If you enjoyed Sox' first edition of Backyard Horse Tales, take a look at Koda.
Like Sox he tells his story from a horse's point of view, but his story begins in the spring of 1846 and covers the first two years of his life. Good stocking stuffer for eight to twelve age group of horse fanciers. ( )

Horse Diaries: Koda is a novel narrated by Koda himself, a horse along the Oregon trail. Koda is close with a human counterpart, a young girl named Jasmine. Koda often separates from the pack and has mini-journeys along the way. The book is illustrated with pencil and black watercolor throughout. The book is a bit dry but has a nice array of subplots. I would recommend this book particularly for those looking for a good book about horses. I am not a horse person and thus my review might be a little biased. ( )
