Okay, so we don't have any zebra foals, but there is a site on the web which features zebras. This is recently updated and a thrill for zebra and equine fanciers.

a horse, three dogs;

a man, three horses.

The Scribe's Book Review
I was going to tell about a treatise on hadiths and other Arabic customs ensuring the purity of the desert horse. Instead, I will send readers first to the Manual of Straight Egyptian Horses, published by the Pyramid Society. For those who don't have book shelves filled with reference books on the desert horse, this book begins to fill the void. I place it only after Al Khamsa Arabians as a serious tool for Egyptian pedigree research, including Canadian bred horses. For those with a full library, this is a must.

The $53 price tag for the wire spiral book comes despite sponsorship throughout the book, in the charming way of honoring a great of the breed on each tabbed chapter sheet, with the sponsor's name modestly at the bottom. Moreover, Martha Murdock donated her extensive research. So, this is truly a gift of knowledge. Thanx, guys!
