The Horse of My Heart
Shining coat flashing in the sun. Silky mane rippling in the wind. A toss of the head and the stamp of a hoof.
Few of God’s creatures are as noble and soul-stirring as the horse. Even those of us who aren’t lucky enough to have horses of our own seem to have an innate desire to connect with these beautiful, regal beasts. As children we read stories about them, collected models of them, and tacked posters of them up on our walls. Throughout history they have carried us and calmed us, pulled our loads and pulled at our heartstrings. They give us a taste of wildness and yet make us feel at home.
In this inspiring collection, you’ll meet horses who show up at the right time, who help their humans learn important truths, and who rescue the very people who rescued them. These true stories of horses and the people who love them are sometimes touching, sometimes humorous, and sometimes miraculous. Always they are inspiring, like the horses themselves. They will touch your heart, renew your spirit, and show you that surely God had us in mind when he created these magnificent creatures.
My thoughts: While I wouldn't call myself a horse person, I do admire them and think they are talented, majestic animals. This book of 30 stories about various horses and how they touched the writer's life is heartwarming to read through. I think the story of Flash and the Mystery of the Blue Hoof was my favorite, though I enjoyed all of them. This book would make a wonderful gift for the animal/horse lover in your family!
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
