I've trained animals professionaly for forty years. I am a lifelong animal lover. I'm especially fond of horses and cats, but have always had dogs, birds, fish and other assorted animals. Besides the above animals I've also raised goats and cattle.
"I owned horses as a kid, was a horse nut, read everything I could find out about them, and have included them in my writing for years---and in this book I still discovered useful information about horses that I didn't know. Did you know a horse's color affects the durability of the horse? I didn't. That's just for starters. This book is spare, direct, and frequently funny, and every piece of information in it is something you can use immediately to make the horses in your books feel real and act real...and to save your book from being one of those quoted for idiocy on Horses In Fiction panels at writers' conferences." ---Holly Lisle
