Old books, anybody?

I am going through some stuff I had stored, does anyone else have some old horse books that they love? Some of my titles:

Gulliver's Travels (A voyage to the Houyhnhnms) illustrated by T. Morten
Learn to Whinny, K Peck and M Washburn
Flip, Wesley Dennis
The Pinto Horse, Charles Elliott Perkins
Horse Facts, Major Lamb
Light Horses, Cecil Rooks
The Horse and Modern Veterinary Practice, George Skeavington and John Sherer

Frog, the Horse Who Knew No Master - story about a polo pony in the Panama Canal Zone in the early 1900s.

Riders ask "How?" Horsemen ask "Why?"

Oh! I love "Frog", too! I think it was the first horse book I ever read!
