Horse lovers know all too well that keeping a horse is practically a full-time job-with lots of fun and, well, goof-ups. For those new horse owners who sometimes wonder if their horse is smarter than they are, Horse Sense and Nonsense is a great reminder that the "joys" of owning a horse are universal. This refreshing spoof of the usually staid horse owner's manual blends common-sense advice with side-splitting spins on the issues of horses and horse ownership. Whether nodding your head in agreement or giving a hearty horse laugh, you'll delight in reading Horse Sense and Nonsense.

There are a lot of more in-depth, informative books about horse care on the market, but this one combines incredibly detailed, hysterical illustrations with painfully truthful observations about owning and riding a horse. Sometimes the text strays into almost being too instructional. I'd rather it just stuck to being funny, which it does most of the time. A quick, easy read that's sure to make anyone who knows anything at all about horses laugh.
