For those that love horses
I found the 18 short stories delightful, sometimes funny, sometimes sad, but always worth reading. There were stories about horse shows and horse races. There were stories told by the horses themselves (they talked). There were stories about fox hunts. My favorite was the horse race called "The 500 mile race from Deadwood to Omaha" by Jack Schaefer, who also wrote "Shane." The story is about a young cowboy and his mustang, and the problems he faces from the race itself, and from some of the other riders. It reminded me of the book called "Hidalgo" that was also a race and also about a coyboy and his mustang. It's easy reading except the stories about fox hunting, where there is a lot of English accent. Still, a good book; worth reading.
