The joys and benefits of the horse-human relationship have long been espoused, but here, natural horseman Hayes goes a step further into the scientific and clinical reasons behind the success of therapeutic horsemanship programs. Wounded Warriors, autistic youth, those who have suffered domestic abuse are some of those who have been emotionally transformed by relationships with horses. Fascinating reading which should turn any skeptic into a lifelong horse lover, I hope.

This is the book I wrote for you

Instead of sniffing trees and posts and butts or eating litter

Too busy to chase the cat and chew

The leg of your new coffee table - so good

I wrote this book to show my love for you When you were out the house

I put my time to use and hope

My poetry and book sales will earn me Lots of bacon.

The Last Walk: Reflections on Our Pets at the End of Their Lives Cover Image
Not Available
ISBN: 9780226668468
Published: University of Chicago Press - September 27th, 2012

A mixture of compassion and essential information, The Last Walk is for anyone who has ever had to deal with the heart wrenching decisions that come at the end of a beloved pet's life. Jessica Pierce tells the story of the last year of her faithful dog Ody, and bravely confronts the moral, practical, and emotional issues that pet owners face as their animals decline. A customer recommended this book to me as one of the best she had ever read about pets at the end of their lives. When I finished it we both agreed that this book is beautifully written and incredibly sad but, most importantly, it is extremely consoling, and invaluable for anyone who has ever loved a pet.
