Equitainment's Comments

What a Horse!! A real character, a cheeky devil, a hero and very, courageous. This is a top read for children and upwards, and its a keeper for me, in fact, the True stories series by Judy Andrekson is a keeper!

This one is special and so is the family that own Gunner. I did some searches on Gunner and I thought I would be able to share a link or two, but it is hard to find anything on him. Such a shame. If anyone has any info on him would love to see.

Product Overview

Each book in the True Horse Stories focuses on a contemporary horse from a different part of the world, and each animal is, in his or her own way, a hero.

PBJ Decks Smokin Gun (Gunner) is an American Paint Horse, one of the many of Heather Lott Goodwin's herd, and a valuable show animal that won the World Championship Paint Horse title.

When Hurricane Katrina passed over the Goodwin property, it took with it the fences, the cattle, and several horses. Heather and her family lived in their horse trailer for six weeks and considered themselves lucky to have safe, comfortable shelter. After the storm, they searched for the animals and recovered many of them. But three months passed before they located Gunner, a hundred miles away. They were told he was in terrible shape and should be put down.

Nevertheless, Heather drove on washed-out roads to bring him home, starving, dehydrated, and blind in one eye. With the help of a vet and her mother, she nursed him back to health.

Amazingly, nine months later, he was well enough to compete again in the World Championship Paint Horse Show. Gunner's story is a testament to love and to determination.
