Narrator: "Filthy Rich the Rich Pony has lived in Ponyville for many years. He wouldn't want to be anywhere else. He likes every part of it. From the fields filled with flowers to the white sandy beaches. But there is one place that Filthy Rich always enjoyed visiting more than any other. His driver knew this too."
Filthy Rich's Driver: "Come on, Filthy Rich."
Narrator: "He would sometimes say."
Filthy Rich's Driver: "We've made good time today. We'll stop for a while by the forest."
Narrator: "Filth Rich loved it here. The forest was full of broad oaks and tall pines.
Filthy Rich could remember the day long ago where he and Braeburn brought some new trees to be planted and Featherweight and Gummy helped haul them into place. Now he could see the trees growing amongst the others on the hillside. Filth Rich always felt better for being here. He couldn't really explain why, but his driver understood."
Filthy Rich's Driver: "It's peaceful."
Narrator: "He said to Filthy Rich.
But one night, everything changed. The animals were resting in the library."
Narrator: "Said Spike."
Spike: "Can you hear a strange whistling sound?"
Braeburn: "It's the wind blowing outside our library."
Narrator: "Replied Braeburn."
Braeburn: "But I've never heard it like this before."
Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Do you know?"
Narrator: "Added Cranky."
Cranky Doodle Donkey: "If Big Macintosh wasn't here now, I'd say it was him thundering by with the buffaloes."
Narrator: "All the animals laughed, except Filthy Rich."
Filthy Rich: "I hope the wind won't harm the forest."
Narrator: "By morning, the fierce winds had gone, but the damage was done. Filthy Rich's driver came to see him in the library."
Filthy Rich's Driver: "Trees have fallen on the path."
Narrator: "He said."
Filthy Rich's Driver: "We must help clear the path."
Narrator: "Night Light set off with the breakdown crane, and Filthy Rich followed.
Trees lay everywhere. The hillside now looked so bare. Filthy Rich felt sad."
Filth Rich: "What will happen to all the animals who live here?"
Narrator: "He thought.
When Filthy Rich's carts were full of logs, he took them to the timber mill where they would be turned into furniture and other things. Filthy Rich was glad the wood was being put to good use, but he was still sorry to lose part of his forest."
Braeburn: "Oh dear."
Narrator: "Sighed Braeburn to Spike."
Braeburn: "I wish there was something we can do to make things better again."
Spike: "Yes, indeed."
Narrator: "Replied Spike."
Spike: "But what? We can't mend broken trees."
Hoity Toity: "Hello Braeburn."
Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity."
Hoity Toity: "You do look glum."
Braeburn: "I'm sad about the trees."
Narrator: "Said Braeburn."
Braeburn: "And so is Filthy Rich. The forest is a special place to him. Now some of it is gone."
Hoity Toity: "We'll soon put that right."
Narrator: "Replied Hoity Toity."
Hoity Toity: "I have an important job for you, Braeburn. I would like you to take some carts to the forest."
Narrator: "When the carts arrived, Braeburn was delighted. They were full of splendid young trees all ready for planting."
Braeburn: "This is the best job I've ever had."
Narrator: "Said Braeburn happily.
When Filthy Rich returned, he was most surprised. There were Featherweight and Gummy busily helping the workmen clear the torn stumps and branches."
Featherweight: "Look Filthy Rich."
Narrator: "Called Featherweight."
Featherweight: "We're beginning again. The hillside will look better than ever before. You'll see."
Narrator: "Now whenever Filthy Rich stops by the forest, he could see the new trees growing strong and tall. Sometimes, everywhere is very quiet. And at other times, Filthy Rich could hear leaves rustling, or a bird's wing brushing the air. Often he can hear the distance sound of children laughing. And always, he is happy here."
