I thought that this was a good book about a horse changing someones life. I could relate to it so much and i cried so hard in the end because i have had to do the same things (as the writer did) for some of my equine family. Have a big tissue box.
Keep a box of tissues close by while you are reading this book.
LOVED it!!! This is especially for horse lovers; the author knows the personalities and behaviors of mares and geldings. If you truly know the love you can have for one of God's most beautiful animals, this is the book you need to read!
I really enjoyed this book. I don't have horses but I think they are amazing. This book is for anyone, even if you don't know about horses, she explains what you need to know. It's such a good read, I recomend it!
