True Colors, Jana Harris's first broodmare, was more than Harris bargained for: a complex, traumatized animal whose outsized personality would transform everyone around her, both human and equine. When she arrived at Harris's farm, she was in dire shape, having survived a range fire. She was terrified, and her will to escape was enormous.

In Horses Never Lie About Love, Harris lyrically recounts how this wounded, implacable beast nevertheless held a magical influence over the other horses of the ranch, and how she eased into the role of mother after having a foal. In time she became the heart of the ranch. Now 33 years old, she is a presence without whom the other horses cannot sleep at night, and whose quiet wisdom transmits strength of character that transcends the thin line between animals and the humans they love.

Very poetic and engaging. I loved the way she wrote about her experiences raising horses. I was interested the whole way through! Definitely worth a read, especially if you love horses.

I am a "dog" person but this is an incredible book. I couldn't put it down. Her love for horses, what she endures, the work, the losses, held me spellbound.

The title is inspiring, but little else. The book reads as a series of events, a history of the ups and downs of having a horse ranch.. Though there is no question that Jana Harris loves horses, her book left me in the dark about the horse to human relationships the title led me to believe the book was about.
