Gwen Petersen earlier enlightened us on the joys of shoveling manure. Now, in this delightful new collection of pithy and hilarious essays, she explains how her philosophy of life comes with a good dose of horse sense.  Here’s advice on how to fall off a horse with style, dressing to avoid embarrassing your equine friend, 1,001 uses for bag balm, perfecting the care and feeding of veterinarians and farriers, cattle drives and brandings, and falling in love all over again (with a horse, that is). Petersen’s words are as amusing as they are instructive, and  whether you’re a horse lover or simply someone in need of a down-to-earth laugh, this is a book you won’t want to miss.
