Dream Horses: A Poster Book
Storey Publishing, LLC, 2004 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 64 pages
There's something magical, almost mystical, about horses. Our earliest ancestors felt it--on the walls and ceilings of the caves of Lascaux and Altamira are magnifcent images of horses that were painted 40,000 years ago.
In Dream Horses: A Poster Book, Bob Langrish, one of the world's leading equine photographers, continues the tradition of celebrating the beauty, the power, and the mystery of the horse. Horse-crazy kids will be enchanted by the book's 30 spectacular poster-size photographs. Horse-loving adults who appreciate fantasy photography will be awestruck by Langrish's superb compositions. With the sure hand of a master, he has manipulated these images so that each shot has a fantastical, even mythological quality.
These dreamlike scenes, accompanied by inspired text, tell a story that is otherworldly, and yet still familiar.

I have loved the Dream Horses calendars for several years now. I buy one every year. I used to find them at Walmart for 3 or 4 years and then at Shopko for another 3 years, perhaps. Now neither store seems to have them and can't tell me why. I would like to know where I can purchase one locally, or if there is a way to send for one by mail. The photographs are wonderful and the horses exquisite. It means all the more to me because on August 1st, I had to have my beautiful Golden Palomino mare put down because of colic. I was devastated. She looked a lot like the Palomino pictured in 3 months in the 2008 calendar. I had waited all my life to have this horse. I had wanted my own horse since I was 9 years old when I started riding, and after 60 years, I got one. But she was so special. I can't take the time and space here to tell it all, but she was only 9 years old--young for a horse, and we had an unusually hot spell the last week of July. The vet said he had never seen so many cases of colic in one week. She was in his clinic for 5 days. He tried everything he could, but could not save her. I have her daughter, but our relationship is not quite the same. But if you could tell me where or how I can continue to purchase your beautiful Dream Horses calendars I would be so grateful. I have many books with lovely horse photos, but yours are truly the best. Please advise. Thank you. firstname.lastname@example.org
