The Red Pony is a four part novella. The first three chapters were published in magazines from 1933 to 1936. The book, published in 1937, has four stories about a boy, Jody and his life on his father's ranch. As the name suggests, horses and ponies feature in the stories. The boy is promised a pony and then a colt. The fulfilment of these promises result in sadness as well as the desired object. Jody learns a lot about life and adults through these sometimes harrowing tales. The stories have been made into a movie in 1949 and a television version in 1973. Though the main character is a boy and horses and ponies are central characters, this is not a book for young children.--DPC [Suggest a different description.]
