No More Night Mares... A Dream of Freedom -
Written by: Dawn Van Zant
Illustrated by: Kim McElroy
Horse people will love these mythical mares destined to light up the night sky.
"Night mares prance brilliantly against a background of black sky and glowing stars to light our way to a time long-forgotten. Gaze up into their bright lights and they will fill you with a magical power. Listen to the call of the wild herd and remember...
We don't have to be afraid of the dark."

It is a critical point in wild horse history following a new amendment to the 1971 Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act. The company hopes to help build further awareness for the plight of wild horses through the ‘No More Night Mares’ line of plush toys and books, as well as through its interactive website. The amendment allows for the sale of wild horses to foreign markets, if the horse is over the age of 10, or if younger, then after they have unsuccessfully been offered for adoption three times. These sales may potentially result in the use of these animals for meat. Wild horse advocates are currently lobbying to get the bill reversed.
Book Excerpt: "A long time has passed since the days of Eclipse and his wild herd. The once plentiful wild herds have since vanished from the plains, now living as small scattered herds in refuge, or hiding in the outback. The history of wild horses alongside man has both defied and threatened their extinction. Man has been both a horse's best friend and his most brutal foe. But the legacy of man and horse continues... as it always will. They gallop through our dreams to carry us to the stars. They stir the tamest imagination and comfort even the wildest hearts."
