Open your eyes to a world of discovery and find out everything you wanted to know about horses and ponies with Eyewonder Horses and Ponies.
Being a thoroughbred chestnut mare Gypsy had the expected characteristics of one. Erratic theatrical were only 2 of her facets. She was the matriarch to all horses. Very intelligent quick to learn and a good teacher to young horses. Surprisingly would accept help if hurt if she trusted you. She loved speed and jumping but the change of life after motherhood didn't upset her. Whoever originally broke her did a marvelous job. Her counterpart. Solo, was an attractive coloured pony, who when a foal resembled a Hereford calf. Something went very wrong in nthe gene department. He was cheeky and into everything. He, like Gypsy was intelligent and quick to learn and a good teacher to young horses. The ones he met who were bigger soon learnt who was higher in the pecking order. He loved his grub and put on weight easily. He adored Gypsy who treated him as her first foal. Such a love and great fun but a bit naughty.
Come along with best selling author Joe Camp and his wife Kathleen on their journey of discovery as these two rank neophytes slowly but surely figured out how to turn their horses lives completely around and turn their steep one-and-a-half acre hillside of rock and dirt into a happy and healthy lifestyle for their entire herd. When Joe and Kathleen acquired their first three horses, soon to be six, they were all living in stalls, wearing metal shoes, and eating sugary feed from a bag. Because so many of the questions they were asking were turning up answers that made no sense they finally began to dig into serious research on their own to determine how their new horses should be living and eating. To dig out the actual facts, not the legends. Not the hearsay. Not the standard "That's the way it's always been done." And what Joe and Kathleen discovered was nothing short of amazing. Virtually everything they had been told to do was diametrically opposed to the way horses - all horses - should actually be living. Read stories you'll love and the information you need.
