Sarandra, it sounds like you're having a lot of fun and learning a lot as well! Hope you can get your lesson soon!
I also enjoy learning about breeds in their native environments. I learn every thing I can about every breed I can.
For Christmas one of my student's parent's (also one of my bosses), got me a book called, The Majesty of the Horse--An Illustrated History--Written By Tansim Pickeral--Photography By Astrid Harrison. When I first got it, my sister was looking through it (I had only flipped through it) and reading off names of breeds to me. As she would say a name, I would quote off what I knew about the breed. Where it was from, colors, height, temperament, what they were bred for, what they are used for now, etc, etc. I actually got most of them right! That's what I get from reading and devouring every thing I could get my eyes on about horses! LOL! Breed books are my favorites!
BTW, that book is amazing! So amazing that I bought a copy for my horse crazy sister, Cilla, for her birthday! She is going to love it!
Right now I'm into looking up and researching the Akhal-Teke. Kinda my passion at the moment, because I will be working with them this summer.
I figure if a girl wants to be a LEGEND, she should just go ahead and be one. ~Calamity Jane
