Winter Pony by Krista Ruepp
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


When the long Icelandic winter is finally over, the farm horses are turned onto the summer pasture in the mountains. Anna has to say goodbye to her pony, Prins, for the first time. Anna is very scared that something will happen to her young stallion in the mountains, and she is right. One day a chestnut stallion attacks Prins and he is left lying injured on a cliff ledge. But in this atmospheric Icelandic horse story, Anna learns that her temporary separation from her beloved pony is very important for the young stallion, and that their friendship withstands the test of separation.
