Publisher's Summary

Dinky: The Nurse Mare's Foal is the story of one little foal's fight for survival after being taken from his mother within hours of his birth. Dinky takes us on a poignant trip through the heart and mind of an animal who was born for the sole purpose of producing milk in the mare. In the elite world of horses, Dinky was considered a byproduct: a junk foal.
Dinky's story will resonate with animal lovers, as well as anyone who has adopted. Although a horse, his story has been called an adoption story. The reader can follow him through heartbreak, cruelty, loneliness, and finally to happiness in his forever home. His story is based on true events. Each event, from the moment the author met Dinky, actually happened - though it is the author's interpretation of what he might have been thinking and feeling during the occasions described in his story.
His early life, which is unknown, has been fictionalized by the author and constructed through research and imagination. There are many wonderful animal rescue leagues. Many are very emphatic to these young animals, though some are not. Since Ms Bishop has no knowledge of Dinky's early days she used the latter to enhance the strength of his story. It will break your heart, open your eyes, lift you up, and teach you much about horses. It is suitable for all ages.

Loved it. Felt like I was there

I couldn't stop listening. This book hit every emotion. I plan on getting a set of nurse mare babies 2018( I had that thought before this book) . I currently own and ride a horse that was in the 99' batch from last chance. This helped get me ready to adopt.
