“Not for nothing have I learnt to do eleven, whole, mind-shattering bucks.”

Monday May is a spirited, chestnut mare, born to be a racehorse. Having taught herself how to kick, rear and bite, she is determined not to be broken in, and do everything herself without the help of humans, preferring to win a race without a jockey.
She is soon sent off for “re-training” but never loses her high opinion of herself and her wonderful abilities. As the book progresses, she gets nearer and nearer to the “meat man” until there is an unexpected rescue.
This book is suitable for adults as well as children. Written in a humorous fashion, it tells how in today’s world, there is still much ill-treatment of horses, often through ignorance, not intent.

“Monday May is an addictive novel and a must-read for anyone who loves horses. I wouldn’t want to ride her, but I couldn’t put it down.” Charlie Deutsch – Jockey.

Ro Collingborn is a dairy farmer, producing milk for the well-known Brinkworth Cheeses, in Wiltshire.
