A Foal Called Storm


Jasmine is perplexed when she discovers a terrified foal in one of the farm’s fields. How did he get there? The animal is very young, scared and injured. While she, and then Tom, her best friend, await her vet mother’s attention, they try to calm him.

Thereafter, Storm, as they name the foal, needs to feed. How can they make him accept milk from a bucket? What’s more it seems he needs somebody/ something to calm him. Could Mistletoe, the farm donkey, help? Might a companion such as Truffle ease Storm’s terror too?

The hunt for Storm’s home begins. It seems there are horse thieves about, but a very young foal? However, Jasmine’s home is not the best place for calm detection. Dad is anxious about the dairy herd’s TB test results, while the family is enduring a visit from his aunt Eva (Evil). Then there is the endless equipment attached to the two house tamed dwarf rabbits that Jasmine has agreed to care for. What a lot to take on board!

A Foal Called Storm is the latest instalment from the Jasmine Green series. Like its predecessors, it is an entirely satisfying read, where we engage with the characters, situation and then learn about animals and farm life too.
