Books/info on horse behavior, herd dynamcis and body language

I am looking for some good books on horse behavior, body language, and herd dynamics. Any suggestions on good books, youtube videos, or web sites/articles? I want to learn more about horse behavior so I can learn to understand them better and learn how to be more clear in communicating what I want from them.

Personally, I think a lot of Monty Roberts' books explain horse behaviour well.

The books by Mark Rashid, up to he got into martial arts, do a good job with this.

Makes you think.

Better than a book. Take a lawn chair and lunch out to a ranch, have a sit, and do nothing but watch them for a day. Most people that I know that board have absolutely no idea how their horse acts when they're not there.

I have actually done this a couple times and learned a lot from watching. In the pasture was my filly, a mini, and an older mare( who was most definantly the lead mare of this little group). A day before this they had moved a new mare into the pasture with them. It was really kind of interesting to watch the new mare learn her place in the herd.
