All who love horses, stories of rescued animals, and adoptions with happy endings

From the Back Cover

Equine Angels is a celebration of the journey of horses and foals saved from slaughter. Accompanied by more than 130 stunning full-color photographs, it tells the surprising and moving stories of how these foals have changed the lives of the human families who adopt them—for the rescuers are often the ones rescued when opening their hearts to an unwanted foal.

The foals' story begins from birth with their majestic mares on the vast plains of Canada. The mares are kept pregnant because their urine will then contain estrogen, a vital ingredient for a hormone replacement therapy drug called "Premarin". The Pregnant Mares' Urine, PMU, is often collected in harsh conditions for the mares and when the foal is born it is frequently considered an innocent but disposable by-product of the process. What happens next to the foals, who might otherwise go to slaughter, is the heartwarming subject of this book. What happens to people along that rescue path, is the magical soul of this book.
The photographs and stories feature ruggedly beautiful horses in their natural splendor that transform from once-wild creatures into loving and intelligent companions, bonding with their human families. Included are stories of successes great and small: foals growing up to be national competitors, therapy helpers, and members of families that are healed by the love of a horse.

Uplifting, with gorgeous photography, Equine Angels will inspire, delight, and teach life lessons through the wisdom received when connecting with these noble equine souls.

Enjoy the rescue journey and see how "rescues rescue us"!

This book needed to be written....and it has been written by a writer with just the right touch of factual information, sentimentality, urgency, love and gratitude to make it reach out to your heart and pull you in to help in some way. Frank Weller's optimism shines through a story and an industry that has dark sides. He, however, has chosen to spotlight the success stories, his "angels" with both two and four legs, and that is what makes the book his own. Anyone who loves animals of any kind, anyone who has owned or had a relationship with a horse in their lifetime or has dreamed of doing so all their lives, will be drawn to the stories of Frank's army of angels as they share their reasons for getting involved and rescuing a PMU equine. The photos are mesmerizing...so beautiful are the photos taken in Canada pre-rescue, that one could almost believe that these horses are living the perfect life! Unless of course, you know how it ends....and then the photos of the foals safe and sound are the ones that warm your heart. A wonderful book and a wonderful gift for any horse or animal lover in your life! Uplifting and special! Bravo to Frank Weller and Donna Cloutier and all the "angels"!

This wonderful book brought tears to my eyes as I viewed the pictures of the mares and foals in such bucolic settings. The real story of the lives of these beautiful animals is told in a factual accounting of the abuse suffered before being rescued by true angels dedicated to the atonement for the injustices created by our modern society. Special relationships are forged with intense devotion between the angels and their horses that make the reader empathize with these personal stories. It is impossible not to be affected by what you read in this book of the great work done by the angels. It is a must read by animal lovers.

Loved the pictures that went along with each story. Didn't know much about PMU or what it stood for and learn much reading this book. Loved it.
