Description - Fabish by Neridah McMullin

Fabish was a handsome grey racehorse. In his racing days, he wasn't the fastest horse, but he always tried his hardest. And when he retired, Fabish took care of the yearlings in a paddock far away from the training track. Fabish showed the flighty young horses what was expected of a racehorse. One hot summer day, a wild wind blew up and the yearlings were restless. Then Fabish smelled smoke. Fire was coming, fast. The trainer threw open the gate and said, 'Go now!' Fabish neighed to the young ones and they galloped away. All through the night, the fire raged and the trainer battled to save the racehorses in the stables. But what would become of Fabish and the yearlings? Could he save them from the firestorm?

Author Biography - Neridah McMullin

Neridah McMullin is an Australian author who writes stories and poetry for children. She aspires to write stories that matter; some are long forgotten, some are little known. Her grandfather was a stockman who bred racehorses, so she learned to ride at a young age. When she read about Fabish, she went to meet the trainer at the farm in north-east Victoria. He told her about that terrible time, and how he had to set Fabish and the yearlings free to make their own way through the firestorm. He didn't think he think he would ever see them again. Andrew McLean is an artist who has taught painting, drawing and art, but is now a full-time painter and illustrator of children's books. Andrew also visited the farm where Fabish and the yearlings lived, and saw the old stone stables where the racehorses were saved from the fire.
