Doesn't Everyone Want a Horse?
I absolutely loved learning how to take care of your first horse through the perspective of the horse. The excitement in the performance made it a very easy read to listen to.
This is the first book I've read/listened to on the care of horses. It's definitely one I would recommend to anyone thinking of purchasing their first horse as the tips and insights are presented in a manner that is easily understandable...even for those who have never been around horses. I would have to do some research to find other books about horse care,.
I loved her strong presentation. The humor came through perfectly, and her delivery was never weak or unsure. I would certainly recommend her to produce your next audio project.
The tips on things to watch for to determine a horse's current attitude are excellent. Listen carefully here so you don't get kicked and so you'll know if something's wrong with your horse.
This was an excellent primer for people who have recently purchased a horse, and even more important for those who are contemplating purchasing a horse. It was a delightful listen and jam-packed with the information you will need to know from helping your new horse become familiar with their pen, to how to properly give an injection and check for hoof problems. I strongly recommend this book.
