quite what Molly wanted. Lady Sue's so old and worn out, she's probably slower than Della!
But Lady Sue has a surprise for Molly that's better than anything - a baby mule! Molly plans to turn Brown Sunshine into a hardworker and a good friend. But Brown Sunshine just may have a few suprises in store for her.
