Making progress


The book now has a cover!

I am still working on some of the interior images, but the book is finally taking shape now. I still don’t know if I will make my July deadline, but I am pretty confident copies will be in my hands before the end of summer.

    Your dedication and knowledge is amazing. Anything you might need to help from France, just ask. Love this blog.

    Thank you all!

    And thank you for the offer, Brigitte! I have been so very fortunate that so many people in far-away places have offered to help with their native breeds. I wanted the information to be as complete as possible, and the books have been made better than they were by people so willing to share what they know.

    I must admit, though, that preparing the books has made me want desperately to visit many of the countries and see the historic stud farms in person.

    Hi, there! I am the sister of Mischala Walker (, owner of Joker’s Golden Boy (aka: Ben) and Rose Hill Cream of Wheat Bess (aka: Venus). I also manage her website. We are really excited that you will be using Ben & Venus in your book! If you need some large, high-quality photos of either of them, I can send you as many as you like. 🙂 Just drop me a line: Looking forward to the book! 😀

      Hi Amanda! I was so happy to get permission to use pictures of them. Venus is one of my favorites in the book. She is a truly lovely mare.
