There's no other horse quite like Calliope.  She's short, she's slow, and she's lumpy.  Cowboy Boyd rides her up to the ranch and asks for work.  The other cowboys laugh at the sight of Calliope but Rancher Rose decides to give them a try.  And it doesn't work out very well.  When Rancher Rose tells them they have to move on, Cowboy Boyd says they will leave in the morning.  That night, a huge storm rages across the ranch.  Will Calliope help save the other animals?
