"When you get to the tepee stop the car." These words were part of the directions given to us when we were looking for Joyce's first horse. A snow-covered young filly found us and changed our lives forever. Joyce's Ark is a heartwarming true story of one woman and her love of God and animals. Over the span of thirty-five years she has cared for, nurtured, and loved over 70 animals. Horses, dogs, and cats were the main critters, but there were ducks, a sheep, goats, rabbits, a turkey, and a bunch of pigeons. It is a love story that will make you laugh and cry and marvel at her grit and determination. If you love animals and have pets of your own, this book is a must read. Share in the laughs and tears on this Journey to the Rainbow Bridge.
