Amos is a hard working SARDA-pony. (South African Riding for the Disabled Association. Sadly, Amos is too short to see over his stable door. But, everyday Amos helps young kids with different kind of disabilities to do things no one would think possible. So he knows that he must not give up, but to look for a way to overcome difficulties. And he is soo curious and he really wants to know what is happening outside. Luckely, Amos is a very clever pony. All by himself he finds out that if he turns his feed bin upside down, places it close to the door and stands on it, he actually gets taller and can see what is happening out there.
