Dora at Follyfoot by Dickens, Monica - Amazon.ae
These books are aimed at younger readers but are still uncompromising in pointing out cruelty and neglect, as well as the hard work and cost of keeping horses, even those too old to be ridden. But when Dora sees the rangy, cream-coloured lame horse, Amigo, she is determined to save him from spending his last days pulling a heavy log-cart -- even if it means borrowing money from sly Ron Stryker. In 1951 she married Roy Stratton, a former US Marines Officer, and moved to the United States, where she continued to write.As a great-granddaughter of Charles Dickens, she was always destined to write.
