October 18, 1976
When a horse riding accident paralyzes Nellie, Harriet blames Laura and wants to have the horse, Bunny, destroyed. Laura is able to hide Bunny from Mrs. Oleson for a while. Though it wasn’t her fault, Laura still feels guilty and services Nellie’s wishes. When Laura discovers Nellie was faking her injuries, Laura decides to take Nellie outside for some fresh air, and takes her to the top of the hill. Then, with a push by Laura, Nellie rolls all the way down the hill into the creek, where Nellie stands up shrieking, forgetting her “paralysis”. Laura is praised by Harriet Oleson for helping Nellie miraculously recover. Nels returns Bunny to Laura.
