That's Not Hay In My Hair by Juliette Turner

New York City life had crammed sidewalks, gasoline-filled puddles, and angry taxi drivers, but Juliette enjoyed the towering sky-scrapers, the half-block walk to school, and the restaurant smells wafting into her bedroom. She had never cared for a horse, let alone a long-horn, when her mother announced their imminent move to a 300 acre ranch in Texas, where they would be caring for three horses, five dogs, twenty-five longhorns, and a cat … all by themselves.

Juliette couldn’t help feeling excited, even though she’d have to climb a hill to get a bar of cell-phone service. Soon she was running from bats and snakes, rescuing a calf from a twenty-foot ditch, medicating ponies, and having adventures so crazy it’s hard to believe they’re for real—but it all happened exactly how it’s written.

Get ready for side-splitting laughs, heart-wrenching tears, and surprising life lessons learned down on the farm and shared by fourteen-year-old Juliette Turner. @goodreads



This was a sweet, funny, and sad children's book. I enjoyed it and I think children and some adults would enjoy it as well.

Jules mom is a writer and she decides to move them from New York back to the farm she bought a long time ago in Texas. She only moved them to New York to work on her writing career, but off they go back to the 300 acre ranch! I would love to have that much land for my animal refuge, but I digress.

On the farm they have Texas Longhorn, horses, dogs, and cats. Some of these are animals that just wandered up before they were there and while they were there. They already brought two dogs and a cat when they came back to the ranch. I love all of these animals :-)


Jules and her mom have to deal with all kinds of craziness going on the farm after the hired hand of so many years gets another job and they have to do it all themselves. They talk to all of the animals that have been there forever and the new editions with the babies. My favorite and their favorite is the palomino horse Maggie. She's so sweet and beautiful.


Luckily they have a man across the way they can call on to help them several times throughout the book. There is also a very sad part and I said I wasn't going to cry today but I did!!!!!!!!

Like I said, I think this is a great book for children that love animals and I would recommend for them.

*I would like to thank HarperCollinsPublisher and BookLookBloggers for a print copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.*
