This little filly started out as a surprise to everyone. She showed up at The Franch one day by her mother, Fyrelite’s, side as if by magic. It was love at first sight for me with this little filly and she officially became mine on her sixth birthday. Her sire is the beautiful black stallion, Spirit, and her official name is Spirits Fyrestorm. She is the inspiration for Fyrestorm, the fiery filly in the book I feel compelled to write. Here’s the synopsis for The Red Filly:
Bethany Resmon spends lonely days in the Samuel James Middle School cafeteria because she is “different”. Then she spots Fyrestorm, a wild, red filly galloping across the green pastures of Kuhaylah Arabians.
Antonia Silva, owner of Kuhaylah Arabians, has a soft spot for forgotten girls. She offers Bethany a job at the stables for a paycheck and free riding lessons to boot, but Antonia has rules. Bethany cannot ride Fyrestorm, because Fyrestorm has been too wild for too long.
Bethany becomes obsessed with riding the untouched filly, and ventures farther and farther out to befriend the young horse. After a near fatal accident, will Bethany and Fyrestorm be separated forever? Or will these two forgotten girls forge an unbreakable bond?
