Description

Did you know that horses used to have four toes? Or that a Zedonk is a cross between a zebra and a donkey? Discover these tidbits and more interesting facts and history about equines in DK Eyewitness Books: Horse .

From pulling wagons and farm equipment to racing and jumping in professional sports, horses and humans have worked together for over 6,000 years. Delve into the history and modern-day knowledge of our most helpful animals. Find out about the three different types of bits used to guide a horse's head and the fastest recorded speed a horse has run. Learn the major horse breeds from around the world and the many different sizes and colors they come in.

Available for the first time in paperback and featuring more than 180 images and illustrations, DK Eyewitness Books: Horse brings the fascinating history and story of horses to life.

Each revised Eyewitness book retains the stunning artwork and photography from the groundbreaking original series, but the text has been reduced and reworked to speak more clearly to younger readers. Still on every colorful page: vibrant annotated photographs and the integrated text-and-pictures approach that makes Eyewitness a perennial favorite of parents, teachers, and school-age kids.
