Lady Thistle Thistle and Her First Day - Book 2

Based on a true story, this book is a tribute to Lady Thistle and the beginning of her adventures. In a cozy horse stall, at Waterdam Farm, Lady Thistle takes her first breath and sniffs the air of her new surroundings. The first day of a foal's life is busy as she learns to stand on very wobbly legs and drink her mother's milk. But exciting sounds-of nearby horses, the farm dog, and cats outside the barn keep her ears occupied and Lady Thistle isn't focused on eating. Polly knows her tiny filly needs to nurse and get the nutrients she needs, but she's just so distracted! The farm family and the veterinarian are attentive and offer a helping hand to ensure Lady Thistle starts off on the right hoof.

    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 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.
