Sly Fly and The Gray Mare

Nobody understands Sly Fly, least of all other horseflies. In fact, they call Sly a “fly misfit” because he doesn’t bite horses as they do. Sly Fly just doesn’t fit in. Not to be discouraged, Sly and his unlikely horse friend, Gray Mare, hatch an ingenious scheme to keep other flies off of Gray. The story is humorous, and children will get a kick out of Sly Fly’s outrageous antics and attire.

Something’s stirring at the ranch, and Sly Fly is out of his mind with excitement. If only he could convince Gray Mare to take part. In this second adventure of Sly Fly and Gray Mare, see how they work out their differences and bring a special gift to those around them
