Sheba’s Dance: a horse story
Written by engage on October 10, 2019
1079 Life listener Kerry McFie has written a wonderful book about a very special horse Sheba and her legacy on the world. Kerry says,
“A young horse named Sheba ended up with me. Being inexperienced I had no idea of what I was doing. I always had a passion to entertain people.
My lazy brumby, certainly not a Ferrari of the horse world, really didn’t have it. Sheba bucked me off and I ended up in hospital. The doctors said I was lucky to be alive. Persistence proved Sheba, like me, was born to entertain.
I believe she was given to me by God and children adored her. Families came to see this unusual performing horse doing a bow for anyone who wanted to ride her. At a church gathering at Henley Beach, when it was time to break bread, Sheba decided to eat the whole loaf.
Sheba’s spirit lives on to this day demonstrating her ability to bring joy to many people.
It’s not what we did that made us special, it was Sheba’s relationship with people that made her special.”

Johnny Mac had a national TV show, running for 3 years with his horse Pancho on the Seven Network Adelaide. Johnny says,
“Kerry has the uncanny gift of connecting with a horse and winning their trust. To train her horse to perform so many tricks and movements, her dedication and presentation is world-class.
I have seen shows and rodeos including the Las Vegas’ Biggest Rodeo and the Calgary Stampede, and Kerry fits into this calibre of entertainment and expertise. I highly recommend this book of stories and pictures of her beloved Sheba.”
