Lou puts a brave face on lingering insecurities when former coworkers from the high-powered career she gave up in New York become customers at her corporate equine retreat. Amy helps Lou with the guests because Caleb ditches them. When Amy is gone, Mallory does a bit of jumping on Spartan, then takes him on a ride.
While checking a log on the trail to make sure it's safe to jump, Mallory doesn't notice Spartan leave. She finds him grazing at the side of the road relatively quickly, but doesn't notice the signs indicating recent pesticide application. Once they return to the ranch, it becomes evident something is wrong, which Ty correctly guesses to be pesticide poisoning. Ty looks into Marion's notebooks, and gets Mallory's help to mix charcoal and water. Caleb and his friend Kit, who Ty met accidentally while she was bathing in the pond early that morning, show up. Ty explains the situation, and they get Spartan to drink all the jugs of charcoal water together.
Meanwhile, Lou's friends work out their problems with each other, themselves, and their love lives. Lou's friend Lauren kisses Tim, who pushes her away, and Lou becomes upset with her friend. Lou admits Scott said no to her proposal because he wasn't sure, and that she doesn't know how they stand now. At the end of the trip, Lou feels bad for the fight that happened among the girls the previous night and tries to apologize, but the girls say it was therapeutic, and they will be sure to spread the word in New York about the Heartland Equestrian Connection. Out for a ride along the river, Amy comes across an RCMP officer trying to save a young boy from drowning.
She tries to help his horse, Venture, who has developed a fear of water. She discovers the connection to the trauma of Constable Rodriguez's brother drowning six years earlier, for which he still feels responsible, and ends up helping both the horse and the officer. Lou goes to a polo match for Nick Harwell's polo team, as he gave her a number of free tickets, and upsets Scott when Nick talks about hiring him and Lou praises his work.
Scott and Lou talk about the state of their relationship, and they break up for real. Lisa tries to convince Jack to go to the polo match with her, but he refuses. Jack shows up just as the match starts and apologizes to Lisa for being so stubborn. Ashley takes Caleb to the polo club with her and shares her new pursuit of barrel racing which Kit is teaching her with her mother's friends, much to Val's chagrin.
Ty asks Amy out on a date, but she already has plans with Caleb. Mallory tries to get rid of Jake, using lame excuses to avoid seeing him and ignoring his phone calls. Jack facilitates an honest conversation between the two, frustrated with their beating around the bush and hoping to get some peace. They walk off together, with Mallory reiterating that she is not a " buckle bunny ". With the annual Hudson Heritage Rodeo looming, everyone at Heartland gets roped into the action and intrigue of broncs, bulls, beer, beauty queens, and belt buckles. Amy and Caleb compete in team roping and he also competes in bronc riding , earning him the all-around cowboy buckle at the rodeo.
Kit wins, Soraya is runner-up, and Ashley is second runner-up. Ty competes in bull riding when someone who was entered doesn't show up, and Amy becomes upset, concerned for his safety. Amy seems concerned over Ty and Kit's budding friendship. Ashley is noticeably upset at the party that follows the rodeo and is drinking quite heavily, and Amy learns from her that Apollo, Ashley's show jumping horse and the only horse that she had a bond with, has been sold. By the end of the night, Ashley is too intoxicated to take herself home, so Amy drives.
She takes her eyes off the road and swerves, then Ashley yanks the wheel and they go off the road. Ty and Kit are headed home in his truck, and they help the girls. The next morning, Ty takes the blame for the accident, as Ashley was drunk and Amy doesn't have her drivers license. It's the end of summer in Hudson, and the weather is sweltering.
While most of the family are awake because of the heat, Brad Borden Ty's father comes to Heartland with six horses in a livestock trailer designed for cattle. One of the horses is down on the floor with a bad head wound, and Jack is forced to do the merciful thing, though Amy is desperate to prevent it. The other five horses are badly dehydrated and in rough shape, but able to wait until morning, when Scott can get to Heartland from Red Deer.
Amy has a feeling that she knows one of the horses, and after cleaning his face, realizes that it is Ashley's former jumper, Apollo. When Amy calls Ashley, she is distraught thinking that her mother sold Apollo to a meat truck. In fairness, Val thought that the horse dealer she sold to was reputable. Ashley smashes the windows of Val's SUV with a golf club and runs away from home, despite Val's threats to cut her off financially. Ashley spends much of the episode working and living at the dude ranch, and considering dropping out of high school.
Ty is upset with his father for leaving him alone in Calgary, resulting in some bad things for Ty. Amy, Ty, Caleb, and Mallory work together to care for the horses which ends in a water fight. When the rain finally comes and cools off the heat, Ty and Amy go outside and kiss, but Ty breaks it off, worrying he is like his dad and saying he doesn't want to hurt Amy. However, Brad takes the money and leaves abruptly in the middle of the night, after receiving a call from the men that are still expecting his to return their money. Constable Rodriguez comes to the rescue when it looks like the horses will have to go back to the dealer, and the family keep the horses to use on trail rides for the dude ranch.
Sudz Sutherland. Amy and Soraya return to school, and Amy makes a bunch of schedules so that Caleb and Ty will do most of the work, and she won't have to fall behind in her studies this year. However, there have been some mysterious cattle rustlers roaming about stealing many ranchers' cows and the ranchers are getting worried.
Tim is one such rancher, and he hires both Caleb and Ty to watch his herd. This angers Amy, as she knows they won't have enough time to do most of the regular chores at the ranch as well. When she expresses this anger to Caleb, he kisses her and tells her that she thinks too much. The next day, Ty and Kit are having fun while working on schoolwork in the back of his truck, and they kiss. By this time, they had become close, and she had helped Ty apply to take online courses to complete his high-school diploma.
Mallory discovered at the start of the episode that her parents had important news that could only be shared face-to-face. Her father has a gold record, and is going on tour to promote it. Since they can't be around to take care of her, Mallory is to be sent to Blessed Virgin Academy, an all-girls boarding school. There is a touching moment as she leaves the ranch. The tension continues to increase in this episode, as the ranchers become more and more concerned about their cattle.
The police try to help track the rustlers, but they work swiftly, observing herds from a helicopter, then cutting fence lines and rounding up the cattle, driving them into a livestock trailer and escaping. Lou feels torn, as she has started seeing Mark Rodriguez, to whom her father is becoming increasingly hostile, feeling that the constable is inept at his job of preventing livestock theft.
The episode reaches its climax when Ty and Caleb watch as the cattle rustlers turn up to steal Tim's herd of cattle. Amy rides off in search of the ranch hands when she finds no work completed in the barn, and comes across the same scene, but one of the rustlers causes Spartan to rear, dropping Amy to the ground. Ty and Caleb come to help her, and she manages to escape, but the rustler has a gun and they stop advancing towards the scene of the crime. Jack drives up with Tim in tow, tipped off by Ashley, and try to stop the rustlers, but they are outnumbered.
Amy sees this, and comes running towards them, calling, "Dad! The episode ends on a cliffhanger, with no indication of where the bullet got Tim or whether he will survive, and the cattle rustlers drive off with his entire herd minus the two longhorns. The episode prolongs the cliffhanger as long as possible, not referring to what happened to Tim, showing an influx of food from friends of the family which usually corresponds with a funeral and a conversation between Lou and Jack about Amy, saying that it's good she went on a ride.
She is even seen riding past the cemetery where her mom was buried in the first episode. Tim turns out to have been injured in his right shoulder, and he is wearing a sling. Tim becomes a source of tension in the household, constantly ringing a bell and expecting to be served. Amy is feeling guilty for being the cause of his bullet wound although indirectly , and she heals while caring for another horse. Amy's teacher, Ruth Adams, is trying to sell her father's old chestnut, Boxer. Amy and Ty try to help him settle in while they work on rehoming him, by bringing Hank Adams to visit his horse.
While he is there, Ruth shows up, very upset that her father was brought to the ranch, revealing that Hank has Alzheimer's. Despite being fuzzy about who his daughter is, Hank clearly remembers Boxer and even Jack. Jack eventually remembers that Hank was the lead guitarist for his wife, Lyndy, when she was a singer professionally. Jack had brought out an old record of hers to listen to, and they listen to it while talking with the Adams. Hank spontaneously picks up a guitar and starts playing the song in time with the record.
In the end, Amy offers to keep Boxer so that Hank can visit him while he is able, and Ruth accepts this offer. While Tim is wearing out his welcome with Jack, Callie Phillips shows up and starts taking care of Tim. It seems they have been seeing each other since the cattle drive earlier in the season, and she stays at Big River whenever she is in town. This is quite a shock to the girls, who had no idea that Tim had a girlfriend. Amy is the least comfortable with it, and is fairly rude to Callie while she stays with them overnight.
In the meantime, Lou is still seeing Mark, and enjoying it, even making him a mixed CD of police-related songs whether by theme or artists' name. However, they were supposed to take a trip to the Banff Springs Hotel and have lunch there, but Mark says he is busy going to a provincial review meeting in Edmonton. This turns out to be a lie when Lou sees him kissing a blonde in Hudson, in his truck. He tries to explain that he didn't think they were exclusive, but Lou dumps him without a second thought. Ty is on a date with Kit, and Caleb tells Amy that Ty gave her up too easily.
Caleb then shares a kiss with an enthusiastic Amy. Callie and Tim get in a fight, but get back together, and she takes him back to Big River, and finally out of Jack's hair. Hollywood starlet and gossip-rag fodder Mindy Fanshaw arrives at Heartland under the pretext of honing her riding skills, which turn out to be non-existent.
Mallory is found hiding in one of the dude ranch cabins, having been aided in her 'escape' from the boarding school by Jake. Mallory collects items Mindy has used around Heartland, planning to sell them on eBay so she can repay Jake for the money he spent helping her. She attacks Amy in particular for being unable to choose between Ty and Caleb or express how she feels about either guy.
When Mindy ropes Caleb into taking her on a trail ride, she insists on riding an ailing Pegasus, ignoring Amy's warning that the horse should not be used. This results in a calculated photo-op for Mindy with paparazzi tipped off by her agent. The photographers get too close and spook Pegasus, dropping Mindy off his back, but causing stone bruises and a chipped bone for Pegasus. Lou eventually kicks Mindy out for behaving as a spoiled rich girl and disrupting the peace at Heartland, and she drives off into the sunset. Amy promptly gives this to Soraya, with whom she was fighting over Amy's not sharing that Mindy was taking riding lessons at Heartland.
Mackenzie has changed quite a bit from her last visit to Heartland. She has given up the pretense of allergies to gluten, dairy, sugar, food that is not certified organic, and caffeine. She is also much more relaxed and happy with her easygoing husband-to-be in the picture. She has also taken a page from Lou's book and quit her job to be her own boss, running a little art gallery in the Village. When Mackenzie arrives at Heartland, she is talking about a small wedding under 50 guests held outside near the dude ranch, with a BBQ cookout reception. Lisa with the best of intentions meddles with Lou's plans for Mackenzie, since she knows the Huttons and their high-society lifestyle.
Lisa and Mackenzie's mom convince her that she would be happier with a sit-down reception dinner and a tent and roses and peonies for table settings, rather than what she and Ian had been hoping for. Lisa also meddles in Lou's personal life, giving her email to a friend, who passed it on to another friend's single son. Peter, the young man, emails Lou, but she has to decide if she wants to respond. In the meantime, Amy has been treating another horse for Lisa, an Andalusian beauty named Diva.
Lisa claims the horse is cursed, calling her "Diva girl, the divorce horse", as everyone who has owned the horse has become divorced. She is moody and temperamental, and Lisa asks Amy to figure her out, since Diva has been returned three times after being rehomed. With Ty and Caleb's help, Amy determines that Diva just needs to be a horse, and hates to be kept in a stall. Unfortunately, this means that Lisa cannot sell her as a show horse. She ultimately decides to give Diva to Mackenzie, who had taken a real shine to her, and would be able to keep her at her inlaws' ranch in Montana.
While Mackenzie and Ian had been fighting during the episode over whether to even get married after their plans were hijacked, they resolve their differences and remember how much they love one another. The episode ends with Mackenzie and Ian saying their vows in the company of the Heartland family, at sunset in front of the dude ranch cabins and overlooking the pond.
Bedford Oil comes to Hudson and begins to conduct oil exploration on Jack's property, using seismic testing and exploratory oil wells. Mallory tells Lou that there is little to be done, as the oil companies can do as they please. Feeling shocked by the injustice of it, Lou mobilizes the community against Bedford. She holds a town hall meeting where she invites local community members, their MLA , and a representative from Bedford Oil, who shows up and turns out to be PW Peter Walter Morris, the company owner.
Tim shares a contrasting perspective with Lou privately, saying that he would be glad to have a well installed on his property, for the royalties he would be paid. Mallory is reading Wuthering Heights and becomes convinced that Amy and Ty are Catherine and Heathcliff, meant to be together but thwarted by circumstance. Amy is working on desensitizing a horse named Acorn to noise and struggles to make progress with the oil company blasting at the edge of Jack's land.
Ashley and Caleb become roommates, as Ashley leaves Briar Ridge again after fighting with her mother. Mallory discovers that the two fishermen staying at the dude ranch are actually working for the oil company, when she is cleaning their cabin and discovers their fishing gear left behind. Lou kicks them out, though they protest that they had paid for several days more.
Lou continues to hold a grudge against Lisa and avoid her company, though she continues to instant message with the man that Lisa gave Lou's email to. By the end of the episode, Lisa apologizes to Lou and they have an honest conversation, making up in the process. Lou meets PW in town twice, spilling coffee on his shirt both times. He seems somewhat interested in her, but she shuts him down. Lou agrees to meet "Internet guy" as Mallory has dubbed him, who turns out to be none other than PW.
Neither one of them were able to make the connection, though, as both used their first names - Peter and Samantha. Lou lets practical considerations the fact that Peter is "an oil guy" get in the way of having a relationship or even a date with Peter. Nonetheless, they wind up kissing on the street in front of Maggie's. Lou starts to leave, returns to kiss him again, and then says that their attraction cannot go anywhere, ending the episode on a small cliffhanger.
Ty's former probation officer, Clint, brings two troubled kids to the ranch, hoping that they can learn something from Ty and the ranch where he sorted out his problems. The two kids, Tara and Badger, seem to be at the far end of the spectrum relative to Ty, starting off their stay by burning an Adirondack chair at the dude ranch and putting peanut butter in the muffin Clint was eating -- knowing he was allergic to peanuts.
Tara is a goth , and Badger is a boy who never talks. They clash with most of the family, and especially Mallory. Tara teases her by calling her a cheerleader, Hilary Duff , and similar names that reflect her perception of Mallory as a peppy "nice girl". Ty and Badger fight from the beginning, when he refuses to put out his cigarette and later lets all of the horses in the barn out. Tara follows Ty around a bit, making reference to them being alike, thinking she knows his experiences.
Mallory eventually makes peace with Tara by sharing her own story about her parents leaving her at Heartland to go on the road. Tara responds dismissively, but Mallory says she should realize that other people have problems too. After this, Tara comes around. Mallory even persuades her to take a riding lesson, making a deal with Tara that Mallory will try out the goth look and attitude in exchange. Amy takes them back to the dude ranch so that she can watch them and there will be enough room for everyone, then sits outside with Ty by the fire as Mallory and Tara have a pillow fight.
Ty confides that he didn't want the other foster kids at Heartland because he doesn't want to be a poster boy for the rehabilitation program. Ty reveals that his mother remarried a man who was horrible to them both. He made a vow to pay him back for the pain he inflicted, and when he did, the neighbours called the cops. At this point, Ty met Clint, who was supposed to deal with the hopeless cases.
Amy is happy that Ty finally shared his story, and tells him that she's happy Clint brought him to Heartland. When a county by-law threatens to separate elderly Mrs. Bell from her beloved pony Sugarfoot, Lou revives the Hudson Charity Derby to raise money for a legal defense fund. This reawakens an old rivalry between Tim and Jack, who were the reason the derby became defunct many years previously. Both dispute who won, because Tim won by going off-course during the race. Both sign up for this derby to settle their score.
Kit drops off her horse Money short for You're so Money , whom she thought was a chuckwagon horse, to Heartland for rehoming. Scott looks at the horse and determines that he has a tattoo, meaning he was a racehorse. Ty looks up Money's records and discovers that he was a success when racing. Amy helps get Tim's palomino horse in shape for the race, as Tim is still having difficulty riding due to his shoulder.
Ty helps Jack train on their "secret weapon" because Jack's horse, Paint, is too old to race in the derby. Tim and Jack are doing well in the race, until Tim falls off his horse and Jack stops to help him. Scott wins the race and Tim and Jack tie for second although Tim's horse was ahead by a little bit, if you watch closely. Amy and Ty are recruited to be spotters at the halfway point, which doesn't work out, as the walkie talkies that Amy and Lou communicate on are unable to connect properly over such a distance.
Ty and Amy start play-fighting and almost kiss. Ashley's mom offers to sponsor Caleb so he can join the professional rodeo circuit and leave Hudson. This episode features some comic relief between Jack and Tim - Tim offers Jack hay, and Jack thinks it will be free. They haggle over price, and Jack plans to take the hay. They disagree later, and he comes back to return the hay.
In all, the hay is lifted onto and taken off of the bed of Jack's truck no less than four times. The episode opens with Amy and Spartan out on a ride as dusk is falling. For no clear reason, Spartan is acting a bit uneasy. This part of the episode is filmed as if through the eyes of someone watching Amy and her horse, always with trees between the scene and the audience. When they return to the barn, Amy also seems uneasy, and decides not to let Ty turn Spartan out with the other horses overnight. That night, Amy tosses and turns, seeing the night her mom died in her dreams, while Wes breaks into the barn and escapes with Spartan.
When Amy wakes up in the middle of the night and goes to check on him, she discovers that Spartan is gone. The family speaks to the police to track Spartan, but Ty and Amy also spend the next couple weeks checking horse auctions to see if Spartan turns up. They visit the Highwood Auction, and Ty buys a two-year-old bay gelding named Harley. Amy is angry that he spent the money he'd been saving for a motorcycle on a horse, but he says that he's almost a motorcycle, due to the name.
Amy starts to storm out, but Ty stops her when he sees Spartan turn up. Spartan is there and Wes buys him "legally". Amy tries to prove that Spartan is her horse, but she doesn't possess a bill of sale, and current registration papers don't prove it without one. Wes is unable to leave with Spartan right away because Ty slashed his tires to ensure he couldn't leave before they talked to the brand inspector.
Ty chases down Wes later, hoping to buy Spartan back, but Wes refuses to sell him for any price. Amy later plans to return and steal Spartan from the auction house, and Ty tries to talk her out of it, saying it's a felony. This is actually untrue in Alberta, as indictable offences are applied in Canada. This is one of a limited number of regional errors in this show. In the end, Ty reluctantly agrees to help her that evening. Ty gets caught and taken to jail, where Jack bails him out, but he may still be convicted. Jack and Tim track down Wes and force him to sign a bill of sale, returning Spartan and preventing similar problems for Amy in the future.
Jack also talks to Constable Rodriguez, who promises to destroy the file on Ty's theft attempt. Ty instead has to do hours of community service, and Amy is grounded until further notice. Mallory's horse, Copper, is scared of her because of her "goth" look, so she returns to her normal style by the end of the episode. Lou is apprehensive of revealing to her family that she is dating an oil guy, and goes to extreme measures to avoid them seeing her with Peter. Caleb gets his rodeo card, and Val offers him a sponsorship to go on the road and stay away from Ashley.
Caleb debates whether to take it, and talks to both Ty and Kit about it. In the end, he decides to go, and does so at the end of the episode. Spartan refuses to jump for Amy and she is suffering from the trauma of having him stolen, so Amy takes him to Marion's Aboriginal Canadian friend Victor Whitetail who helps people connect with their horses. He helps Amy process her feelings and heal, using traditional Aboriginal methods. Victor was more than friends with Marion after Tim left. Peter books the entire dude ranch in order to spend time with Lou, who continues to keep him a secret from her family.
Peter is forced to tell Lou he has an ex-wife when he has to take care of their dog, Max. Lou promises to let him meet her family, now that she knows more about his. Ty breaks Harley while Amy stays at Victor's, but gets into a fight with Kit when she tries to show him her methods. Later, Ty breaks up with Kit, realizing he has feelings for Amy; when she returns, he tells her he can't continue being only friends.
Ashley mopes around because Caleb hasn't spoken to her since leaving for the rodeo circuit. Ty tells Jack and Amy that this winter is very hard on the mustangs in the mountains, and Amy wants to go feed them. Jack says it will make them dependent on people. At dinner, Mallory reveals that Ty has earned his high school diploma and later tells Amy that he's at a crossroads, and asks if Amy has any plans. She replies that she's working on it. Her method is revealed when we see Amy talking about sneaking up to the fishing cabin with Ty to feed the horses, which will also give them a great opportunity to talk.
Jack comes into the barn to tell them that it's now necessary to feed the horses, and the three of them can go up that weekend. However, Lou has weekend plans and Mallory and Jake have nowhere to stay, so Jack winds up looking after them. This leaves Amy and Ty free to follow through with their plans, in the open.
When they arrive, Amy and Ty spread out the hay for the horses, and Ty collapses after thinking he sees Ghost. This is the second time that Ghost shows up when Ty is in danger. Ty develops a high fever, but no one else can reach the fishing cabin because the highway is closed. Lou was heading to a spa with Peter along one of the mountain highways, but they were forced to turn back due to the closures. Lou made an attempt to tell Jack about Peter, but Mallory and Jake spilled something in the other room, and Jack took them to Maggie's.
When they return, Lou introduces Peter to Jack, who is incredibly unhappy that Lou is dating an oil guy, even calling him the enemy. However, after Amy contacts Jack via the cabin's shortwave radio, Peter organizes snowplows to clear the highway in the morning, and Jack grudgingly accepts him. Amy cares for Ty overnight, and his fever eventually breaks.
It turns out that Ghost really was there, not a hallucination of Ty's brought on by illness. Upon seeing Ghost outside, the pair go out to greet him, and Amy begins to talk about what Ty said. She agrees they can't just be friends, admitting that she loves him.
Ty finally tells Amy his feelings for her. Meanwhile, Val gets her test results back, and they are negative. Val tells Ashley that she sponsored Caleb, which causes Ashley to become upset with her mom and Caleb. When he returns to his trailer, Ashley kicks him out. Later, Val is driving along, and pulls over to answer her phone and discover that she needs further tests. Jack gives Tim a loan, since Tim was thinking of selling land to Val to be able to afford to continue after losing his herd of cattle, which would turn Val into Jack's neighbour on both sides.
Once they return to Heartland, Amy and Ty get cozy on the couch. He makes Amy say she loves him again, and they kiss. When a coach bus and a horse trailer collide on Highway 95, they block the route for Amy's school bus to get to her high school. Ignoring a command to stay on the bus, Amy goes to help Caesar, a grey gelding with Olympic prospects, stuck in a barbed wire fence. Amy calms him down while his trainer, Stuart Forrest, cuts the barbed wire to free him.
When Amy turns around, a crowd has gathered to watch, with several individuals filming her. One of these recordings is presented on the news, causing Heartland to become famous overnight. Amy struggles to keep up with the pressure while trying to heal Caesar, who is spooked by loud noises, cars, and horse trailers after the accident.
Amy earns the nickname "Miracle Girl", which she likes even less than the comments of "horse whispering" when people talked about Marion's and her gift previously. Ty begins to question his decision after his first job with Scott was to help at the scene of the accident, which included the euthanasia of a few severely injured horses. Caleb punches Ty for hurting Kit, saying that he had warned him not to. Jack lets Caleb stay in the loft with Ty, as Caleb is living in his truck, unable to get his trailer back from Ashley.
She starts working at Maggie's to afford to live on her own. Amy and Ty make plans to get Ashley and Caleb back together, so Ty doesn't have to listen to his snoring. Lisa comes back from France and asks Jack if he misses her when she is away. Jack explains that he misses her, but there's a lot going on at the ranch to occupy his time.
Tim buys a new herd of cows with some of the money that Jack lent him. Jack gets upset, but Lisa tells him that he can't tell Tim how to use the loan. Jack asks Val about her deal with Tim, and she says there isn't one. He also asks her how she's feeling, and she says that her doctor says she is in remission, but "this blood thing's a tricky customer". This seems to imply that Val had one of the blood cancers leukemia , lymphoma , or myeloma which was treated successfully in the time between seasons.
Val hasn't told Ashley, not wanting to worry her, and she thanks Jack for taking her to her appointments, saying he is a true friend. Amy finds herself caught in a family crisis when she tries to help a year-old girl, Taylor Kennedy, and her horse Trooper recover from what appears to be a freak accident. Taylor was in a full-body cast after Trooper started galloping apparently out of the blue, and she fell off.
Trooper also lunges at Taylor when they first arrive, and Amy notes that she has only seen this with abused horses. Ty thinks it is unlikely that a young girl would abuse her horse, but Mallory cautions that they shouldn't underestimate Taylor. After Amy has been working with Trooper and Taylor together for a while, getting her to spend time with her horse and then grooming him together, she assesses that the horse is fine, and that perhaps the problem lies with Taylor.
Amy also finds out that the Kennedys are getting divorced, and that Taylor will go to any lengths to get them to stay together. Taylor also almost hurts Trooper one night while he's in Heartland's care, advancing on him with a large branch in hand, while Mallory looks on. She also gets on and hits him with a riding crop to make him gallop like he did during the accident. Amy stops them before they reach a cliff, but then Taylor starts running. Amy catches her and reveals that she's pieced together the mystery.
When they return to the ranch, Amy takes Kate Kennedy aside and tells her that her daughter needs some professional help Amy says she can help Trooper, but she can't help Taylor. Amy offers to take care of Trooper while Taylor's problems are sorted out, however long that takes. In the meantime, Heartland continues to be very busy thanks to Amy's reputation as the "Miracle Girl", meaning that Jack is making extra pens behind the barn to deal with more horses, and Lou and Tim are thinking about expansion plans for the dude ranch.
Amy is also treating Roxy, a horse that is barn sour meaning she is reluctant to leave her stall. Ashley and Caleb continue to be at odds, and Amy brings Soraya into her and Ty's plans to get them back together. The two girls talk to Ashley, but she has figured out what they are up to and why , and asks them to stay out of it.
Lou continues to try to keep Amy's schedule manageable, but Tim continues to interfere, promising service to people that Lou says will have to wait. Jack's truck breaks down more and more often, causing Lisa and him to miss a wedding they were supposed to go to. Lisa and the rest of the family try to convince him to upgrade. However, he continues to complain about the truck, its seat settings, its lack of comfort, etc.
He becomes upset, and takes the truck up to the fishing cabin. The family can't understand why Jack is so attached to his old truck, but the audience learns through a flashback sequence that Jack's late wife, Amy and Lou's grandmother, Lyndy bought him the Chevrolet Cheyenne 10  as an anniversary gift early in their marriage.
In the meantime, Amy is trying to help a horse named Duke, whose stable-mate died recently, by trying to get him to bond with Pegasus. Mallory and Jake stop by, looking for Kramer, Jake's black-and-white paint cow pony, who has a habit of escaping from pens by jumping the fences. When they find him, they ask Amy to solve his problem. Amy recognizes that the horse actually jumps fences without provocation, simply because he loves to jump. Amy's solution is for Mallory to take Kramer around a jumping course regularly, to keep his extra energy in check and make him behave for Jake's family.
Kramer also helps Amy with Duke, because the two horses become fast friends. She is then able to get Duke to socialize with the other horses and to get over his grief. The end-of-school dance is also coming up fast, and Amy and Ty are supposed to go together. Amy was going to use one of Lou's old dresses, but Lisa gives her a beautiful turquoise gown from Paris.
Ty is worried because he doesn't know how to dance, so he takes lessons from Lou and Peter, who's back from a business trip to Dubai. Amy and Ty head out to their dance, but Ty's truck breaks down. Instead, they wind up dancing in the bed of the truck, and Ty presents Amy with a promise ring. Ashley asks a rich boy from a private school to go with her as a date to the dance to make Caleb jealous. Caleb hitches his trailer to his truck, and tries to pull it away, but he and Ashley wind up laughing about it before she drives off with the other boy.
Jack's problems with the new truck are solved when he finds a used truck, much like his old one, but in much better shape. Old Goldie the old truck is brought back to the farm as a "lawn ornament" and sits beside another old, dead truck. Something is scaring the horses at night in the Hanley Barn and Amy is called in to investigate. At first, Amy thinks it might be the feed, but Mr. Hanley rejects this suggestion as he'd already talked about it with the vet.
Amy agrees to come back that night to investigate further, and Ty comes with her at Jack's request. Meanwhile, Badger returns to Heartland, having run away from his foster home to see his birth parents, but they had moved without leaving him any contact information. He talks to Ty about it, saying that he needs somewhere to stay overnight. Ty lets him stay temporarily, and Mallory finds Badger sketching by the lake.
Both seem interested in each other, as Badger almost tells Mallory she looks more grown-up than before, and Mallory asks about Tara, who Badger seemed to be dating when they first showed up in Season 2. Clint stops by looking for Badger, and Ty pretends he hasn't seen him, to give Badger some time to cool off before having to return to his foster home.
Mallory steals food for Badger, and the story returns to Amy. She and Ty are at Maggie's, and Ty asks why everyone thinks the barn is haunted. Soraya, Amy, Ashley, and Mallory recount the tale: A young man was working at the Hanley place, and fell in love with the farmer's daughter. One night, the barn erupted into flame and all the horses, as well as the young man, died in the fire.
Shortly thereafter, Mr. Hanley's parents bought the farm from the previous owners and they built a new barn on top of the original's location.

This sets in motion a series of strange events, which results in some unusual team pairings. This is a supremely effective, deeply unsettling gothic horror story about small town secrets. The Death and Life of Schneider Wrack , by Nate Crowley The story of a man executed for a crime he might not have committed, then raised as a zombie to work aboard a trawler ripping apart sea monsters on a bottomless oceanic hellworld, only to regain his sapience— Schneider Wrack is well on the weird part of the scale.
It Devours! After the End of the World , by Jonathan L. Another result of these events: the Elder Gods are more or less present, the Necronomicon has been found, and the world is in the iron grip of fascism. Our heroes try to continue their lives as best they can in this new land, until events set them on the trail of madness, insanity, and occult forces once again. Meddling Kids , by Edgar Cantero The Blyton Hills Summer Detective Club were once teen sleuths who spent their vacations busting pirate sheep smugglers and money-grubbing crooks in rubber masks all through their quiet hometown—until they investigated the mansion on the island in Sleepy Lake.
The inexplicable horrors they experienced there haunted them for 13 years, driving one to suicide, another into an asylum, and two more to drink. When new evidence suggests their traumatic shared hallucinations in the mansion might actually be true, the surviving members, their dog sidekick, and the ghost of their former friend head back to Blyton Hills for one last crack at the case. The co-authors remain true to their characters, creating a host of men and women with agency and intriguing character arcs to operate within their fantastical, otherworldly framework.
Philip, the former lead singer of Detroit rock band the Danes, was a washed-up recording engineer when the army decided to bring his band back into their service, tracking down a mysterious sound in the African desert. Cutter builds suspense by introducing the three protagonists in their broken, post-Little Heaven states, then flashing back to show how they were undone by the deals they made with the horrifying evil residing in the huge obsidian monolith the cult worships.
He also fills the book with mix-and-match creatures, creepy undead children, sinister occult practices, and more horrors to keep you up nights, just wondering if that noise outside was made by the wind, or by a bear with six bird heads stuck to its shoulders. Probably just the wind…right? Machado walks the line between the beautiful and the disturbing, wringing arresting images out of green ribbons, girls with bells sewn over their eyes, and yet more bizarre plot elements.
These four short novels share a connective thread: despite the bizarre natural phenomena they explore, it is the human monsters that truly terrify. Like thunderclouds gathering, each novel forms a cloud of dread and foreboding, until the terrible events finally rain down on the hapless, imperfectly human characters. These are four tightly plotted, unnerving examples of the talents of a dark fiction master at his best, even with a much smaller page count.
