Excerpt: ...he called to the Shetland pony. Back up and we'll go home. But Toby did not seem to want to back up. He pulled the cart and the children in it, on toward the brook. At one side of the bridge was a little slope, leading down to the water. There were marks to show that horses and wagons had crossed there, driving through the stream. Whoa, Toby cried Bunny. Where are you going? The little pony was headed straight for the brook. Oh, I guess he wants a drink of water, said Sue. Maybe he does, agreed Bunny, as he saw ...
Excerpt: ...he called to the Shetland pony. Back up and we'll go home. But Toby did not seem to want to back up. He pulled the cart and the children in it, on toward the brook. At one side of the bridge was a little slope, leading down to the water. There were marks to show that horses and wagons had crossed there, driving through the stream. Whoa, Toby cried Bunny.

What'll we do? asked Bunny. Let's drive right on through the water It won't come up over our cart, and it will wash the wheels nice and clean. All right. We'll do it, agreed Bunny. He remembered that once, when he and Sue were at Grandpa's farm, the old gentleman had driven his horses and the wagon, with the children in it, through a shallow brook, after letting the horses drink. This was at a place called a ford, and Bunny and Sue were at a ford in this brook. Gidap, Toby called Bunny, and the pony waded on into the water, pulling the cart after him.
