Based on a true story, this book is a tribute to Lady Thistle and the beginning of her adventures. Waterdam Farm is quiet and peaceful where horses, cats and a dog roam and play. On a crisp February morning, a new horse arrives, making the animals very curious. Polly is a retired racehorse, but something about her is rather peculiar. She's round and moves very slowly. The farm animals quickly welcome her and she becomes part of their family. Then news spreads throughout the barn: Polly will soon be a new mom! In early spring, she gives birth to a tiny filly.

About the Brand: When a baby horse was born in our stable, we witnessed the bonding between mom and child. The baby would be called Lady Thistle, sired by Lord Shanequil. We wanted to share this experience and educational information about horses and farm life with youth. We are pleased to share Lady Thistle with young readers via a series of 20+ books, a clothing line, collectibles, accessories, and more.
About the author, D.H. Anderson. Working with horses for the last 30 years is more than just a hobby; its a way of life. Donna grew up just outside Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, near Waterdam Farm, the Lady Thistle book series setting. Donna loves and cares for five horses on her property, inspiring her to document their chronicles as a picture book series with the hope of sharing a peek into the equine world through real-life stories. Before jumping into equestrian writing, Donna earned her BA from the University of Pittsburgh and has worked as an Organizational Development Leader for a 300-bed hospital. Her life experiences have led her toward a love of literature and writing and a belief in the importance of quality, fun, and educational childrens stories. Her goal with the Lady Thistle book series is to encourage children toward a lifelong love of horses and literature.
