The farmer had a pet horse. He liked to enter the horse in trotting races. Now the horse had a pet donkey and the donkey had a pet lamb.... and when the mouse had six pets of her own they all went to the races. A charming little story, with the structure of an old cumulative folk tale and Carroll's gentle, realistic animal pictures.
