Horse at the Corner Post

Horse at the Corner Post is a loving memoir by Denise Lee Branco. She tells the story of her and her Quarter Horse, Freedom.

Denise was there at the colt's birth on a spring day in 1976, hence his name, Freedom Sky, or just Freedom. Denise was a youngster and felt bad that the colt had no other foal to play and run with, so she created a game of "race" where she ran along the fence to his pasture, encouraging him to run with her.

As Freedom grew up, his coat turned roan. When he was of age, he was trained by a professional. Denise later enjoyed riding him, even entering him in a horse show where he won a second place ribbon.

But like many young horse lovers, soon other interests kept Denise from spending time with Freedom. He was sent to an uncle's farm where he was trained for rodeo work.

Denise's story about their separation and eventual reunion is a heartwarming story that will be enjoyed by all horse lovers.
