I just got done reading this book. It is a very good "broad" overview of the world of miniature horses, but I am a little disappointed because on many of the aspects such as care, showing, conformation, etc. etc. the author instructs the reader to read "other" books that go into more detail. I feel that if you have never owned a horse before, and are interested in minis, it's a good book for you. But if you are like me, and already have knowledge of equine behavior, this may just be a simple review of what you already know. Definitly a good book for the novice, but the more experienced horse-person will not gain a whole lot.
This book is a wonderful source of information. It is a non-fiction guide to choosing, buying, owning, showing, and breeding miniature horses. This book was written by Jill Sweedlow Coffey, a miniature horse owner, shower, and breeder. The information in the book is relevant, helpful, and educational while it explains to people the quirks and twists of owning these adorable animals. The author artfully includes her own educational experiences with her minis along with the must-have knowledge that a beginner needs to aquire. Although I would not recommend this book to someone who is not interested in miniature horses, for those of us who are buying or who own minis, this book can be a life-saver.
I found the author's stories interesting but did not really learn all that much about the things I care about with respect to minis. There are more useful books out there if you are looking for technical or medical stuff. If you just want a good overview of mini breeding experience this book is OK for that.
It is the best book I have found about miniature horses.It is very detailed and gives you alot of very important information you need in the care of mini's.I would highly reccomend this to anyone who is considering a miniature horse.
I purchased it as a gift for a friend who is considering getting a Miniature Horse. The book itself looks "home made" and the pix are not that good, but it's a useful primer. My friend liked it.
This book is a well written easy to understand book. For the first time horse buyer, it is exactly what I wanted. The author not only tells you what you need to know about miniature horses and how to care for them, she also gives you ideas of how she raises her horses.
