And the Extra WorkEdit

It's Chestnut's birthday, Max and Caroline have prepared him a carrot cake. While Chestnut is munching on the carrots Max notices one of his shoes has fallen off. She mentions a blacksmith she used to date and tells Caroline she'll have him look at Chestnut. At the diner, Max tells Caroline the blacksmith has checked Chestnut's hooves and he has a hoof fungus which will require treatment, and he also needs new shoes. They take jobs as extras in a tv show filming in the diner to earn the money for Chestnut to be treated.
