Narrator: "Shining Armor was getting old. His body was worn and he clanked as he walked along. He was taking empty changelings to a market town. The sun shone, birds sang, but Shining Armor was heading for trouble."

Shining Armor: "Come on, come on."

Narrator: "He puffed."

Changelings: "Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh!"

Narrator: "Screamed the changelings."

Narrator: "Shining Armor puffed and clanked. The changelings rattled and screamed.

Some cows were grazing nearby. They were not used to unicorns. The noise disturbed them.

As Shining Armor clanked by, they broke through the fence and ran across the road. A changeling let go and some were let behind.

Shining Armor felt a jerk but didn't take much notice. He was used to changelings."

Shining Armor: "Bother those changelings."

Narrator: "He thought."

Shining Armor: "Why can't they come quietly!"

Narrator: "He was at the next station before he or his driver realized what had happened.

When Big Macintosh and Filthy Rich heard about the accident, they laughed and boasted.

Filthy Rich and Big Macintosh: "Fancy allowing cows to break his load. They wouldn't dare do that to us. We'd show them."

Narrator: "Old Braeburn was cross."

Braeburn: "You couldn't help it, Shining Armor. They've never met cows. I have, and I know the trouble they are."

Narrator: "Some days later, Big Mac rushed through Shining Armor's station."

Big Macintosh: "Mind the cows! Hurry, hurry, hurry!"

Narrator: "Puffed Big Mac."

Buffaloes: "Don't make such a fuss. Don't make such a fuss."

Narrator: "Grumbled his buffaloes. A long path was ahead. In the distance was a bridge. It seemed to Big Mac that there was something on the bridge. His driver thought so too."

Big Macintosh's Driver: "Whoa, Big Mac."

Narrator: "He said."

Big Macintosh: "Pooh!"

Narrator: "Said Big Mac."

Big Macintosh: "It's only a cow. Shoo! Shoo!"

Narrator: "He moved slowly onto the bridge, but the cow would shoo. She had lost her calf and felt lonely."

Daisy Jo: "Moo!"

Narrator: "She said sadly. Everyone tried to send her away, but she wouldn't go. Filthy Rich arrived."

Filthy Rich: "What's this? A cow. I'll soon settle her. Be off! Be off!"

Daisy Jo: "Moo!"

Narrator: "Said the cow. Filthy Rich backed away nervously."

Filthy Rich: "I don't want to hurt her."

Narrator: "At the next station, Filthy Rich's conductor told them about the cow and warned the signalman that the line was blocked."

The Porter: "That must be Daisy Jo."

Narrator: "Said the porter."

The Porter: "Her calf is here, looking for her mother. Pipsqueak will take her along."

Narrator: "At the bridge, Daisy Jo was very pleased to see her calf again, and the porter led them away."

Filthy Rich and Big Macintosh: "Not a word. Keep it dark."

Narrator: "Whispered Big Mac and Filthy Rich to each other. They felt rather silly. But the story soon spread."

Shining Armor: "Well, well, well."

Narrator: "Chuckled Shining Armor."

Shining Armor: "Two big animals afraid of a cow."

Big Macintosh: "Afraid? Rubbish!"

Narrator: "Said Big Mac."

Big Macintosh: "We didn't want to poor thing to hurt herself by running up against us. We stopped so as not to excite her. You see what I mean, my dear Shining Armor."

Shining Armor: "Yes, Big Mac."

Narrator: "Said Shining Armor. Big Mac felt somehow that Shining Armor saw only too well."
