Laura I posted this on the other horse lists but I want to find it really bad so I'm gonna post it here, too...

I'm looking for this one horse book, maybe someone can help me. It's about this kid named Tom who works at a stable on a "volunteer" bases so he can get rides for free, and his friends do the same. Then his cousin lends him a horse called Chancy for the summer to take care of and in the end he gets to keep the horse because his cousin doesn't even care about it. It had a silver cover and a chestnut horse on the front and it was short, only about 110 pages.

Ella I love how it gives me recommendations and I find so many awesome books that I really want to read!BTW Marguerite Henry has really good books on horse related topics.

Sorry I haven't read any book like that but will look for it. Good luck!

JennLT Is it 'A Horse For The Summer' by Michelle Bates?

Yes! Thank you.


message 6: by JennLT (new)

JennLT Quite welcome Laura! I used to have a copy, but I think it was one that was culled the last time I had to downsize the collection of horse books. Really need a larger house so I can have more room for books...I very much prefer the paper ones to digital.

Yes! These are my exact feelings! I'm continuously making more room in my bedroom for my books. I LOVE having actually books, not digital copies that I am not attached to at all. Just last night I spent about an hour and a half taking the doors off a cabinet and turning it into a bookshelf. :D


message 8: by JennLT (new)

JennLT We've got 6 of the 5-shelf el cheapo WalMart bookcases and 2 of the shorter 3-shelf ones that are all full and then there are more books stacked on top and in front on some of the shelves and my husband keeps some of his in his studio. I would love to build floor to ceiling shelving the entire length of the longest wall in the basement and house all of them together instead of in 4 different rooms.


message 9: by Laura (new)

Laura That would be so epic, the floor to ceiling shelves. When I move into my own house I really hope I can get more shelves! I would be so happy. I only have 4 right now. I think I would like your house. xD


message 10: by Jessi (new)

Jessi I have a very small room so I put books in the closet :(


message 11: by Nikki (new)

Nikki Anderson I'm looking for a book I read probably 25 years ago. I have searched with no luck. Maybe someone here can help me? I wish I remembered more. It is about a girl who manages to capture a wild pony. For some reason her father (or perhaps a farm hand) convinces her to let it go and if it is meant to be it will come back to her. The horse never comes back. Sounds like a terrible story with that synopsis, but I loved it.


message 12: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Hi,

I clearly had the same idea as a few other commenters as I am also looking for a book I read as a child. The story took place in Argentina on the Pampas and was about a kid visiting for the summer and working on the ranch there/training horses/etc. If anyone has any suggestions of what the title might be, I'd appreciate your help!
