She should have named him Trouble . . .
Captain is a very bad horse. Celestino, the farm hand, refuses to take care of him, and none of the barn kids will go near the little brown and white paint... More > who kicks and rears and bites.
“That horse will never be anything but trouble,” says Jenna, who boards her horse at the barn. “You simply must get rid of him!”
Everyone agrees, except for Kathleen, who rescued him from the slaughterhouse and can’t bear to send him away. Her best friend, Brendee, tells her to follow her heart, and Kathleen knows she has to find a way to tame the colt.
Even Locket, the burro, who’s friends with everyone, can’t find a way to help the little horse. The farm is in chaos, and when it seems things can’t get worse, Brendee gets sick and Captain is in a terrible accident and might die. Kathleen makes a difficult decision – she will stop saving horses.
Can Locket and her friends find a way to help Kathleen? Or is it too late for Captain and Locket’s Meadow Farm?< Less
A four-month-old horse is separated from her mother. In the middle of the night, thousands of miles away in Connecticut, Locket the burro hears a tiny voice.
“I want my mommy,” she hears... More > over and over again.
“There’s a mommy here who will take care of you,” Locket tells her.
Weeks later, the foal, Beatrice, arrives at Locket’s Meadow, sullen and angry. Although rescued from death in a slaughterhouse, all she can think about is how much she misses her mother and Canada’s green meadows.
David and Kathleen, the farm owners, try to help her but she grows angrier every day.
“She doesn’t look like my mommy,” Beatrice cries to Locket when the burro tells her Kathleen will be her new mother.
“But if you give her a chance . . .,” Locket says.
“I would give her a chance,” says another, deeper voice. “If only I could find my way there, I would give her a chance.”
Ernie, another foal, is days away from slaughter. Can Locket and her friends rescue a horse two thousand miles away?< Less
