On the cover:

Meike is a Friesian stallion who lives in a bachelor herd of three in the forest of the Northern California Coast. He is also known as "Little Guy," because when he arrived at six and a half months of age, he looked like a little Trojan horse. We just couldn't imagine that he would grow into a big stallion. Every morning he leaves his buddies and stands at the far end of the pasture, watching every car that comes down the road, waiting for me to arrive. The minute he sees my car he starts screaming and hollering. He is quite vocal and the consummate lap
dog. You can see more of him at www.ForestBoyz.com.
