Even at graduation, Amy cannot concentrate on her accomplishments. She is distracted by her concern for a sick horse back at Heartland. College is weeks away, but she dreads having to leave her home and her work at the stable, the work she took over after her mother's death.
It doesn't help that Lou, Joni, and her boyfriend Ty are already making decisions without her, anticipating life after she is away at school. When a new horse arrives for treatment, everyone seems wary of telling Amy his story. As she starts to treat him, his fear seems a mystery.
