Publisher's Summary

The horse Susan Richards chose for rescue wouldn't be corralled into her waiting trailer. Instead, Lay Me Down, a former racehorse with a foal close on her heels, walked right up that ramp and into Susan's life. This gentle creature, malnourished, plagued by pneumonia and an eye infection, had endured a rough road, but somehow her heart was still open and generous. It seemed fated that she would come into Susan's paddock and teach her how to embrace the joys of life despite the dangers of living.

Bittersweet account of pet ownership

Whilst this book will generally appeal to horse devotees, it is an account of pet ownership of more elderly animals and the trials and tribulations that goes along with it. It was an enjoyable listen and the narrator was very good. Worth a listen but you may need industrial quantities of tissues to hand
