Phantom Stallion E-Newsletter December 2015

Wild horse holidays aren't cozy celebrations, but this mustang in Big Summit Horse Territory of the Ochoco National Forest in Oregon is wild and free and knows just where to find food, family and shelter.

Dear Readers,

My new book WILD AT HEART: Mustangs and the Young People Fighting to Save Them, is coming up on its 3 month birthday! Since it popped into bookstores and libraries, I've been around the country, sometimes with photojournalist Melissa Farlow, talking to people -- young and old – about wild horses. We've accepted some awards, been on TV and radio, too, and that's wonderful because it attracts attention to a book that's all about saving real live mustangs.

If you don't already have your own copy of WILD AT HEART, it's not too late. Most bookstores either have it on the shelf or can order it for you, and of course it's available online.

If you're one of the first 20 readers who emails me at [email protected] with your mailing address, I will send you an autographed bookmark as a gift!

Frost outlined the wood grain of the boards under Ace's hooves as I rode out this morning.

All of my gelding's prancing and dancing proved he was as excited as I was to be out for a morning ride.

I hadn't ridden all week and I was about to explode with compressed energy. It got dark so early in December, that when I stayed after school working on the newspaper, then did my chores, there was no time left.
