When Sarah first arrived at Horseland ranch with her horse, Scarlet, everyone assumed she was a spoiled little rich girl—especially when she pulled up in a limo wearing expensive clothes! But when Sarah ruins her expensive jacket in order to save another rider's horse, the gang realizes that appearances can be deceiving.
In the middle of a beautiful countryside sits Horseland, a wonderful sprawling ranch. Riders who come to Horseland find exciting adventures in the surrounding mountains and acres of wild forest, creating great friendships along the way. With a large stable, a tack room, and best of all, an arena for training, Horseland is the greatest place around to board, groom, and show a horse.
No one knows all the ins and outs of Horseland better than Shep, the wise Australian shepherd. A herding dog by breed and instinct, it's Shep's job to keep the horses in line, and make no mistake about it, he rules with an iron paw. Although the horses don't always like it, they obey him because no one wants Shep nipping at their heels! Besides, when Shep tells the horses to do something, he's usually right. Shep simply loves Horseland. After all, it is a place where all the animals can talk to each other—as long as the humans aren't listening!
On this particular sunny day, Shep sits with Teeny and Angora.
"This is one fine place to call home," Shep says.
"Yes, Shep," agrees Teeny, a sweet, young, potbellied pig. "This place is really great." With a pink ribbon on her tail and a curious disposition, Teeny is a playful pig. She runs around neighing and snorting, pretending she's a horse.
"Teeny, no one's ever going to mistake you for a horse," says Angora with a sneer. Angora is a beautiful, fluffy cat, but she fancies herself better than the others. She's the cattiest cat you'll ever meet. "You look exactly like what you are," she tells the pig.
Shep shakes hishead. "You can't always judge someone by what they look like, Angora," he points out. "Take Sarah, for example. Remember when she first came to Horseland?"
Angora looks a little embarrassed. "Hmm . . . yes. Pity about that."
Shep smiles. "It just goes to show you: Don't be quick to judge."
The herding dog is right. He has seen it happen with both horses and humans. . . .Horseland #1: Welcome to Horseland. Copyright © by Annie Auerbach. Reprinted by permission of HarperCollins Publishers, Inc. All rights reserved. Available now wherever books are sold.
