In Mr She-Knows a strange old man turns up at Follyfoot and Dora is very disturbed to discover that he has let out one of the horses, old Glory. Steve doesn’t take the matter very seriously and neither does anyone lee apart from Ron. Unfortunately his attempts to get rid of the old man ends up starting a fire in one of the stables. It’s the final straw for The Colonel who demands that Ron’s father pays for the damages and sacks Ron into the bargain.
When the story behind the old man gets out it turns out that he is old Glory’s former owner and is struggling to get over the recent death of his wife. Ron’s wealthy dad (played by the great Tommy Godfrey) is the one who comes up with the answer – if the Colonel gives Ron one last chance he will set up a stable for Glory and the Old Man and pay for it’s upkeep.
