Everybody in the thoroughbred horse business wants to win the Kentucky Derby, but the odds on making it to the winner's circle at Churchill Downs are about 35,000-to-1. How did a former Chicago newspaper editor bring together the stallion and mare and breed the winner of the world's most famous and important horserace? Jim Squires's Horse of a Different Color tells the story of his wild ride from absurdity to glory at the pinnacle of horseracing success alongside Monarchos, the charismatic gray colt blessed with the extraordinary speed, poise, and stamina necessary to carry his motley band of human handlers to the highest level of their profession. Squires takes you on an exciting journey through the close-knit and secretive world of horse breeders, buyers, sellers, owners, and trainers. And his hilarious tour of racehorse culture ends with a blazing sprint down the homestretch of the second fastest Derby in history in the company of a crowd of Kentuckians driven mad with "Derby Fever."

Our story begins on a world not so different from our own. There are lakes and streams with the bluest of water that rushes from mountains green with forest. There are meadows and canyons. Many animals live on this world, but none more beautiful then the horse. These are quite extraordinary horses. Their size and color are like horses in our world, but this is where the similarity ends. They are the fastest animal of this world, able to run for miles. They can jump as if taking flight, they can climb all but the steepest of mountains. And for our story, they can talk to each other. This is a story about one special horse. It will take him some time to know, although he is different from other horses, he has a gift. He will find out what he can do with this gift. Indeed, he is a horse of a different color.

This fascinating collection of essays contains a variety of perspectives about the use of expressive arts for facilitating physical and emotional healing. Each author within brings a fresh approach and unique experiences to their writing. Within these pages, you will find many ideas for the use of the arts and can learn how to engage the inner layers of the self that allow natural healing processes of the body and soul to flourish. When we fully engage an art modality, we find ourselves in a place in our consciousness that could be called 'healingspace,' where we feel ourselves whole and re-member ourselves as well. From psychic trauma to physical illness, dis-ease of many kinds may be addressed through the various techniques discussed here. The tools offered by some authors are population specific and age appropriate, while several authors have given us the philosophical underpinnings for it all. While the authors within represent the grassroots voices of this new and rapidly expanding field, several of them have developed their own methods for using the arts, and have thriving practices. Our approach is wholistic. Music, visual arts, movement, dance, and poetry are discussed as separate modalities and in combination with one another in a process or flow. The reader will engage in our experiences with these modalities as they have been lived. The complementary CD that accompanies this book will allows the listener to have a full sound experience of toning. If a rationale is needed for establishing arts programs in medical centers or other health facilities, it can be found here. The book offers tools for self development and for group facilitation. Those wanting to expand their healing practice through the use of the arts will find the book to be a faithful guide. Anyone wishing for a fuller understanding of how the arts may work to facilitate healing will find much food for thought within these pages.
This book tells about Henry Baxter, a boy who had different ideas.
Author: Nathan Kravetz
This book tells about Henry Baxter, a boy who had different ideas. One day in class while the other children were painting houses, flowers, and jet airplanes, Henry painted a blue horse. "A blue horse!" thought Miss Allen, his teacher. "A blue horse!" said the children. "Who ever saw a horse like that?" "Is there something wrong with Henry?" asked Mr. Stanley, the principal. All kinds of people asked him questions. But Henry went right on painting horses that were green, purple, and sometimes even with stripes or polka dots. Everyone thought Henry was terribly mistaken about color. Was he? There is lots to laugh and think about in this story of Henry Baxter and his horses of different colors.
