"Dexter by a Nose" is a beautiful story about a mixed-breed colt who dreams of being a racehorse. While almost everyone around him tells him it can't be done, Dexter is determined to prove them wrong. There's a timeless message in this book, about believing in yourself even when the odds are against you. I admit to getting a little choked up near the end, as Dexter begins to long for the simpler days of his youth.
I read stories like this as a child, and I still love them as an adult. I highly recommend this book.

"Dexter By a Nose" is a story by a talented author who is a worthy successor to Thornton W. Burgess, who also penned animal stories - not just "talking animal" tales, but ones that included furry characters with real human emotions and problems.
In this story, a horse named Dexter is taunted by others because he is different; he is "mixed" and not a thoroughbred and is even called a "mutt". How he overcomes these differences can serve as a model for young people who may also be "different" and who may be bullied by those who should know better.
