Pony Care: A complete guide to buying and caring for your first pony will appeal to both owners and their parents. It has been cleverly written by Alison Pocklington, who has previously been awarded the Horse and Hound Groom of the Year and published the very successful first book, The Essential Guide to Professional Horse Care and Grooming. Now, as the mum of a horse-mad child and riding instructor to many, Alison is only too aware of the pitfalls of finding the right horse or pony to match the rider. This great little book offers sound practical and in-depth advice, tips and guides to get horse and pony ownership off on the right foot. Most children who learn to ride dream of owning their own pony. Pony Care offers parents an in-depth guide for what is actually involved in successfully buying, owning and caring for a pony. With advice on finding the right pony, buying the necessary equipment, livery options, daily care, feeding, shoeing, health, exercise and, when the time comes, how to go about selling the pony. Common mistakes can be made when there is a lack of knowledge or experience, in seeking the wrong advice or being in too much of a hurry. Alison Pocklington shares a wealth of experience complete with tips and checklists. 'This book is a MUST HAVE for anyone who has had the tireless and repetitive call to buy from their pony-mad child.' - Lucinda Green MBE

Packed with useful tips and delicious recipes from a slew of experts, Weed covers smoking, cooking, and growing cannabis, as well as proper stoner etiquette and a guide to mustvisit destinations around the world. Not too long ago, it might have seemed impossible that cannabis would step out of the shadows into the mainstream. But now, as legalization sweeps the globe, a new weed culture is evolving with its own set of rules—and thousands of new devotees eager to learn them. Journalist Michelle Lhooq lives in Los Angeles and is at the forefront of this revolution. Through her own expertise as well as interviews with stars from the weed scene, she presents a captivating glimpse into the wild new frontier of cannabis. This witty, insightful guidebook offers useful tips on how to smoke joints, vapes, and concentrates; make edibles and infused cocktails; grow the plant at home; and find the best cannabis stores. It imparts the wisdom of renowned potheads such as pioneering dub music producer Lee “Scratch” Perry and includes interviews with the cannabis industry’s most exciting and innovative figures, from a lauded chef who puts on a gourmet weed dinner series, to the editors of a weed-centric magazine, to a “cannasexual” sex educator, and more. Complete with vibrant new hand-drawn illustrations by the artist Thu Tran, Weed is cutting-edge, comprehensive, and brimming with sparkling personalities—an essential introduction to pot for both newbies and die-hards alike.
