Mister Rogers arrives with a game of horseshoes which he sets up and demonstrates in the front room. As he collects the horseshoes, he recognizes that viewers are growing and sings You're Growing. Picture Picture shares a film about a person shoeing a horse.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin has the head from a horse costume and talks with Daniel Striped Tiger about how it takes two people to complete the costume. Moving on to the tower, Lady Aberlin continues looking for Handyman Negri who is to be the back end of the horse.

Meanwhile, Handyman Negri has found his way to the clock looking for Lady Aberlin. After sharing that the costume is for the King's entertainment, he moves on to the tree where Lady Aberlin is visiting Henrietta Pussycat. Together they work to complete the horse costume and head to the castle.

Inside the castle, Mime Walker is entertaining King Friday and Sara Saturday before the "horse" arrives and joins the performance. King Friday and Sara Saturday are delighted to find that the horse is Lady Aberlin and Handyman Negri in costume.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers explains that real horses -- much like people -- are all one piece and do not come apart.
