Shiloh

Book One, Story One

My Arabian gelding, Shiloh, and I first met when he was four years old. I traveled to Maryland to see his half-sister, Valle Girl, and perhaps purchase this Arabian mare. It was love at first site as I walked by this curious colt on my way down this man’s barn aisle! Shiloh captured my heart with his sense of wonder and personality. I could almost read his mind asking questions about who I was while at the same time craving my attention. Eventually, I bought both Shiloh and Valle Girl, and they still live at my farm. Shiloh is the favorite of many visitors to the farm, winning their hearts as well…he is a real character! Children have drawn pictures of him, and adults love him just as much. There was no contest to which horse would be in Book One, Story One, the first story of my first book, “Shiloh and the Barn Mouse”…it had to be Shiloh!

What Our Readers Say…

Kim McLain
Camp Hill, PA
‘Wolfie the Most Beautiful Pony in the World’ was my favorite in Adventures At Green Apple Acres because I strive to see the inner beauty in people and other beings. As an example, my favorite dogs have always been mutts — not classically built, with features that can be easily judged, like purebreds at shows — but scruffy, one-of-a-kind companions, with personalities as unique as their outward appearances. And when I was in school, I avoided the cliques of girls who seemed overly concerned with their looks and clothing. Instead, I gravitated toward those who may not have been perfect on the outside, but they had a brain and a sense of humor, which I found much more interesting than a pretty dress or impeccable make-up and hair. So, like the character John, I can appreciate someone for all they have to offer, and see past what meets the eye.
