Poison Plants in the Pasture: A Horse Owner's Guide

(2005) by Deb Bennett, Ph.D.

Stuffed with gorgeous photos of broadleaf weeds graded by their toxicity to horses, and with a compendium of over 400 different grasses both toxic and non-toxic. This is a book that every horse owner needs. If you're like many, you'll say "What! I thought horses were supposed to eat grass." Yes -- but there are many kinds of grass, some of which can actually poison him. Do you really know what your horse is eating?

 

This comprehensive volume includes clear discussions of endophyte and alkaloid toxins, head-shaking syndrome, hypersensitivity, easy-fattening and founder-prone horses, and why some feeds may cause problems with reproduction and performance. It brings together information from hundreds of veterinary and botanical sources, with over 3,000 big photos that clearly show what each plant looks like through various seasons of the year, flower, bud, branch, stem, fruit, leaf, and root. Includes maps showing where plants grow for the U.S., Canada, U.K., New Zealand and Australia. Thoroughly indexed for quick reference. Pages can easily be downloaded through your printer. This is a delicious read that your horse will thank you for!

The Birdie Book: An Internal Geography of Rider and Horse

(2000) by Deb Bennett, Ph.D.

This is Dr. Deb's story of how she found "deep" horsemanship under the tutelage of a little old man. Scientific in education and outlook, Dr. Deb confesses that she had to learn just how ignorant about the more important aspects of a horse's life that she was. This book will help you, too -- to increase your sensitivity to what your horse is "saying", and your ability to "read" his intentions. It's all about what makes him "tick" on the inside! This path to horsemanship mastery is effective, enlightening, and completely enjoyable for both rider and horse.

As you read the text, you'll learn the full idea behind what we call Birdie Theory and The Thread. These are ancient metaphors -- teaching tools that help make normally-invisible phenomena visible to the mind's eye. The Birdie and The Thread are also, however, real in the sense that you can learn to use them to direct your horse and help him gain confidence and learn what's expected of him. 

 

This volume contains over 500 sequence photos of so-called horse "behaviors" that reveal horse motivations, desires, and thoughts. One of the few books ever written specifically to help you learn how to "read" your horse better. First published in 2000, The Birdie Book has sold over 5,000 copies -- a true underground classic.
