Over a period of several years, anne made her way from a twenty-five year
corporate employee to become a full time animal nanny.
she documented situations with various animals.
“Stoney”, her first horse, the smart Palomino
(named for being sure footed on rocky trails)
was the constant companion and in his memory
http://www.stoneyhorse.com was born.
“from the diary of an animal sitter” (her first book)
was available there until ebooks came along and is
now available as an ebook at http://www.amazon.com.
“Diary” came into being when animal sitting/ranch sitting
anne would write stories for owners about the animals
while owners were away. Many owners suggested
the stories be made into a book and so it was.
The animal sitter book is thirty-two short stories
(each complete on one page accompanied by colored pictures)
that share the way various animals communicated
with her. Written in “stream of consciousness” style
which suits being around animals, the stories document
animals as the teachers, anne as the student.
Not a clinician nor a trainer, more like a shepherd,
her stories tell about horses as the main focus of the stories,
along with a few dogs, a couple cats, a frog,
a goat, many ducks, even an emu and a cockatiel.
“following the progress of the 4 rescue horses”
was written after her little ranch was completed
and a family needed a place to board 4 rescue horses.
The stories in this book (available at http://www.blurb.com)
document various events in their first rescue year.
anne is still working with animals daily and sharing
more stories on facebook.
