Backyard Horse Tales:Sox (2nd Edition) was a story that I enjoyed after a long time. Horses are very special animals in so many ways and their rapport with humans is the subjects of many books and films. It is this which forms the main theme of the book.
The story brings out the feelings of a horse – something that we perhaps take for granted. Told by Sox, the horse – the story is emotional and inspiring. It teaches us that we could learn from horses. The bond between Emma and Sox is one that forges through time and grows stronger as years go by.
Sox is a horse that is different and so is Emma and perhaps this similarity brings them closer together. It is a story of triumph and tears. A surety that nothing is impossible and in spite of what life throws at you – you can beat the odds.
A story that brings back memories of Black Beauty – it is a
must read for those who love horses or in fact animals.
Recommended for children and adults alike, it is a story that
will make you look at life differently. Definitely a book which
will leave you a little more knowledgeable about horses,
relationships and life in general.
