TBR. Of course, I read the original lo these many years ago. Spent a fair amount of time wanting my own Assateague pony, until I realized you couldn’t jump them. I chose not to endanger my rose-colored memories.
I am not alone in not going back, for whatever reason, “The vast majority of respondents had read Misty of Chincoteague. It was a whopping 92 percent. However, when I asked how many had read Misty as an adult, the result was only about 26 percent.” Saddle Seeks Horse – Misty of Chincoteague: Rereading a Classic Horse Book as an Adult.
Thank you for reading,
