Benny, the Biography of a Horse

Lothrop, Lee, Shepherd, New York, 1965, 191 pp, illus Gloria Gaulke

I have a feeling this might be non fiction: it’s the story of Benny, the author’s 17-year-old retired cow pony. Benny knew many tricks, and managed to win ribbons at Western showing just before he died, aged 33.
