The Winged Colt of Casa Mia by Betsy Byars

There’s no such thing as a colt with wings—is there?
When Charles arrives at his Uncle Coot’s Texas ranch from back East, he’s sure that books have taught him everything he needs to know about horses. He wants to prove he’s a cowboy just like his uncle, a retired movie stunt rider, who knows Charles is out of his element. But when a neighbor’s mare gives birth to a miraculous colt with wings, Charles and Coot realize that they both have much more to learn. They grow to love the colt, named Alado, or “Winged One.” Still, it’s no easy feat caring for a mythical creature, especially when it can fly. Can Charles and Coot protect Alado—and each other? This ebook features an illustrated biography of Betsy Byars including rare images from the author’s personal collection.
