|Michael "Mi" Taylor|
|Name||Michael "Mi" Taylor|
|Portrayed By||Mickey Rooney|
Mi, the son of Dan Taylor, was a jockey in his earlier years, but was involved in a crash during a race at Manchester that tangled up several horses and killed a fellow jockey. This event caused him to stop riding, and just become a drifter that went from town to town finding homes to reside at temporarily (in most cases, stealing a bit of money). One day, he finds himself resting at the sign that directs to Sewels. On her way home from school, Velvet Brown meets Mi, and talks with him. Suddenly, their conversation is interrupted when Mr. Ede's gelding escapes. Velvet runs to stop the horse, which she does successfully. From there, Mi continues walking towards the Brown family's house, as he knew his father, Dan Taylor, had worked with Velvet's mother.
