You have described these horses in a way that makes me feel as though I had known and loved them myself. About to start the chapter on Ringmaster - no doubt I will be quite teary here. Thanks so much for such a wonderful view into the world of UConn Morgan horses.
This is a great story, well written, with fun illustrations. It tells the true story of UC Ringmaster, a Morgan stallion born at UConn. Follow him on the beginning of his journey. Even though I know the horse's story well, I'm looking forward to the next two books! sfstearns
I'm already 3/4 of the way through the book - it is fantastic! What a great job you did capturing the importance of UCONN's Morgans to the breed (and brought back lots of memories for me too). :)
