Sam Jeavons has always looked after horses and travels the streets of the Black County in his pony and wagon, which, today, is all 'trimmed up' for May Day. He's even gone as far as to have Trigger eat his breakfast indoors (not sure if Roy Rogers would have agreed with that). Thankfully for Sam's human visitors, Trigger has been trained not to do any of his 'motions' in the house.
