Horse Stories (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Horse Stories The volume of which this page is the fore-word, may be regarded as a sequel Of Dog Stories and Dog Lore. The favor shown to that work, by press and public, has induced the author to undertake the preparation of a book in which the horse should have a leading place, and the lessons Of kindness and intelligent control which were taught in Dog Stories, have been repeated in its successor. Those who wish to be informed concerning the treatment of horses in health and disease, and the proper arrangement of their stables, will be interested in the contents of this work. The author has gathered, from many sources, a considerable number Of anecdotes illustrating the intelligence, memory, affection and fidelity Of the horse, and these anecdotes will be read with pleasure by all lovers of the noble animal. But the book is not confined to the horse. Several chapters are devoted to cats, monkeys, elephants, and other members of the king dom Of quadrupeds, and the plan of illustrating their intelligence by numerous anecdotes has been followed throughout. Many Of these anecdotes, as well as those relating to the horse, are now, for the first time, given to the public in the pages of a bound volume, and there is a goodly number which have never before been in print in any form.
