The plot of Gypsy Colt (1954) may seem a bit familiar. You could call it Lassie Come Home with horses and there's a good reason for the similarities. Gypsy Colt was based on a story by Lassie author Eric Knight. In Gypsy Colt, a young girl must give up her prize colt when a drought strikes. The horse, Gypsy, is sent 500 miles away. The colt soon misses his owners and escapes to make a miraculous journey home.
