In Praise of Famous Horses

£10.99

This is an A-Z companion to perhaps the most loved of all domesticated animals. From D.H. Lawrence’s horse Aaron, whose hide was posthumously made into a duffel-bag, to Zippy Chippy, fabled American loser, all the horses featured in this book have their very own claim to fame. Some – among them Bucephalas, Red Rum, Champion the Wonder Horse and Rocinante – are permanent residents in the equine pantheon. Others – such as Rossa Prince, who managed to lose a walkover – attract more qualified appreciation.
