A born horse lover the only thing I wanted as a child was to be a horse. I have been very fortunate to have had the opportunity to spend my life with horses. With their intelligence, wisdom, humor, and loyalty they have influenced my life in so many ways. From the strength of my gentle giant Draft horses, the sheer willpower of Marvin the orphan colt, the humor of Rats, the total trust of the blind mare, Sweetheart, to the undying patience of Ringo the pony, these are their stories. Each, in their own special way, has a lesson to offer and an inspirational moral to their story.
