Call-Morin has owned horses for about 13 years, and said that people can learn a lot from the hooved creatures.
“Part of their essence is that horses have an integrity to them, a predictability; they don’t have a hidden agenda,” she said. “The heart of a horse, if you would relate it to a human being, would be somebody who is like a horse—loyal, strong in character has integrity and is true to their word.”
She added that she hopes her story will be a resounding voice in inspiring people to treat animals with respect and compassion.
“They (horses) are really emotional, considerate and kind, and they sometimes fall into the hands of people who don’t have the heart of a horse,” Call-Morin said.
“Heart of a Horse” is about 50 pages long and is suitable for children 9 years of age and older. It can be purchased at Corner-Stone Bookshop in Plattsburgh, Conroy’s Organics in West Chazy and in Vermont at Phoenix Books in Burlington and Essex and Underhill Automotive in Underhill, or by calling Call-Morin at (518) 726-6060.
