How intelligent are horses? Why do they toss their heads and what makes them paw the ground?
As a zoologist and a lifelong student of animal behaviour, Morris approaches the horse world in an unusual way, dealing with topics often ignored in equine literature. In addition to examining details of behaviour, he considers such questions as shy horseshoes bring good luck, why jockeys are allowed to whip their mounts and why we call a bad dream a nightmare.
