Did You Know?


When the props department was preparing Hollin Hall farm (the location used for Follyfoot farm) they needed a dead tree to use as the Lightning Tree. They found one and planted it in the farmyard. However they soon found that it developed buds because it was still alive, so whenever it was included in shot, any green leaves had to be removed to make it look dead. See more »

4 September 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I remember that when this programme first aired I had a crush on Dora and fully sympathised with her! Maybe I wished I could have somehow stepped into the screen and comforted her. Such was the involvement I had with the characters (especially Dora).

Recently I bought the DVD's of all 3 series and found that, despite my advancing years, that crush has not really gone!!! Inside we do not age and I am still that young man doting on a TV Character!!! The series has a beautiful innocence that cannot be replicated nowadays. Young people want action, and romance is now quite up front-so the shyness of the characters in this series may not be appreciated. I am not a horse lover in particular- I liked the series because of the characters- Ron, Steve, Dora, Slugger, the Colonel were all very memorable and the story lines, were gentle, emotional and absorbing for those with a little patience.
