Does this book sound familiar to anyone???

Hi, there's a book that I read, actually I think it may have been a series, around 1978-1981.  All I can remember is that there was a boy or young man and I think he had a long lost brother, I remember him pacing along the shore waiting for him at some point in the book.  Also, I think the horses could talk.  Later in the book or in the series I remember someone visited a place like heaven, where if you dreamed of flowers you would wake up to flowers everywhere.

Now that I've written this out I realize it looks like I'm looking for a needle in a haystack because I have so little info.  This was one of my favorite books and I can't  believe I don't remember the name of it or the author's name.

Does this story sound familiar to anyone????

Thanks!

This is one of my favorites. I'm not sure if it the right one but...it is very similar to what you described.
