WINNER OF 2014 CHRISTIAN BOOK AWARD!
Spirit Of The Warhorse, Kitty Silverwings, An Appaloosa Story
This book will change the way you think about miracles.
The true story of awe inspiring courage in the face of impossible odds.
In telling the story of Kitty Silverwings, Patti Ansuini shares a compelling example of the spiritual bond that can form between humans and horses. Although often hard to explain, the connection is clearly understood through the emotional saga of Kitty and the challenges she faced. Countless horse owners will tell of special moments of understanding, but Ansuini gets deeper and leaves the reader believing in the authenticity of spirits from the past and the power of prayer to whatever form of divinity it is that watches over our animals. Kitty happens to be an Appaloosa, so that makes for an intriguing tale beyond what it would be if she were ‘just a horse.’

For those who might be cynical when it comes to miracles, the true story of
Kitty Silverwings might change your mind. Born with multiple life threatening defects her owner Patti Ansuini was advised by her Veterinarians that the humane thing to do would be to euthanize the chestnut blanketed filly immediately. Ansuini, who says she doesn’t hope for miracles, she counts on them, spent the next three months sleeping in the filly’s stall, helping her stand to nurse, bandaging legs, dressing wounds and providing physical and moral support when all efforts seemed lost. If you love horses, or just an inspiring read, you will enjoy this well-written, compelling story of love, courage and dogged determination.

Much has been written about the human-animal bond. From the Nez Perce Indians and following through the author’s life. Kitty Silverwings is a book that exemplifies that special connection that many of us find with the horses in our lives. This is a story of courage and perseverance. There is something about a horse that can lift your spirit and allows one to face daunting adversity.

Reading the book "Spirit of the Warhorse, Kitty Silverwings", not only changed my life, it touched my heart and soul. If there is one book that is a must read, it is this one. It is proof that miracles do happen if you believe and don't ever give up. A beautifully written true story about a wonderful woman who refused to give up on her ailing newborn horse. She also shares her miraculous survival of a serious personal illness. Reading this book will overwhelm you with love, inspiration, determination and belief in God's wonderful powers. As Patti puts it... I don't believe in miracles, I count on them. To be totally honest, there are no words magnificent enough to describe this book. I have read it many, many times because it just fills you with so many powerful and wonderful emotions. I would also recommend letting children read this book as I believe it will inspire them as well and have a profound impact on their lives. I strongly suggest watching the short video that Patti made of Kitty because it really shows how miraculous this story is and will make you want to get the book. Thank you Patti for sharing this beautiful story Diane Mynahan.
I passed it on to a friend who is a farrier.
I am a devoted dog person, not a horse person at all. After reading Patti's book I feel there is a void in my life not knowing a horse the way Patti has. The story was so uplifting to see how science and God can work together and the result is what we call a Miracle! Thanks for writing and sharing your story with the world.
