Mint the pony, a gift from Grandpa Tom to his granddaughter, is out in a harsh Christmas Eve storm. As Tom is working to get Mint into the barn, he wishes to be a pony to communicate directly with Mint. Tom realizes that is why God sent Jesus to earth as a baby. Sensing Tom's epiphany, Mint gets up and walks into his stall. Tom joyously rides his tractor to church to join his family.
In the small town of Port Washington, on the Herman Horse Farm, lives a retired champion pony named Mint. Grandpa Tom owns the farm and is the horse trainer for all who live there. Mint is one of the only Christmas gifts he ever gave. Given to his granddaughter on her sixth Christmas, Mint has become a permanent fixture on the farm since reaching the age of thirty. During a harsh Christmas Eve snowstorm, while his entire family is at church (he wants nothing to do with Christmas), Grandpa Tom tries to bring Mint in from the field and into the warm barn. Mint refuses. After using every horse trainer's trick to lead the old pony into the barn, he fails. Grandpa Tom reaches the point of despair. Mint is starting to freeze and lies down in the field. Helplessly, he kneels over the freezing pony and whispers "If I were only a pony, I could communicate with you and lead you to safety." Alone in the field, Grandpa Tom's thoughts turn to Christmas and with clarity the meaning of the day enters his heart. For the first time he understands that as he wished to become a pony to save Mint, God needed to become human, to save people. He understands why Christ needed to come to earth. As Grandpa Tom's thoughts become clear, Mint stands up and walks into the barn towards his stall full of soft bedding and warmth. Grandfather Tom receives Mint's Christmas Message.
