WOW.. touching stories Apr 16, 2008
After reading this book about mares and how they are alfa, and how some of these mares have touched women and childrens lives it was tear jerking. I would recommend this book for anyone that has a Mare to understand a bit more of what they are like and how they can touch your lives. Looking forward to reading another book from betsy.
Notes from the compiler! Feb 6, 2008
I just happen to be the one who compiled the fifty stories for this book. Don't see any description of the book yet, so I'll add something on that. This is a collection of articles and stories by 39 horse owners. Julie Goodnight contributed an excellent answer for anyone with a Territorial Mares problem. Dr. Ron Meredith offers a delightful piece on "Gender Training for Mares." Then there are stories about mares who have touched their owners' lives in a special way. You will glimpse treasured moments between horse and human as they learn together and from each other, sharing the struggle and joy of building trust, respect, good communication and mutual dependence. Each story has biographical information on the writer, and a photo. Some stories definitely show the female connection between woman and mare! I am thankful to and proud of the many mare owners who contributed to this project!
