Description

A lifetime's experience with many breeds of horses, from ponies bought at country horse sales, to colts and fillies at Bluegrass farms, to work horses, is shared in over twenty true stories. Common sense, empathy, and knowledge of quirks and illnesses and conditions from "wobbling" to blindness, smegma, to laminitis, and colic are evident in the tales of foals, foaling, stallions, geldings, colts, fillies, Thoroughbreds, Mustangs, Tennessee Walking horses, ponies, draft horses, mares, and unusual and rare breeds. The book, third in a series ("Tooth, Claw, and Hoof Stories") is truly an insider's view of the lives of horses and the people who care for them, work with them, own and ride them, work in the barns and stables, drive the horse vans, and treat their illnesses. Life in many kinds of barns and farms and hillside paddocks comes to life with details and terms that enlighten anyone who loves horses.show more
