But this job isn't all it cracked up to be. Will they make it through this long week or just give up?
About The Author(Vicki Watson's own words):
My love of horses began when a teenage neighbor offered me my first
ride, on the back of her horse. From my 8-year-old perspective, it
seemed like the biggest horse in the world. From that moment on, I was
addicted. Horses were to become a very important part of my life,
although I never could have imagined, at the time, how much God would

wonderful animals. The Sonrise Stable series combines my love of God and horses in
stories that I hope will help children learn more about both. I have a
vision for ten initial books in the series, taking the main characters
through one year. Beyond that I'll see where God leads me. I have been blessed with three daughters and homeschooled each of

Nikki, hiking, photography, and playing guitar. I work from home as
a and computer programmer and enjoy the variety and flexibility that
