Horse Tails by Appaloosa Duke by Patricia Probert Gott

Appaloosa Duke is a horse story about bullying. Duke tells of his own life having to deal with stress and sadness at being bullied and teased from the time he was a foal in Idaho to being trained as a trail horse at a dude ranch in Wapiti Valley, Wyoming. Other horses could never see beyond his unusual dotted/spotted coat pattern and treated him harshly. Duke befriends a gimpy, arthritic horse named Boots and helps save his life and that of another old horse by standing up to a bear in their defense. Will the other herd horses scoff at his actions and consider him foolhardy? Or will he finally be recognized and respected for the fine, courageous horse that he always was?

(Lol yeah, sorry, I is already lefted lol!) Velvetstar hmmphed with an equal stubbornness, her ears flicked in irritation. "So much for my word being law," she muttered under her breath. The white and black shecat normally didn't care for being told what to do, but she now had an especially strong apprehension to following any orders from the two of them and rolling her eyes was the only response she had to Goldenstripes command to stay put. Velvetstar made a face that let all her irritation show when they turned their backs, (I just couldn't help it lol!) then waited until Goldenstripe had Lilywolf out of eyeshot before she turned and continued on her search.

What a nice chapter book for juveniles as this story demonstrates there is bullying among horses as well as people. I enjoyed this book because it also gives suggestions about how a horse (or person) could cope with bullying and how to handle the snide remarks and teasing. And the end result showed that once a horse, or person, got past Duke's different color pattern, he had wonderful character and personality and was an outstanding horse as he became the local hero. The story takes place on a dude ranch in Wyoming as Duke is integrated with 125 other horses and is trained to be a trail horse. I'd recommend for all horse lovers--of any age.
