Horses, Heroes & History eMag launched by historian Frank Holmes
August 14, 2012
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – Readers that can't get enough of the untold stories and rare historical photos behind America's greatest treasures – the Quarter Horse, the Paint Horse and the Appaloosa – are in for a special treat. Renown equine historian and author Frank Holmes has launched a new website and online magazine titled Horses, Heroes & History.
The monthly web-only publication will feature in-depth articles, beautifully illustrated with rare photos – many which have never been published before – about the people, horses and events that made history in the Western stock horse breeds.
Holmes has been penning horse-related feature articles and historical books for more than 45 years. He's best known for his contributions to Western Horseman and the Paint Horse Journal, as co-author of volumes 2 through 7 of the immensely popular Legends book series and author of The Hank Wiescamp Story, Wire to Wire, More Than Color Vol. 1 and 2, Spotted Pride and King P-234.
"Western horse history can be likened to a multi-colored tapestry that takes on a different hue each time you look at it," said Holmes. "As a lifelong student of the three breeds – Quarter Horse, Paint Horse and Appaloosa – I have always been intrigued by the colorful stories of the horses and the men and women who raised them. It is my sincere hope that Horses, Heroes & History will provide us with the opportunity to share these tales with those who share our interests."
Horses, Heroes & History is the culmination of Holmes' life-long dream – to publish a monthly magazine uniquely devoted to America's equine history – and create a community for like-minded enthusiasts to discover, remember and share the memories. Each article, written by Holmes or a hand-picked contributor, is carefully researched and checked to paint the most accurate, detailed picture of our treasured past.
"The need to chronicle Western horse history is a pressing one," Holmes said. "As each day passes, we lose our living links to these horses and the circumstances surrounding their lives. It is the primary mission of all of us connected with Horses, Heroes & History to capture and record the stories and images in a way that both educates and entertains – before they are lost forever."
