The authors words are illustrated with colorful paintings accompanied by whimsical watercolors.
About the author. “Author, artist, horsewoman, Alice Billings is ‘the Horse Lady. Meeting her, talking with her, you sense this immediately. It’s not the scruffy hat, or the manure-bottomed boots, or even the bits of hay in her hair. It’s the look in her eye when she talks about her beloved horses. Then you look at her art and there is no doubt, all that emotion and feeling, color and line, just leaps from the canvas and captures your heart. As it surely has captured hers. Alice Billings’ artwork is joyous, vibrant, alive. It’s interactive. Makes you want to throw out your arms and just plain, hug a horse!.” [Read full story on Alice’s website, which also displays her artwork.]
