Set on a farm in rural Devon, Farm Boy is a collection of a Grandfather's reminiscences and stories touchingly told to his grandson.
Joey was the last working horse on the farm, and the apple of Grandpa Albert's eye. Joey was sent away from the farm to be a warhorse during the Great War. As told in War Horse, Albert joined the cavalry in order to find his dear friend Joey and bring him safely home.
Farm Boy brings us forward fifty years with Grandpa not only telling his grandson the story of Joey, but also revealing a shameful secret which he has held for years...
Set in Iddesleigh in Devon, Farm Boy lovingly evokes the bonds between farm and farmer; grandson and grandfather; horse and boy.
