Phin, a Shetland pony, has loved leaving the carnival to become a show pony in the big city, but when his owner loses interest in him, he is sent to a farm for unwanted animals and must find a way to make a home there.

McMillan Palgrave

Little Prince is the story of a pampered pale-gold Shetland pony who goes from rags to riches and back again, and discovers the true meaning of home.

If Dauphin, a pampered Shetland pony, seems to lead the perfect life in the penthouse suite of the city's posh riding stables, it's because he does. And if he seems a bit too self-satisfied—after all, he's won several trophies for his young owner, Isabella, and is widely acknowledged to be the prettiest pony in the city—it's because he is.

Dauphin leads a rich, comfortable life. But all that changes when his relationship with his owner takes a decided turn for the worse. He's suddenly sent away to a farm in the middle of nowhere, which is filled with the most unusual animals. And where, against all odds, he discovers the true meaning of home and family.
