The True Story of Miracle Man by Lois Szymanski


The True Story of Miracle Man by Lois Szymanski

Visitors to the Chincoteague Wildlife Refuge often stop to admire the majestic and powerful Chincoteague Pony stallion known as Miracle Man. But this island favorite wasnt always a dominant herd sire. Heres the story of the orphaned foal found near death on Assateague Island, and Cynthia, the little girl whose faith and dedication helped him survive after her father rescues him from Black Duck Marsh. Cynthia's determination to save the tiny pinto colt begins the moment he is brought to their island farm. She spends every day in the barn, giving him his medicines, bathing his injuries, and wrapping his leg. She takes him on long walks along the bay and ruffles his spiky mane, and each time there is a setback Cynthia aches for the foal. But, no matter what they do, the colts leg will not heal. Finally, the vet suggests they throw away all the medicine and let nature take its course. Cynthia is afraid. How will the little colt survive? All ages.
