Shelves: horses
While the pictures and language are not the glossy, highly edited stuff of major horse encyclopedias, this book has something better: real, good advice. The information is not the standard breeds, tack, and conformation, but rather detailed instructions on what you REALLY need to know to keep a horse on your own. The author is honest, realistic, and practical, but funny too! The perfect book to have on hand if you ever want to keep your horse at home.
