  Author:   Dahlov Ipcar    
  Publisher:  Islandport Press

A baby and a foal are born on the farm, on the very same day. Together Johnny and Big Betty grow up learning to work through all the farm’s seasons, planting, plowing, mowing, cow herding, and ice cutting. But Betty grows quickly and Johnny grows slowly. By the time Johnny is a young man, Betty is an old horse. When Johnny realizes it’s time to replace Betty with a tractor, he must decided what to do with his beloved horse. One Horse Farm, first published in 1950, tells the story of a boy and a horse who grow up together on a farm and watch the world change around them. It’s a book that comes from the heart for legendary Maine artist Dahlov Ipcar, who lived on a farm in Georgetown, Maine, for more than 70 years. “It was the life I lived,” she said.
