Nutmeg – The Horse with a Mind of His Own


Show-jumping story told from the point of view of the horse, Nutmeg. In the sequel Nutmeg at the Olympic Games, Nutmeg makes it to the Montreal Olympics, but has problems with competing, including a jealous horse tampering with his feed and being unjustly expelled from the team.

Another sequel appeared in Judy with a different artist,  Nutmeg and Fritz. Nutmeg now an Olympic gold medal winning horse,  could not get on with his overbearing German cousin, Fritz. Nutmeg kept trying to outsmart Fritz, usually without success. Now a newcomer, Skewie, had arrived at the stables and Nutmeg was showing what he could do.
