Encore the Miniature Horse

Encore is a big heart in a small package. He’s a little mischievous, but he loves to explore! You can find him chomping on the greenest patch of grass in the pasture.

Lola the Miniature Donkey

Lola is a verified vocalist. She loves to sing and sunbathe while the rest of the herd moves around the farm. She’s small in size, but her voice is mighty!

Alpie the Alpaca

Alpie is a fuzzy friend who always makes sure his friends are taken care of. He loves to frolic around the pasture, kicking his heels up high. Don’t let his fleece fool you! He’s fast as lightening.

As a speech-language pathologist, I absolutely love this book! The language and illustrations in this book are perfect for the children I serve with speech and language deficits. It is also exciting to be able to expose my students to an African American Cowgirl!!!!! I highly recommend this book!!!
