Rainbow is excited about her first day out on Dartmoor and gets up early when the sun rises over the distant rocky hills which are called tors. She pricks her ears as she gazes towards Honeybag and Chinkwell Tor.
Their next stop is at a place called Postbridge, Rainbow cools off in the river by making a spash beside the ancient pack horse bridge.
They continue on their journey, and Rainbow notices some strange animals peering at her over a stable door. They have such very long ears. "Whoever are you?" she asks. "We are Smudge and Smoke", they bray.
They climb onwards, up a steep hill, and on the way meet a herd of ponies. "Hello, I'm called Rainbow and I live on the other side of the valley."
"We live here on the open moor all the year round" they tell her.
It is getting late in the day. A raven swoops back to it's nest in the rocks, as Tracey photographs Rainbow trotting past Hound Tor. They hurry over Hameldown towards home.
