I'm actually reading about 3 books right now, so depending on where I had been when I got this the book could have been "Martha Josey's Running to Win" or "Rhett Butler's People" (or even my Greek homework... now that would have been interesting! lol)
But the book I was closest to (as per the rules) sits on my desk beside my computer. I flip through it while waiting for things to load or just to soak in some beauty. The book is...
Spirit of the Horse by Bob Langrish and Nicola Jane Swinney.
Filled with the breathtakingly beautiful equine pics that BL is famous for it also has some breed/horse information that is not so common place.
Following the rules, I flipped to page 56, and it was a stunning picture of a grey (the white kind of grey) Arabian mare and her darker grey foal. So I looked at the facing page (57) and found the 5th sentence, which read:
"Like the beautiful Arabians shown here, the Seglawi was most commonly grey, with more white markings than other strains."
To continue on (remember, the rules!) it reads:
"In contrast, the Hamdani horse could be considered plain - if that description could ever apply to the Arabian - with an athletic build and bigger bones. He lacked the pronounced jibbah and has a straigher profile and neck. He was a bigger model, standing at about 15.2HH.
The Hadban was a smaller version, standing under 15HH. Although he had a markedly muscular build and bigger bone, he was known for his gentle and tractable nature."
Now to continue this game I tag:
