Matt and his friend Holly were following pony tracks through the woods when they saw it. An ice-covered pony was stuck in the frozen pond her eyes were closed and they couldn't tell if she was even breathing. While Matt stayed with the icy pony, Holly ran back along the path as fast as she could to get help from the island firemen. Matt and Holly both knew that every minute counted...but they never guessed just how important it would be to save that special pony's life.
