Help From a Horse

Writer confronts infertility and finds renewal through an equine companion

Nearly every little girl loves horses, and Nancy Shulins was no different. As an adult, she had a successful reporting career and a devoted husband, and hoped for a family as well. But after years of repeated miscarriages and infertility issues, while it seemed every other neighbor was pushing a baby carriage, Shulins was forced to reevaluate her future.

And there was another dream she had not fulfilled: learning to ride and own a horse. In her new memoir, Falling for Eli, Shulins explains how she discovered a surprising outlet for her maternal side with a loving (if cranky) thoroughbred. In this Prime Time Radio segment, Shulins tells how this relationship fulfilled her in surprising ways.
