Legs, the Journey of an American Thoroughbred by Laura Farrar


He was born to equine royalty in beautiful Bluegrass Country. But the bay colt known as Legs by his friends, would not enjoy a life filled with the luxury and promise expected with such bloodlines. Instead, his life would become a journey as a racehorse, eventer, and trail horse. Ultimately, Legs’ courage would be tested far beyond that of the track. This is a story of friendship, loyalty, love, and courage as told from the horse’s mouth. As in the classic horse story, Black Beauty, the reader is carried away by the story of Legs as he makes friends and enemies, is owned by people, both good and bad, and ultimately expresses views of life relevant to both humans and animals. The exciting narration of racing, dressage, jumping, and the relationships between horses is sure to captivate horse lovers of all ages. A must read for all animal lovers!


WOW, I read all sorts of books and got this one because one, I know the author and two we meet rescuing horses from an Oklahoma kill lot…  as, someone who reads and reviews books regularly, I wasn’t sure what to expect, as so many self-published books aren’t worth the money, you pay to read them.  
This book has it all… great story line, very well developed characters; the flow is perfect.  I found no errors, which is a pet peeve of mine. You become part of the story, laughing, crying, and getting angry.
This is the type of story animal lovers will enjoy reading.    I don’t give 5 star ratings often, and this one is ticks all the boxes for one. Once I started reading I didn’t want to stop reading.
