Did you know a horse can have a sense of humor? This true story began when the author's first horse died. Grief stricken, Nancy went to the same breeder for another Morgan. She thought she was "settling" when she purchased an undersized two-year-old colt instead of the mare she wanted. She was in for a big surprise! Follow the adventures of Clifford as he wins the hearts of those around him, while romping in the scenic wilderness of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Combined are tales of hand-fed chickadees, a playful hawk, a loyal German shepherd, and a unique way of life. This second edition includes the charcoal drawings by the author originally intended for the first edition, but were too detailed for the printing capabilities at the time. Hilarious, heartbreaking and unforgettable, this is a story destined to become a classic.

Review:

"A warm and engaging narrative full of Morgan horse lore and character..." -- Jeanne Mellin Herrick, author, The Complete Morgan Horse

"A warm and engaging narrative full of Morgan horse lore and character; a veritable kaleidoscope of horses, dogs, birds and people, made all the more enjoyable because their story is true! I've known many a Morgan not unlike Clifford!" -- Jeanne Mellin Herrick, author, "The Complete Morgan Horse"

"Ahhh, Clifford! Every horseperson at some point in their life should be lucky enough to have a horse like Clifford; the type of horse who is unforgettable because of their intelligence, personality, and sense of humor. Do horses have a sense of humor? Well, Clifford of Drummond Island is a Morgan who certainly seems to have a quirky view of laughter and life.

Author Bailey has come up with a winning true story about Clifford the Morgan Horse that is witty, engaging, and at times, laugh out loud funny. Best of all, Bailey admits to her equine shortcomings with hilarious results.

The author also includes a short quote at the beginning of each chapter that sets the stage for the story to come. There are wonderful passages from Ralph Waldo Emerson, John Milton, Helen Keller, Percy Bysshe Shelley, and Alice Roosevelt Longworth that add a special touch to this light-hearted volume. Trot right out and pick up a copy of Clifford of Drummond Island to chase your winter blues away!" -- Hallie McEvoy, "Horseman's Yankee Pedlar"

"In this enchanting tale, Nancy Bailey shows us how good training and love can be woven together to create the kind of partnership we all want with our horses." -- Alexandra Kurland, author, "Clicker Training For Your Horse"

"The author has provided a special way to make Drummond Island a part of all of us. If you love horses and animals in general, this book will make you laugh and make you cry. This is a book that will stay with you, as many fine classics do." -- Nadja King, Editor, "Horses For Life" magazine
