At Animal Ark, Mandy Hope helps her parents treat animals of all shapes & sizes. Even outside the clinic, Mandy can't resist helping any animal in need. It's Christmastime, and Mandy is headed to her Great-Aunt Pip's house for the holiday. Pip lives in the New Forest, an ancient woodland rich with wildlife & fascinating local traditions. Mandy is eager to meet the wild ponies that roam the land, and she soon befriends a gentle mare & her beautiful roan colt. But as usual, it's not long before Mandy's veterinary knowledge is urgently needed. The Forest can be a dangerous place when it's dark & icy.
