We're delighted to announce that we'll be taking part in the Attingham Trust Study Programme, "The Horse and the Country House," in England in September. Watch this space for a forthcoming selection of books related to this theme.

Horses Are Folks
Anderson, C.W.

Anderson, C.W. Horses Are Folks. NY: Harper 1950. 90p, many ills. by the author. Good hardcover (edges lightly rubbed as usual; small rubbed area to front cover; small stain to a few fore-edges toward the rear of the book). ** Equine personality types from "the toddlers" to "the prima donnas, square shooters, chips on their shoulders," etc. Chiefly anecdotes about Thoroughbreds of the 1930s-40s (Seabiscuit, Stagehand, Brown Jack, Blockade, Whirlaway, etc.), but also with a portrait of the five-gaited American Saddle Horse Wing Commander, "the ultimate in style and showmanship." (Item ID: 846)
