By Michael Morpurgo
Joey went through many adventures, after a while with war he and Topthorn (Joey's friend horse) went into/brought into a small farm. They were found by a young girl named Emilie, she told her grandfather about them and fed the horses well. They took great care of the two horses. Emilie's grandfather didn't allow Emilie to ride horses because she could get very injured. She convinced her grandfather to let her ride and she rode Joey. That's when an army came to take the two horses. Her grandfather was worried because the hill was pretty high and she was on the other side of it. They took the horses and went on. Topthorn was killed in war, later in the story.
Near the end, Emilie's grandfather had bought Joey. Albert had just finally found Joey again. Albert and Emilie's grandfather talked for a while and made a deal. The deal was that Albert was to spread the word about Emilie, since people didn't really know her, and then he'd get Joey back. Albert did as he was told. They were back at the farm at last. Albert had gotten married and it ended at that point.
