James and the Hope family are enjoying their vacation in Ireland immensely. The food is yummy, the scenery is lovely, and best of all, wild ponies roam the beaches! Mandy and James try to learn all they can about the ponies – where did they come from? Are they really wild? And why is one of the foals wearing a halter? It looks as though it’s beginning to cut into her face as she grows…

Mandy and James decide that they need to remove the rope from the foal’s face before the blisters become infecte

This is an exciting and fascinating tale about the Connemara ponies in Ireland. We really enjoyed reading this book together and we will certainly look for more books in the Animal Ark series by Ben M. Baglio.

This story helps to bring to light the importance of protecting the wild horses from exploitation and tells a little bit about Ireland and the villages around Connemara. I like the mix of suspense and drama, with the historical background. And of course, our girls loved hearing about the p

Animal Ark was also another series that I read when younger because of my love for horse stories. Not my favorite series, granted, because there were only say 5 or 6 horse books in a series of 40 or more, and I also did not like the charcaters/plot as much as several other series. But I did enjoy it. Ages 8-12, primarily for animal lovers.

I really enjoyed this whole series as a child. Back then I'd devour each of the books as soon as I could get my hands on them.
