We see a few interesting items and some ailments.
My sole criticism is that more than once the book says mule

I read this in one sitting. I found it to be well written and very factual. I highly recommend this book to horse lovers and horse owners. Very informative. I also liked the format of this book.

Nice encyclopedia of horses. It covers everything from grooming methods to different breeds, to the right kind of hitch to pull a horse trailer. Nicely put together with color photographs and illustrations. Any horse owner or just fan of horses will want this as a reference.
I received an advanced ecopy of the book through Netgalley and the publishers for an honest review.
