Lily is frightened when her beloved horse Beware gets sick and exhibits peculiar behavior.
It's the morning after a violent storm. Lily rides out on Beware to help find the livestock that have scattered in every direction. The cow and her calf, the big blonde workhorses, and Stogie, the uncatchable black Morgan, are all missing. They could be injured -- or worse. Lily knows how to handle the cows and the workhorses, but Stogie can be dangerous. What will Lily and Beware do if they find him? Lily and Beware are back, and their many fans who joined them in "A Blue for Beware" and "Be Well, Beware" will want to ride along again for a riveting, emotion-packed adventure.
Gramp gets a good bargain on an apparently perfect bay mare for Lily, but because the horse is named Beware, he suspects that there may be something wrong with her.
Jane loves ponies. Luckily her Grandma Aggie has two. SweetPea is old and gentle. Jane learns how to ride on her. Popcorn--who was born on the same day as Jane--is young and energetic.<P> Popcorn loves to jump and go fast, and Jane wants nothing more than to ride a pony who'll jump and go fast. Popcorn and Jane are perfect for each other. Or are they? Both of them like to get their own way. And neither is prepared for what will happen when they start to ride together...
From the Book jacket: Another horse stops suddenly. Everyone gasps. The rider flies over his head and lands on the other side of the jump. But she lands on her feet, smiles, and shrugs. Lily knows if Beware does that, she will not land on her feet. She smooths Beware's neck with her hand. "I'm not going in this," Mandy says suddenly. I'll get killed." She rides away toward the announcer's tent. Gramp scratches under his hat. "She's prob'ly right," he says. Lily's stomach turns like a washcloth being wrung out. "Next, the announcer says, "Lilian Gifford on Beware." Why does competition have to be so competitive? Last year, Lily and her friend Mandy took turns riding the same pony at the horse show, and everyone got ribbons just for taking part. This year everything's different. Lily's become a skilled rider on steady Beware, and so has Mandy on frisky Shane. Both girls sense a real chance of bringing home blue ribbons-and both feel surprisingly uneasy about competing against each other. By the author of Beware the Mare and Be Well Beware
