A 1901 title by Mary Tourtel, best known for creating the Rupert The Bear comic strip in 1920. This book has been on a challenge list of mine for ages, and since I always try to go through a few short shorts during the last days of each month, I thought it was about time to read it.

This is a collection of paintings and poems (and sometimes non-rhyming paragraphs) about horses. Each page illustrates a different aspect of a horse's working life or character. Titles such as At Play, Cleverness, Wil

Very good book if you like poems about horses.

I would recommend this book to anybody who loves horses and poems. I chose to rate it # 5 because I really like poetry and horses. Not only that, but I thought that it was written well and it used very intelligent words. Another thing I liked about was that each one was short and not long and it only took me about 5 minutes to read through the entire book.

Equestrian Primer for Children of Days Gone By

Rhymes and prose passages cover the life cycle, moods, and jobs of horses in times before the automobile. So charming and an interesting historical diversion; would have liked illustrations, however.

A Cute Book

This is a nice book of poems about horses. It was published in 1901 and all the little girls that want a pony will enjoy reading it or having it read to them.

10/10 #360nostirrup420trottit

These poems are great. They are especially great to read to kids. They remind me of Aesop's fables.

A very old book meant for the young reader about how to know horses. Charming in its quaintness, life from another age.
