I'm a farmer and horseman with a life-long love of fiction, but all too often it’s obvious that an author has relied on movies for their information about horses and farms. Hollywood has dubbed in the sounds of squealing car wheels on gravel roads and they tend to handle horses and farms even more poorly. Books rely on my knowledge and imagination, so these errors are far more glaring.

I wrote this to give authors some insight into the intimate details of horses and life on a farm so that they can write better for me. I've tried to be completely honest. Some of what I’ll relate is gross, explicit, and may even horrify you, but it is part of everyday life for horsemen and other farmers that I know.

It's available on Amazon or Smashwords in various ebook formats only since it contains a lot of hyperlinks to relatively safe sites (Wikipedia & such) for further exploration.
