Words can't describe...

posted 5 years ago

To me, just looking at a horse is one of the great joys in life. It is hard to put into words, but those of you who are horse lovers know what I mean. Barbara Livingston has captured something of the majesty & vulnerability of these animals in her book, "More Old Friends". The first time I looked at the photo with the inmate with Quick Call I cried. That this horse in his older years could change a person's life says volumes to me. And anyone who thinks that animals don't need compassion, needs to look at the photo of Precisionist with the owner of Old Friends. Another of my favorites is the one of Personal Flag's partial face & eye looking out the small window. What is he thinking? What does he see? For shear beauty, see Carabid, the cover horse. The photos each come with at least a 2-pg write up on the horse & their current status. Some of them have already crossed the Bridge & are running free with the Celestial Herd. All of them are so blessed that they had someone who cared enough about them to send them where they would be cared for...and Barbara Livingston captures this perfectly. I promise..you won't be disappointed.

Pros: Beautiful, sometimes tender, photos, Nice write-ups

Cons: NONE

Amazing book

posted 5 years ago

This is such a great book. Each horse featured has a photo and a life story written about it. In many cases, I remembered the horse from its racing days when I was a horse crazy kid, so it was a kind of a cool 'where are they now' update.
The less famous horses featured are no less interesting and some of their stories are both beautiful and heartbreaking. A really wonderful book, and essential for anyone who loves racing, rescue, or grumpy old broodmares ;)

Pros: Great photos and stories

Cons: Its a bit sad sometimes

I have 3 cats and they love this food. They eat less and walk away with a full belly. Eating less means pooping less and less litter. All around a great choice for my cats.
