Episode 220
Title Daniel and Margaret Visit the Farm
Fireflies and Fireworks
Air Date July 4, 2016

Daniel Tiger visits the farm with his family where they start by visiting with Prince Tuesday and his cousin Chrissie. Prince Tuesday works with the horses on the farm.

Chrissie talks about riding horses and invites Daniel to pet her favorite horse, Peaches. After watching Chrissie ride Peaches, Daniel is invited to take a turn. Climbing onto the saddle, Daniel feels a nervous but is encouraged by his Dad: "When something is new, holding a hand can help you." Holding Dad Tiger's hand as he rides, Daniel feels more comfortable.

Daniel make-believes that he's a cowboy.

Near the pond, Daniel finds Ducky -- the pet he and his friends once cared for at school. He and Margaret feed birdseed to the ducks. When Margaret seems nervous, Daniel offers to hold her hand to make her more comfortable.

Before leaving the farm, Daniel takes another ride on Peaches -- this time feeling much less nervous than before.
