Harri became the hero, Myrddin Ab Morfryn's horse. Harri's show name is Pentrepiod Sovereign. Not surprisingly his previous owner called him 'Harry' and apart from the fact that it's supposed to be unlucky to change a horse's name, I didn't see much point in changing it; it suits him. I do use the Welsh spelling in the book though. He's a lovely fellow, jet black and very handsome, but he has a lovely nature and is so very loving and gentle. He will come up to you, showing his teeth and curling his lip – and then plant a big kiss on your face. He's never been known to show his teeth or raise a hoof in anger, even though my other horse, T'pau, bosses him around mercilessly. He just takes so much of it then walks off and ignores her – and T'pau, a paint x Quarterhorse looks at me as if to say 'Why doesn't he love me?' LOL!
T'pau is very beautiful too – one day I'll have to put her into a story.
If you have animals do you incorporate them into your stories?
