In the land of Nictinus, everybody has a purpose. Fish swim, birds fly, and horses run. One day, a horse named Helia gives birth Pega, Pega is a very adorable black pony, born with short legs. As Pega grows up, his legs were not long enough for him to run as fast as the rest of the herd. He usually trots behind everybody else. Helia notices this and comforts her son. She prays to Zeus and talks to him. She wonders what the god can do to help her son become greater than he is. Zeus tells Helia to be patient because soon, Pega's purpose will be revealed. Years pass by and Pega's legs grow longer but thinner than the normal legs of a stallion. He just grazes alongside Helia and stays away from the horses his age. He just doesn't want to be made fun of all the time. Suddenly, a huge fire was started by a few young stallions in the forest. They cornered a phoenix, which set a few dried leaves into flames. There was a fawn trapped in the forest, unable to escape the flames. Pega is the only one near enough to rescue the fawn. He tries his best to trot to the fawn. What will happen to Pega as he jumps over the burning log to rescue the fawn? Will he be able to be greater than he is on thin, weak legs?
