War Horse Chapter 3 Summary

How It All Goes Down

  • Albert and Joey continue to bond, riding around the countryside together.
  • Meanwhile, Albert's mother tries to convince Albert that his father isn't a bad person. Wow, this is a Very Special Heartwarming Chapter of War Horse.
  • Thankfully, Albert's dad is here to screw things up before they get too sappy. He sweet-talks Joey, and lures him away with food, saying "I need the money, Joey; I need the money bad" (3.11).
