“The True Adventures of Carbon”: heartwarming stories from the life of a lively young stallion. “The True Adventures of Carbon” is the creation of published authors Sue Lamoree, a hobbyist horseback-rider and watercolorist who lives on Camano Island, Washington, with her husband and two dogs and who has published works under the penname Sue Hutchinson; and Nyle Kinghorn, a businessman, musician, and country boy at heart who grew up working in his family’s farm in Idaho and introduced Carbon’s story to Sue.

Lamoree and Kinghorn recount the grand moment of Carbon’s birth, “A warm, wet tongue gently bathed me as I lay shivering in some straw. Then a soothing voice spoke from above. ‘Welcome to the world, little one.’ Blinking my eyes against the bright sunlight, I looked up to a kind face hovering over me. ‘I’m your mother.’

‘Where am I?’

‘On Pa’s farm.’ Mother brushed my forelock with her velvety muzzle. ‘It’s a good thing he put down that straw last night—we’ve been expecting you.’

I was lying in the corner of a trampled dirt corral under a tarp stretched between two maple trees. Morning sun peeked through the leaves, and hundreds of birds filled the air with their songs. My nose caught a whiff of the sweet, moist straw that lay beneath me. There were so many things to take in. I spotted a rabbit poised at the edge of a wooded area cautiously glance around and then spring into the bushes. Feeling something brush my knee, I looked down and watched a tiny ant carry its heavy load through a tunnel in the straw. Swish . . . a snake slithered through the dew-covered grass and coiled itself in a patch of warm sunlight.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Sue Lamoree and Nyle Kinghorn’s new book is a loving dedication to the beloved real-life Carbon, who lived a long and full life with Kinghorn’s family until his twentieth year.

As with many animal story classics, Carbon’s antics and big heart will touch the hearts of children and adults everywhere.
