    Lovely modern day version of the archetypal Black Beauty story horse narrates his life as he is sold to a series of owners and makes friends along the way, learns lessons In this case, Macadoo is a Belgian draft horse, which is a different and interesting choice for a horse story His mother imparts lessons to him about his breed, that they were important for humans, used in clearing land and doing all sorts of work and that his job will always be to be strong and to heal people Yes, the story is [...]

    Just coming off a film festival from a titled film, Red Lines, about the left behind affairs of Syria, amid, much death, destruction, and forgotten behind a cruel dictator what does that have to do with Amateau s story of Macadoo The world needs us now than ever to bring a gentle peace Together, side by side, as we have for centuries 179 If you are observant enough, and take in the gentlest and deepest lines of this story, you will see this story is not just about Macadoo the beautiful Belgian [...]

    Macadoo of the Maury River is a sequel to one of my favorite horse books, Chancey of the Maury River Macadoo s story can stand on it s own, but if you haven t read Chancey, I highly recommend it Macadoo is for ages 8 12 and a story the entire family can enjoy It s told through Macadoo s point of view in the tradition of Black Beauty, The One and Only Ivan and Chancey The author does a terrific job weaving the story of a Belgian colt who escapes being sold for horse meat in a kill auction to a be [...]

    I liked this book however I found it very sad, especially at the beginning What happens to horses no one wants makes me sick to the heart This is the story of a young Belgian colt, his trials and how he learns his place in life, to help, heal and mend people The old saying that the outside of a horse is good for the inside of a person is true Ultimately this book tries to teach us not to dwell on our losses but to look toward the future When one light goes out another one come on No greater way [...]

    I learned a lot about horses from this story, spoiler alert, horses are raised and used for many reasons That being said, this is a beautiful story full of the sadness of separations and the sweetness of the love that can be found all around us I like that the author writes about places familiar to me because I live in Virginia such as the Maury River the Lexington riding center Macadoo and his horse friends are as great to get to know as the human characters This story touched my heart.

    I loved this book The story is about a young Belgian horse whose journey though his young life is full of heart breaks and life lessons and well as good friends You find yourself hoping the next fate this horse encounters will be the way your heart wants it to turn out The book is written for 8 12 yr olds and tells the story from the horses point of view It is very good and will bring some awareness to the trials of life these young kids in the story go through.

    I enjoyed reading a story from a horse s POV The author took me on a journey through the life of a Belgian and I learned a lot about the breed s capabilities I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in therapy horses and what it takes to be one.

    OK, but it seemed to have a very long plot, like Spirit Good thing happens, bad thing, good thing, bad thing, and so on.
