Wish you'd been there! Or there...
Can you believe that anyone would send this beautiful young horse to slaughter because of a leg injury? Jennifer and her family took in Diablo (we talked about the horse in MUSTANG MOON by the same name, but this is a much nicer Diablo), got the vet work done on his leg and then Jen started the long, gentle walking and bonding process.
Now, it's clear that Diablo loves and trusts Jennifer. Patience and kindness have paid off and Jennifer and Diablo WON their event -- in costume -- at the Battle of the Barns.
I had a super time at Clayton bookstore HOLD YOUR HORSES event. We talked about books and horses, watched my WILD ONES movie and made this cool 3-d wild horse mural which lives at the bookstore now.
I have the BEST readers!
Hugs to you all,

I wish I could have been there to see you in person! I admire you so much, especially how kind you are to your readers. No author EVER was or will be as amazing and involved as you! When you e-mail me you even use my name sometimes! I know you care!
I have the best readers in the world, so how can I NOT care?
Thanks for sharing Diablo's story with your readers.. he's Jen's dream horse :)
