Another BOOK BONANZA to help our Bucket Fund mares/foal pairs get to FREEDOM!

Well,the Bucket Fund story yesterday didn’t do so well for the mares, and that makes me sad.  So today I have gathered for sale the last of my horse books (and other things) to boost the Bucket Fund for these mare/foal pairs!

If you missed yesterday’s story about the BLM elder mares with brand new babies at their sides that have the opportunity to travel to freedom at Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary if we can get them there, click here to read that post.

2)  Letters To Strongheart Paperback – September 10, 2010 by J. Allen Boone

This first edition, out of print book is very hard to find… There are reprints, but not this version with this cover.  My copy is almost perfect but it does have a bend in the cover.  I saw this listed anywhere from $52 – $137.  You can get the facsimile reprint for $22.

If you don’t know the story, basically, it is a compilation of heartfelt letters from the author to the famous movie dog, Strongheart.  J. Allen Boone took care of the dog for a time and was so overwhelmed by the dog’s demeanor and presence, that he felt compelled to write this lovely memoir.  I LOVED this book.
