In the beginning of the story, one of the three sons- Ivan, caught the magic mare that trampled down wheat on his father's field. This mare promised Ivan to present three foals in exchange for freedom. Later two of these foals turned into the steeds with golden manes while the third one turned into the Humpbacked Little Pony. The old greedy Tsar obliged Ivan to fulfill different tasks, and the Humpbacked Little Pony always helped him. And in the end of a story instead of the tsar Ivan dipped himself in three cauldrons of boiling water, boiling milk and ice cold water, and transformed into a very handsome young man and the Tsar only boiled in the first one...
