Product Overview

Why do horses let people ride them? What did horses look like millions of years ago? Can horses really sleep standing up? Veteran children's author Elizabeth MacLeod answers these and dozens of other horsey questions in this ultimate companion book for young horse lovers. Like Why Do Dogs Have Wet Noses and Why Do Cats Have Whiskers?, the question-and-answer format makes this book perfect both for browsing and for school-project research. Kids don't need to own or ride a horse to love this book, as it is not about riding but instead showcases the horse as a fascinating animal.

Humans and horses have shared a long history together and this book covers it all:
? When Horses Flew: famous horses, prehistoric horses, legendary horses, horse lore and facts
? Pintos, Percherons and Palominos: breeds, ponies vs. horses, wild horses, horses around the world, weird horses
? The Mane Tale: the many quirks of horse bodies and behavior
? Straight from the Horse's Mouth: horse language, horse expressions, hero horses, horse whisperers
