This is the extraordinary tale of a little workhorse, who, after being born in obscurity, becomes one of the greatest breeding stallions of all time. In this true story Newbery Medal-winning author Marguerite Henry and artist Wesley Dennis celebrate the life of the only horse ever to establish a breed all by himself -- the Morgan.
A little pint-sized cob that nobody wanted grows up to run faster, trot faster, and pull heavier logs than any horse in Vermont. He becomes the father of the famous family of Morgan horses. From the dust jacket
