This is a mansion located at Eden Gardens State Park in Florida, from which I received my inspiration for the mansion in the novel.

To the right and below are photos of actual wild horses(mustangs) in the wild, now threatend by roundups by the government.

 The photo to the right and all those below it and below this text will be of a prison inmate wild horse gentling program for future horse adoptions. These are at a Carson City, Nevada prison.

The Nez Perce Indians of the Northwest and their Appaloosa horses were important in the genetic makeup of the wild horse of the West. Many times, there will be a horse with a spotted rump in a band of mustangs.

The photo to the right is of  brood mare,Hayoka Hawk, and her foal, Princess Plaudit, which we raised in the 1980s.

The photo to the right, and the one below are of our Appaloosa filly, Princess Plaudit, taken circa 1983 and 1986 respectively. Notice how she turned out to be nearly a total "leopard" spotted Appaloosa. Her friend, Goose, incidentally, was a constant companion; the most unlikely of friends.

Princess was a very easy horse to gentle and took to the saddle well.

The photo to the left is of a gorgeous mustang harem stallion shortly after taking a mud bath. All photos of these wonderful wild horses were taken by Janet Tipton. 

 To the left is another beautiful view of the mansion at Eden Gardens State Park between Panama City and Destin, Florida.
