Who Decides When a Horse Is No Longer Useful?
This five star Readers' Favorite is the story of  Pie, a working ranch horse well past retirement age. When he was injured, he was considered used up, with nothing left to give. At the mercy of those who owned him, he was sent off to be sold or destroyed, depending on his ability to recover. But Pie knew something the ranch owners didn't know: he was far from useless. This book tells the story of a horse who still had heart and soul and strength to give, and shares the amazing things he did in the second part of his life. Pie is truly one of the great horses, and you will get to know him and his amazing spirit as he tells you his tale as only he can, from his point of view. You'll be among the many people whose lives he touched, as you join his remarkable journey to prove that every animal deserves the chance to age with grace and wisdom.
The fourth of JULY is about inspiration and so is PIE

From the Author

Pie is a book that had to be written.  His story is one that needs to be told.  He had me put his memoirs to paper so everyone could share his life. He is the most amazing horse I've ever met. He has put his calming influence on so many people and animals, that he deserves the title,  "Merchant of Hope." This is book that is well liked in many genres.  I put it out as a nonfiction memoir, but children of all ages have enjoyed in the children's book category.  It is one that is at home in the land of horse stories as well.  Pie''s story is truly an inspirational book to be read and enjoyed by all ages. Not only is Pie's story about his redemption, he helps many others as well in his career as a therapy horse for special needs children and adults. His work with the autistic children alone is a stand up testament to his powers of healing. His story bears a striking resemblance to the Black Beauty that we all knew, loved and grew up reading.  This is a feel good story with a happy ending. You cannot leave after reading Pie An Old Brown Horse (That Knows What He Is Doing) and feel like you have been on an awesome journey of hope, love and second chances. Pie is still with us today at the ripe old age of 38, eating his alfalfa hay and demanding more carrots.  He comes out of retirement periodically to write a short story or a blog post that let the world know he is still around. Pie is one friend you will never forget. He is an amazing horse with magical powers in his ability to relate to the people who need him.
