This book details everything from ongoing daily activites to social interaction among horses to abnormal behaviors. Each behavior is further explained by original line drawings, photographs or both.
There are many behaviors listed in this book. Some with drawings (not really professional but you get the idea of them).
Example: You have a drawing with a description of the act; THAT'S IT! No explanation of why it is occurring, possible impact, not even an utterance!
Anyone can sit there and watch a horse for a week and document what they see. Good job on that accomplishment. You certainly don't need a PHD for this task unless it is in marketing useless stuff. Next week I am going to watch my dog and write a book on everything he does. I have to remind myself NOT to include any interpretation of why he is doing this. Hopefully some people who really want to know answers will buy this book and find it just as useless as I cash my monthly commission check.
Where is the meat of this book? In the past I have bought some pretty horrible books. Even with the worst of them I could find a reason not to have to repack and reship it back. In this case I couldn't find one! This is the first book among over $15,000 worth of book, bought in the last 4 years to ever be returned.
I can almost put money on WHO wrote the rave review!
Great as puppy lining in a crate
Something to give a grade school student for the nice roughly draw photos
Something to give to a writer on what not to write
You have to pay for it
You have to invest about 5 min before you realize what you have purchased
You have to make a choice of throwing it out or shipping it back
