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.

    "Heartwarming story"

    This was a nice story to listen to. Heartwarming and sweet. It was nice to have a story about a horse (or any animal for that matter) that actually stuck with the story of the animal and didn't digress (too much) to the story of the person. Horse lovers, you'll like this one.

    "Amazing"
    Any additional comments?

    Usually I will only listen to memoirs by the author; it's much more real to me. I chose to listen to this one anyway. Not only was the story amazing, sad and all too relatable; the narrator was so good! I truly could believe it was her story throughout. I laughed, I cried, I contemplated. This is one of the best books I've listened to yet!

    "Well moving"

    This is a great book and a great recording, easy to understand, and very well animated!! The narrator is an excellent reader and storyteller. The only place I felt it fell short was the narrators voice sounded like a much older woman then 43, so every time the author referred to her age it made me stop for a second because the voice didn't line up with the words.

    "Beautifully raw and real."

    As a person who has had horses since childhood and recently endured very similar experiences with a dog, I loved this book. She took my heart, my feelings, and beautifully put them into words In a way I could never do. I am grateful I read this book. It enriched my mind and soul. Beautifully written!
