We are away until early October. One activity is the Attingham Trust tour of country houses, stables, and other equestrian-related sites in and around Newmarket and York, England. We're looking forward to it!

U.S. Department of Agriculture

U.S. Department of Agriculture. Horses, Mules, and Motor Vehicles: Year Ended March 31, 1924. Washington: GPO 1925. 94p, many statistical charts. Fair paperbound (faded, bottom cover corner torn away). From the library of Hackney Horse expert Gurney C. Gue, with his ink stamp on the cover. ** This USDA Statistical Bulletin No. 5 contains a wealth of information about the horse and mule population in the United States from the early 19th century through 1924: numbers, registrations, exports and imports, costs of raising and using, and much more. It also contains data for mechanized vehicles (tractors, trucks, automobiles), which were closing in on draft animals: production, uses, cost of operating, comparison with horse labor, etc. Very useful for the historian. Can be sent outside the U.S. for less than the default shipping rate. (Item ID: 15775)
