Each behavior is formatted with a name, illustration and/or photograph, text description, and any other pertinent information. This field guide, the result of McDonnell's 15 years of observing horses in nature, gives a fascinating look into the equine social structure and how horses survive. Approachable layout will appeal both to veterinary students and general horse owners. International direct mail campaign to universities, veterinary colleges and animal science programmes.
