I'm still not sure how I feel about the ending of it. The final third of the book takes Will and the filly to an expensive polo-training barn in California, where he hopes to learn skills beyond his ranch and rodeo ones to break into the better-paying world of polo. (And he has purchased the filly with an eye towards training her up to play polo.) He becomes friendly with, although not really a part of, the group of workers who are barn helpers at the polo barn. In the end, he has to make a set of hard decisions regarding his family, the filly, and those workers. (I don't want to ruin this for anyone who decides to read it by going too much into the specifics there.) I'm not sure that I would make the same decision Will does. I can admire him for his choice - I'm just not sure I'd do the same in his shoes.
Moving on, I've picked up Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte, and I'm about halfway thru that. Mostly I'm learning that children of any era can be horribly spoiled and nasty. (Not a news flash.)
