Here's a beautiful Christmas favorite for those warm winter evenings by the fire. Joshua and Fanny live with their grandfather on just about the prettiest farm in Kincaid county. Life on the farm wouldn't be the same without old Charlie, their horse, but he's getting on in years now. Grandfather thinks it's time to ride out to MacGregor's horse farm and find a young, strong pony to help Charlie with the work. It isn't long before Fanny falls in love with a beautiful young horse with a white mark like a bell on his forehead. Through the long summer days to the crisp autumn evenings, Fanny works with Jingle Bells to teach him the basics of doing farm work. Soon enough, the brisk winter days bring fluffy, white snow which turns the country road into a Christmas day race-track. It's time for Jingle Bells to pull a one-horse open sleigh. The day Fanny and Joshua have been longing for has come, and it's going to be a very special race indeed.
