Dorling Kindersley, 1992 - Animals and civilisation - 63 pages
2 Reviews
For thousands of years, these noble and versatile animals have provided people with 'horse power' for transport, agriculture, and war, as well as for exciting sports such as chariot racing and steeplechasing . The book shows how horses vary in size and appearance from zebras to donkeys, giant Percherons to tiny Falabellas. Spectacular photographs reveal the tenderness of a zebra mare and her foal, the glamour of show jumping, and the natural behaviour of a herd of Przewalski's horses, the only living ancestors of all present-day breeds.
