When I was a kid, one of my favorite nonfiction horse books was Patricia Jacobson and Marcia Hayes' A Horse Around the House.The cover describes this as "The Horse-lover's Guide to Selecting,
and Getting Along with Every Kind of Horse Anywhere at Minimum Cost."
That might be overselling, but there's no doubt this book combines a lot of solid, practical information with Pat Kelly's delightful illustrations. Even after all these years, I am happy to have it on my shelf.
My best friend, Carol, recently moved into a new house with all new--and still kind of empty--shelves. Last night the boys and I joined her for dinner.
We didn't arrive empty handed. We brought housewarming gifts...
for both Nate...
Carol is not a horse person, per se, but I think she was pleased with her gift.
After all, doesn't everyone need A Horse Around the House?
