    Centurion and Emperador are baby horses the storks misdelivered.  They got blown off course and they drop the babies off at the next available barn.  The other animals tell them it's a big mistake, but the duck has been pining for children and she adopts them!

    Magnetic Press and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can grab a copy now.

    The Gamble Ranch owners decide they should be race horses.  They're growing up healthy and good looking, they'd be great at that.  But children don't always live up to parent's plans...

    They enter them in the race at the fair but they both come in dead last.  They move a lot in their running and don't run that fast.  They feel awful because they've let everyone down.  But they hear a band playing and suddenly they find their hidden talent.  They might not be able to run, but they can dance!

    The illustrations are done by Francisco Herrera and they're lovely.  There are actually horses named Centurion and Emperador at the Gamble Ranch and you can visit them.  The best message here is that you might not be able to do what others think you should but we all have our own talents.  Follow your passion and you'll succeed in the world.
