POISON PLANTS IN THE PASTURE:
A HORSE OWNER'S GUIDE
by Deb Bennett, Ph.D.

Stuffed with gorgeous photos of broadleaf weeds and toxic grasses, this is a compilation that every horse owner needs. If you're like many, you'll say "What! I thought horses were supposed to eat grass." Yes -- but there are many kinds of grass, some of which can actually poison him. Do you know what your horse is eating? Dr. Deb has also included clear discussions of endophyte toxins, head-shaking syndrome, hypersensitivity, easy fattening and founder-prone horses, and why some alfalfa/lucerne may cause problems with reproduction and performance. In one volume she has brought together information from hundreds of botanical sources, with over 3,000 photos. This is a delicious read that your horse will thank you for! $49.95 USD

This book will help you, too, to increase your sensitivity to what your horse is "saying", and your ability to "read" his intentions. It's all about what makes him "tick" on the inside! The path to horsemanship that is effective, enlightening, and completely enjoyable for both rider and horse. First published in 2000, the book has sold over 5,000 copies -- a true underground classic. $49.95
