"Somewhere in time's own space
There must be a sweet pasture place
Where creeks sing on and tall trees grow
Some paradise where horses go,
For by the love that guides my pen
I know great horses live again."
by Stanley Harrison
This page is dedicated to horses who have once again found loving homes.
