View Full Version : Horses in Writing

If you joined me for my 'Jubilee Spotlight' on 16th June you'll remember I mentioned that I featured Harri and Sally in my story for the 'Song Of The Muses' series from The Wild Rose Press.
Sally was my little endurance mare who sadly died a couple of years ago at the grand old age of 34, and I thought it would be nice to immortalize her as Terpsichore's fictional horse, Sal in my story for the series 'Dancing With Fate'. One of the other authors in the series, Masha Holl, who wrote about Urania in 'The Brightest Heaven' made this picture of Terpischore and Sal.


I used Harri as my hero Myrddin's horse. It seemed quite fitting that Myrddin would ride a black Welsh Cob. I'll probably feature T'pau in the historical Western I have on the 'back burner'. I won't be able to use her full name though, since T'pau was the name of Spock's grandmother in 'Startrek' and I don't want to risk infringing any copyrights., so I'll use her 'pet' name, 'TipTop'

Have you featured your own animals in a story? If so, I'd love to hear about them.
