The book “Pie: An Old Brown Horse” by Kandy Kay Scaramuzzo tells the story of Pie from his very own point of view. The reader follows Pie's life from the time he had an accident that rendered him incapable of continuing his job as a cattle herding horse and learns about various incidents in his life. The gentle, slightly cocky brown horse is moved to a stable where the owner wonders whether anyone would ever be interested in buying such an old horse. She fattens him up, lets the wounds heal but for a while people always seem to be more interested in prettier, younger horses – until the “little one” takes an interest in Pie. The two get along very well but there are still quite a few adventures ahead in Pie's life. He'll have to live through a meeting with Akitas, he has to watch other horses suffer and even go mad and he also learns a different job: to be a riding horse, not just a cattle horse.
There is a lot going on in the life of that old brown horse. Reading the book “Pie: An Old Brown Horse” by Kandy Kay Scaramuzzo was at times funny, but at other times heart-wrenching and sad. The book is written in a relatively simple language and even if you are not a horse person, it will not be a problem for you to understand the book as many things about horses are explained by Pie himself. He seems to be a really clever horse and a very good observer of the world around him. It is a pity that the photos in the book aren't in color but they still add character to the story and it is very easy to feel that you actually know the horse yourself. “Pie” is a story for people who like animals and is a nice entertaining read.
