‘HORSE DIARIES: DARCY’
BY WHITNEY SANDERSON
Darcy is a light gray Connemara pony with silver dapples. She’s fast and tough, whether she’s pulling a load of peat from the bog or riding around the rugged countryside with Shannon McKenna, her human family’s eldest daughter.
But when Mrs. McKenna needs a doctor, Darcy discovers a skill that will change her and her family’s life forever.
Like “Black Beauty,” this novel is told in first person from the horse’s point of view and includes an appendix of images and facts about Connemara ponies and Irish history.
