An Adventure in Fun, Funny and the Power of Yes
By Noah Vail and Mary I. Farr
Two Harbors Press
Softcover: $12.95 201 pages

Written by American Quarter Horse Noah Vail with a little help from his owner and “business partner”, Mary Farr, this enchanting book takes readers through Noah’s daily life as he shares his views on travel, horse shows, human-equine friendships, the wins and losses of everyday living and even gin rummy, his favourite card game. Never Say Neigh contains inspiring observations from Noah as he travels the horse show circuit in his luxury Comfy Sundowner trailer sharing his positive thoughts on the universe and how all creatures have an important role to play.

This handsome bay gelding introduces us to his four-legged pals Omar, Gabe and Ghillie as well as his other companions, the dogs, cats and even goats who live at his barn.

Co-author, Mary Farr, introduces the book by assuring the reader that despite the abundance of bad news and sad stories out there in the world, inside the covers of Noah’s book you will be able to laugh, learn and embrace the good. Noah and his friends offer a tiny respite from the stress of our everyday human lives from their perspective inside the barn.

Readers quickly discover that Noah is no ordinary horse; he motors around the world in his Comfy Sundowner trailer hosting cribbage tournaments, opining on human behavior, dishing on the economy and spreading horse hilarity along the way. Though Noah observes the world through equine eyes, his words hold universal appeal on important matters such as friendship, fairness and compassion. Whether sharing his thoughts on work or play, old friends or new or even horsey love and loss, Noah speaks from the heart of an expectant fellow traveler anticipating that the future holds nothing but good.

The book carries the authors’ uplifting message skillfully woven into charming stories that fill each chapter with inspiration and more than a touch of humor. It’s an ideal read for all members of the family and you don’t need to own a horse to enjoy the book. Never Say Neigh begins and ends with the power of “yes” and a promise of fun.

Author Mary I. Farr works as a health care marketing executive and has received numerous national and international awards for her innovation and editorial excellence. Never Say Neigh is her fourth book. Her equine boss, Noah Vail, once enjoyed a brush with fame on an Oklahoma racetrack but that plan stalled when he and his trainer failed to arrive at a shared vision. Today Noah blogs and serves as chief entertainment officer at Fortuna Farm in Long Lake, Minnesota. He also manages a large Facebook fan club. Why not log on and “friend” him now?
