In the conclusion of a two-part story, Laura Ingalls (Melissa Gilbert) wants to enter her horse Bunny in an upcoming race, but is short the money to have the horse properly shod. Meanwhile, Laura's nemesis, Nellie (Alison Arngrim), cajoles her snobbish mother, Mrs. Oleson (Katherine MacGregor), into purchasing a thoroughbred so that she, too, can enter the race. So confident is Mrs. Oleson that her daughter's horse will easily defeat Bunny that she donates a valuable family heirloom as the winner's trophy -- but things don't go exactly according to plan.
