By Carol A. Butler, Les Sellnow
Did you know that a miniature horse weighs just a few pounds, while a giant draft horse can weigh well over a ton? Or that from a standstill a mule can jump, kangaroo-like, more than five feet high? With answers to hundreds of questions about behavior, physiology, training, and special breed characteristics, Knowing Horses has all your horse quandaries covered.
Les Sellnow, a competitive horseman and journalist, and Carol A. Butler, a writer, psychoanalyst and docent at the American Museum of Natural History, have unearthed a plethora of interesting facts and stories about horses and included them in a pocket-sized paperback that is interesting to browse as well as have on hand as a quick reference.
Knowing Horses is a must for those who love horses and want to learn more about their favorite animals.
