Luna, The Mare with the Sky Blue Eyes by Dora Dillistone
Read the true story of Luna, a small mare rescued by The Horse Shelter near Santa Fe. She represents everyone who has ever felt alone, hopeless and unloved. The story tells us that we are all unique and have special talents. Luna's adoptive parent, author Dora Dillistone collaborated with Taos artist Jonathan Warm Day Coming to tell the story of a very special horse. The book has a sky blue silk cover and is beautifully illustrated with Jonathan's paintings. Each copy is autographed by Dora and Jonathan. A portion of every book will be donated to The Horse Shelter to help feed and care for the horses until homes are found for them.
