All eleven-year-old Pip wanted was a best friend. When Pip gets a horse for her birthday, she is delighted. She thinks that the horse she named Buck will be her best friend from the moment they meet. But she finds out that friendship does not come that easily. Her father gently guides her so Pip can discover how to make Buck a true friend.


Pip’s new friend, Buck, has a story of his own. After leaving his herd to move to Pip’s house, he is looking for a relationship to help him feel safe. He, too, learns that making a friend takes patience and understanding.
