Wild Horses by Michael Bright


Wild Horses by Michael Bright

This book shows you the beauty, speed and power of these graceful creatures and their relatives, with 190 exciting pictures. You can investigate the wild world of feral horses such as the mustangs of America, Australian brumbies, the white horses of the Carmargue in France, and many more. Special features focus on particular aspects of equine existence, such as the birth of a foal or the migration of a herd of zebras. Myth boxes introduce folk tales and legends about horses from diverse cultures. There are stunning wildlife photographs, plus illustrations and detailed cross-sections. Horses, zebras and other equids roam free on the world's grasslands. Both the native populations and the feral horses - the descendants of domesticated breeds - have adapted to the lives they lead. You can discover, for example, how a zebra's stripes protect it against the biting tsetse fly, and how the Namib desert horse can survive without water for much longer than the horses it is believed to be descended from. Amazing wildlife photography takes you right into the heart of the herd, while the text explains clearly what is going on, and why.
