Book 3: Clothed With Thunder
After sitting through a 4-H demonstration on the evolution of the horse, Rosie and Carrie are determined to present the arguments for creation at the club’s next meeting. The demonstration proves harder to put together than they imagined as everyone offers the girls their opinions. The lessons Rosie learns about creation extend into her life in surprising ways as she faces her old adversary, Billy King, who cheated her out of her first trophy with her pony, Scamper.
You cannot pick up a non-fiction horse book today without reading about the evolution of the horse. The images showing the progression of eohippus, merychippus, etc. into modern equus are constantly portrayed as though they are fact. Clothed With Thunder presents the other side of the story - that horses are magnificent creatures meticulously designed by an awesome and loving God.
Scriptural themes: God as Creator, Job 39:19-22
Art lesson: Learn how to draw the equine eye

My daughter Julie is riding the black-and-white paint, carrying the U.S. flag. That's the horse Scamper in the Sonrise Stable series is patterned after. See if you can spot Sassy the mule. That's me on her. :) At about the 5 minute mark, Scamper steps up onto a wooden pedestal. He still loves to stand on things! Fences, gates, etc.
