The Day Opus Lost His Nest
On The Farm
by Rebecca Milson Zavilla
About the Book
This the story of Opus, a Northern Mockingbird baby. He was tossed from his nest in a wind storm. This is his story of survival.
The "On The Farm" series are simple childrens books, retelling real on the farm experiences. These stories will be told from the viewpoint of the animal, in an imaginary way.
Rebecca Milson Zavilla owns and operates a small horse boarding facility in the quiet town of Bixby, Oklahoma.
She has had a passion for helping, and getting attached to, the underprivileged child. The most recent, a young child that came into her care a few days per week for riding therapy.
This child is Jasmine Star, who at 5 captured the awareness of the horse, and understood that it deserved and wanted love. She had no fear. The realization that something larger than humans, could give her security, love, and peace, with no pain , became very real to her in her young years.
Her endurance, stamina, painful honesty, and her ability to work through abuse, has inspired the author to pen the series
"On The Farm".

I am a devoted mother and wife. I also own and operate a horse training / boarding facility. I teach lessons to beginners, and am also involved in Equine Assisted Therapy. I think that the little images in my mind have finally escaped, and they are on paper for the world to see. My mother wished for her genealogy to be recorded, and her family treasure to be in story form. The characters, some real, and most imagined, have given to me a vivid depiction of what my family may have been like in the old days. Some of the other sneaky little characters have emerged into a series of childrens books, On The Farm.
