Bonnie and Sam are best friends who love horses. They befriend the ponies and horses in their Austrialian townexcept for one, Drover, who used to be wild. All she dreams about is getting back to the mountains to be free. One evening, when a wild, mountain horse—who could be Drover's twin—comes face to face with the cantankerous, corralled Drover, both horses get their chance at a new life. Illustrated with lively watercolor throughout, this endearing tale is a sure hit.

The Silver Horse Switch - Roland Harvey



Bonnie and Sam knew all the horses and ponies in Currawong Creek. They were horse crazy!

Sam’s real name was Samantha. She lived with her dad, Bill, in an old house that overlooked the creek. Bill Cooper was the local policeman.

    This chapter book is the first in the Horse Crazy series, set in the Australian bush. Best friends Bonnie and Sam love horses, and they ride and care for their family and friend’s horses every day. The only horse that does not seem to like the girls is the , Drover, Sam’s father’s silver horse. Drover bucks them off when they try to ride her. She doesn’t even like the girl’s to pet her mane. One day, a herd a brumbies (wild horses) run near the ranch. One of the brumbies, a silver horse identical to Drover, leaps over the fence right next to Drover. Moments later, Drover, leaps over the fence and joins the brumby herd. The next morning, the girls sense something different in Drover. She seems friendly and she smells different too. The girls notice her cracked hooves and scars on her legs, and they realize that this isn’t Drover. The girls instantly fall in love with this new, friendlier Drover and decide they must find a way to hide the horse switch from Sam’s father. They file down the new Drover’s hooves, they comb her mane and they practice riding her with the saddle. Finally, the day arrives for Sam’s father to ride Drover. The girl’s are nervous, but when Sam’s father mounts the new Drover, he doesn’t seem to notice the difference. The girl’s secret is safe.
