if you could write a horse book, what would you write about?

If you had the oppourtunity to be a published horse writer, what sort of book would you write?

A specific discipline?
Horse whispering secrets?
Personal stories?
Horse breeds?
Health/Grooming?

I think I would love to do a photography book, and take a bunch of lovely pictures of horses and write about them.

A book on the Modern Saddlebred. Everything "new" that comes out is all about the history of the breed. Hah, most of us can recite that by heart. And then one on the dicipline Saddleseat.

Mine would be a fiction. It would have a little romance and then there would be a breed of horse, probably QH. And a discipline, there would be health incidents and what not, so it would have a lot of facts, but a lot of story too.....

I'm writing a mystery novel. I hope I finish it before I go into the Old Ladies Home.

I was thinking of putting together a trail riders plant/wildflower identification book. Pocket sized so it would fit in a saddle bag.
I know its not horsey but I'm always trying to identify the plants I see along the trail.
