Barb Fox:  Author

The Infinite Bond is a true story of life, love, and loss between three beautiful Arabian horses and their caretaker, Dr. Barbara Fox. If you have ever wondered how strong the bond is between animals, as well as between animals and people, this story depicts the true emotional connection they form.

Each horse came into Barbara’s guardianship in a unique way. The common thread in each of their journeys was their need for a forever home, someone to love them for who they were and not for their looks or their show winnings. In turn, the horses taught Barbara profound lessons about relationships, forgiveness, and empathy. Even in the darkest times of her life, the three boys provided unconditional love and acceptance just with their presence.

As each horse ages and the time to depart his earthly existence approaches, you’ll learn how powerfully their emotions can be expressed. If you don’t believe animals show emotions, this book is proof that they do. The Infinite Bond may make you laugh, sympathize, and cry as you read through the pages. Perhaps you’ll see a little bit of yourself and your animals here, too.

Dr. Fox has also co-authored a reference guide featuring veterinary aromatherapy and has been a published author in the Journal of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association.
