The author behind the critically acclaimed children’s book series, A Day in the Life of Cowboy Mike and Winston, uses horsemanship principles to teach children about responsibilities, hard work, and resilience.
A Day in the Life of Cowboy Mike and Winston is a quirky and engaging tale about the author and his pet miniature pony, Winston. He rescued Winston in 2016, and after spending some time caring for him, he realized the importance of ponies and how few people know about them. Since then, he has made it his mission to raise awareness among the young generation through his words and charity.
He combined the elements of horsemanship and his love for children to create an exciting series about ponies. These books adequately teach children the importance of animals and pets and how to care for them. Cowboy Mike inspires children to become responsible and hardworking individuals; his love and protectiveness for Winston positively influence young ones to do the same for their pets.
Animals are a huge responsibility. As they cannot cook, clean, and feed themselves, pet owners must care for them. In return, animals give their owners something beyond comprehensible. Pets shower their owners with unconditional love. They make them feel acknowledged and appreciated. They also have a beneficial impact on the mental and physical health of their owners. In the book, Cowboy Mike and Winston share a similar wholesome bond; their friendship is unlike any other. Cowboy Mike shelters, feeds, and cleans Winston. On the other hand, Winston encourages Mike to become a better person.
Michael D. Eastwood, the philanthropist turned author, has also established Pony 4 Precious, a nonprofit charitable organization based in Prescott, Arizona. It has many projects, including the children’s book series starring Cowboy Mike and Winston.
Pony 4 Precious promotes child education, free children’s book programs, and rescues ponies throughout the United States. Michael’s mission is to expand this organization by building relationships with schools and institutions. He aims to provide scholarships for young adults who cannot pursue higher education due to difficult circumstances.
Michael says, “Horsemen not only have good riding skills, but they also maintain a deep connection and constant communication with their horses; this is how I keep my bond strong with Winston,” he further added, “I wish to see the children do the same for their pets, especially miniature ponies as there is very little awareness on raising them.”
Winston inspired Michael to buy ranch in Prescott Arizona and start a legacy for the younger generation. You can read his recent work, “A Day in the Life of Cowboy Mike and Winston,” on Amazon.
