Editor reviews

After giving up a successful career as a teacher, Kathy Stevens bought a run-down old farm to create the Catskills Animal Sanctuary, a safe haven for abused and unwanted animals. Amy Rubinate's warm performance creates the perfect complement to Stevens' anecdotes of a guardian sheep, aquaphobic duck, titular blind horse, and many more. It is heartening to hear the tales of such charming animals being saved by someone as caring as Stevens, and Where the Blind Horse Sings is a moving collection of stories that shows the rehabilitative power of love.

Summary

More than anything else, this is a book about love. In this deeply moving account, you will hear about Rambo, a sheep who informs the staff when another animal is in trouble; and Paulie, a former cockfighting rooster who eats lunch with humans; Dino, an old toothless pony who survived a fire; and many more. Alongside these horses, roosters, pigs, sheep, rabbits, cows, and other animals is a staff of loving humans for whom every animal life, even that of a frog rushed to the vet for emergency surgery, has merit. Reading this book can profoundly - and joyously - change your life.

Beautiful!

Just finished listening to this book on Audible. It's a 'must' for anyone who has a heart for the animals & it's a classic read. Gentle, loving, compassionate, caring, giving, real & Kathy introduces you to some of the individual, unique rescued creatures that make Catskill Animal Sanctuary (CAS) their haven & home & a little insight into what it takes to make it tick. I have great admiration for this woman, (along with her staff, volunteers & the Board.) A wonderful introduction to how the lives of animal creatures & us humans are interwoven & the most frank challenge at the end to ask what 'you' will do to stand in the gap and advocate on 'their' behalf.
Highly recommended & really looking forward to reading Kathy's next book.

memorable characterizations of different animals

Another beautiful memoir of life in an animal sanctuary with detailed characterizations of many different kinds of animals. I learned so much about pigs, cows, sheep, chickens, and of course horses and donkeys. Stevens makes you really wonder why these animals aren't treated the same as humans. Beautiful narration as well.

What story?

I'm sure there is a delightful heartwarming story in here somewhere. And I know animal cruelty is an important issue but the constant long rants are like those too long too frequent television commercials. They distract from the story. And I paid money for a story. The narrator's voice is soft and sexy, more suited to a romance than a rant on animal cruelty. I wasted my money. I did not finish the book.
