Om Uncle Jacob and His Four Nephews and Nie
The story is set in Kilkenny, Ireland. It is about an Irish farmer, who was very rich. He had a dream: that is of buying an Arab Stallion and train him to race in one of Irelands most prestigious races. He had four nephews and nieces who visited him and spent every weekend at his farm. Jacob loved them dearly and he would do anything for them. Uncle Jacob bought not one but many horses. The kids also became crazy about horse-racing and started jockeying when they were very young to become among the best riders in Ireland.
