The Horse of My Dreams
True Stories of the Horses We Love
Truly the horse is one of the finest creatures on earth. In it we find embodied all of our own hopes and dreams. Our longing to live noble lives. Our need for companionship. Our desire to do good and helpful work. Our yearning to feel truly free.

You'll fall in love with a stray donkey who finds a home--and a friend. And so much more.
So make yourself a cup of tea, open up this book, and claim a few refreshing moments on a busy day for yourself . . . and the horse of your dreams.
