Fans love Erica Silverman’s touching series featuring an industrious young cowgirl and her mischievous horse. Spring is bringing about many changes on the ranch. New little critters are popping up all over the place and they’re going to need someone to take care of them. Kate’s just the girl for the job, but Cocoa isn’t sure he wants any new friends. So Kate teaches her best buddy a few lessons about playing nice and doing what’s right.
Cowgirl Kate and her horse, Cocoa, love getting up early and herding cattle on the range. They are the closest pals, even though they don't always see eye to eye.
The old witch wants a pumpkin pie. First she plants a pumpkin seed. She weeds and waters and waits. A tiny sprout pokes through the ground, and soon a small pumpkin appears. It grows, and it grows some more. When Halloween is only hours away, the witch decides it is finally time to bake the pie. But first she must somehow pull the huge pumpkin off the vine.
"Will put you to sleep"
Gently nudging his way into Kate's room, Cocoa declares that he no longer wants to live in the barn. The house is much nicer for a horse. So it's up to Kate to convince him that the barn isn't as bad as it may seem.
Duck is a great swimmer. She splashes around the lake faster than her friend, Gander. But Gander flaps his wings and flies higher in the sky than Duck. The two friends fluff up their feathers and shout at each other, “I am the champion of champions!” Soon they think of the perfect contest. The bird who stands still the longest will be the “forever champion.” But as they “freeze-in-place”, not even fidgeting a feather, along comes a host of troublesome visitors.
Get ready, because Cowgirl Kate and her horse, Cocoa, are back for more adventures on the range. These two best friends love to spend time together - they just don't always see eye to eye. When Kate decides it's time for Cocoa to get new horseshoes, her favorite horse has other ideas. And Kate might have to get sneaky to convince Cocoa to get new footwear.
