In Season by Christina Wible is set on a breeding farm with the protagonist, FE (Effie) Booker trying to cope with challenging broodmares, tack thieves, a new vet and the new farm owner.

FE is a no-nonsense character who's childhood not only made her build walls around herself emotionally, but also made her a determined business owner of breeding and shipping horses. Her first love, though, is the mares and foals, and she is upset when an owner pulls out his herd.

Although some parts of the ending were predictable, I was pleasantly surprised by the final conclusion.

It is delightful to read such realistic details about the equine breeding industry since I bred Morgan horses for 25 years and spent two years as a manager on a NJ Thoroughbred stud farm.
