When a young person loses a pet, it is a painful experience. This story is about a dying horse called Chestnut.
Before you decide never to buy such a depressing book, know that it has a remarkable moments. In the book, I mention the “Happy Hunting Grounds.” Native North American People (and others around the world) believe that all humans and animals will be reunited in the HH Grounds. The story has a happy ending. It also points out the role of unicorns. It is a story that gives hope in the fact of death.
I have also named the “Happy Hunting Grounds” as THE PLACE. It is a life after death location. I wanted it to be universal, so it is not called ‘heaven.’
BONUS FEATURE: HORSES, DONKEYS AND MULES
These are some of my favorite animals. In this bonus feature I have covered each of these breeds of animal. I have also looked at the Przewalski (the only true existing wild herself). Other wild horses are the generations of domesticated horses that have escaped.
