Seen the movie? Now read the book! War Horse by Michael Morpurgo
The book is told from the point of view of Joey and you're first introduced to him after he is purchased by Albert's father. The book chronicles Joey's life on the farm and into the Great War. He has a close bond with Albert and when Albert's father sells him to the army, Albert vows that he will one day find Joey. For the most part the movie stays true to the book, but there are a few major differences between the two. I don't want to give anything away so I won't go into these differences.
