Shadow: The Curious Morgan Horse


Shadow: The Curious Morgan Horse


Shadow is a young horse who is curious about everything. One day the farm's rooster tells her about a magic pond in the woods and Shadow wants to go find it. Her mother says no, but Shadow disobeys her mother and decides to explore the woods. She searches for the pond and along the way meets many different forest animals but soon gets into trouble. And when Shadow realizes she has become lost, she's afraid she won't be able to find her way home. A story that teaches an important lesson and has a happy ending, thanks to the adorable basset hound that comes to Shadow's rescue.
