The Promise in 'Plan B'

The Promise in ‘Plan B’ is the first inspirational book that inspired me to finish it. This is because Ms. Farr’s book is more personal than others and not at all pompous; I mean her horse helped write it. She, Mary, not the horse, certainly relates…

Horse Book Review: War Horse

With all the hype and previews of the movie War Horse swirling around me, I was instantly curious about this story.  Any horse movie usually catches my attention, and I can't wait to see it.  Judging from the movie previews I decided that I should read the book first...just in case there were any very sad scenes I would be ready!  Truthfully, I needed to know if the horse died.  I don't tend to handle animals dying very well...ha.

This book written by Michael Morpurgo was a quick…

I loved meeting the horses and learning about each one's special personality. From the snake wrangler to the ranch manager, you will find each horse delightful. This book clearly…
