At Quiet Valley Quarter Horse Ranch, Sweet Lady gives birth to a foal named Catch a Winner, who plays, feeds, and is visited by a busload of curious schoolchildren.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4-- After her birth in open pasture at a quarter horse ranch in Texas, Whinny plays with the other foals and naps under her mother's protective eye. Foreman Ted's crew rescues a mare which dies of exhaustion, in a plot similar in pace and tone to the "Billy and Blaze" series (Macmillan). Black-and-white charcoal illustrations are very much in the C. W. Anderson style of clean, sculpted horse bodies in ranch scenes. The story loses focus when it digresses to a school field trip and Ted performs rope tricks. Before the sidetrip, Catch a Winner 's content of quarter horse care and uses will inform the picture book audience and catch beginning readers' attention; after, it becomes an adequate second purchase. --Patricia G. Harrington, Phoenix Public Library

From Publishers Weekly:

This short horse story revolves around three loosely related events: the birth of the foal Catch a Winner; the near-drowning and rescue of a mare; and a visit to a ranch by a class of schoolchildren, where they see mares and foals and watch the foreman perform rope tricks. Any one of these mild, minor episodes could have provided the subject matter for a picture book. Unfortunately, because the adventures are crowded together and somewhat carelessly narrated, the text lacks sparkle or resonance. Many of the illustrations are quite appealing--Peacock's perky mares and foals are reminiscent of Wesley Dennis's classic horse drawings. The pictures of people, on the other hand, are stiff and old-fashioned, giving the book a dated look. Ages 7-10.
