Best part of story, including ending: The story is about war, where man and animals both suffer. The story tells us how much a man can love his horse even he joins the Army to find him.

Best scene in story: When Albert whistles and his horse Joey comes to him by recognizing it at the last moment of the movie. That scene attracted my emotion most.
