Chapter 4 of All Creatures Great and Small has Dr. Farnon and Herriot leaving the Sharpe farm and Dr. Farnon decides it would be nice to take a different way home. On the way they stop at a pub and Dr. Farnon offers Herriot a job that comes with room and board. It is a better deal than most of Herriot's classmates. They drink long into the night and a patron, inebriated himself, shares a marshmellow remedy for curing a lame horse. Herriot thanks the man, then follows Dr. Farnon back to the Vet clinic.
