I read on FB Jaime Ford will be there. I wish I could tolerate travel more than I do so I could hunt down a signature.

I'll be interested to see how the horse community receives that book. There's a lot of debate within the horse world about what to do with mustangs in the wake of illegalization of equine slaughter in the US, which led to a boom in the horse population, just as the recession hit. You suddenly have people who can no longer afford horses, slaughter removed as an option, and a subsequent increase in neglect cases. Meanwhile, the cost of hay and feed has gone up. In other words, you have fewer resources to be shared by more individuals. It's not pretty, and you might be surprised at how many horse people are anti-mustang now. (I'm not anti-mustang, personally. I'm a fan of people practicing some restraint and not breeding so many horses.)
