Lazy Labradors, springing Springers, terrible Terriers, permed Poodles, working dogs, lapdogs, hang-dogs and even sausage dogs! All these and more fill cartoonist Bryn's latest book. Bryn's first book was Mad Dogs and Englishmen. This time, it's all about the dogs; no humans to get in the way of a dog's life! Bryn can't imagine drawing without a dog at his feet or, more likely, sneaking onto the sofa. Whether it's barking at the postman, chewing on the TV remote, poking around in the bin for a tasty morsel or just letting off foul smells, Bryn's dogs are real. He's owned pedigrees and mutts, he's even tried to train them with limited success. They are obstinate, disobedient and embarrassing but they are family and much loved. This book of canine cartoons is the dog's doodahs and makes the perfect present for anyone who is similarly dog mad. In fact, if you don't buy it, you may well find yourself in the doghouse!

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

Chicken-keeping is an increasingly popular hobby as an increasing number of people discover the benefits of raising chickens and supplying their own eggs. Written by an expert chicken keeper of many years standing, the subjects covered include choice of breed, housing, feeding, breeding, showing and indeed all the many topics the new chicken keeper will want to understand. This practical guide incorporates much of the author’s forty years of experience as a chicken keeper, as well as taking advantage of the knowledge and experience of other enthusiasts. Also included, either because of their relevance, or simply their ability to raise a wry smile, are several snippets taken from poultry books written during the first half of the twentieth century.

This book is designed for all riders from the very novice to the most advanced. Sylvia Loch teaches through illustrations and photos how each tiny shift of the rider s weight will affect the horse s balance. The weight aids are generally taught only to higher level students especially those learning the more advanced skills. Yet, by including them from the beginning, novice riders will develop a much greater understanding of their own bodies and abilities and those of the horse from day one. In the Authors words... The time has surely come to show all riders how their body-weight impacts on the horse for good or bad. Feel and balance should govern the whole ethos of equitation. In this book, I show through pictures how the giving of the aids can transform the horse in each and every movement so that our communication with this wonderful animal takes us to new levels of understanding and empathy.

Caring for a Horse or Pony is the new name for one of The Pony Club’s longest-lasting and most popular publications – Keeping a Pony at Grass – which was first published over fifty years ago. Revised and rewritten to combine the latest latest research with tried and tested approaches, the new name also reflects how much has changed in the equestrian world since the first edition. Looking after a horse or pony is hugely rewarding. It’s also a great responsibility, as he depends on us to safeguard his health, safety and general well being. If one is a first-time owner or carer, one may feel daunted at how much there is to learn, but everyone has to take that first step. As one progresses, one’ll find that we never stop learning and that always wanting to find out more is part of the fascination of caring for horses. If one is an experienced owner, it’s always good to review the way one does things.

This is a right royal comedy of errors. Hidden within normal English is a separate language still spoken by those born with silver spoons in their mouths. It’s called Posh. A word of English can be spelt the same but mean something completely different in Posh. If you say the word “Mention” in English, people will understand “Remark upon”; but in Posh this means a large house. Say “Ace” and speakers of Posh will think you are referring to a cold thing one’s butler puts in one’s G&T. This book will help you learn Posh, often with side-splitting consequences. To aid rapid mastery, helpful examples of the various words in the dictionary are given in context. These helpful examples collectively add up to a story within the dictionary – The Fall and Rise of an Important Family – the sorry saga of riches, ruin and redemption that this book really is.

When the music impresario Bryan Morrison died aged 66 in 2008, after two years in a coma following a polo accident, he left behind his unpublished memoir. As a music publisher, manager and agent, Morrison had represented the Pretty Things, Pink Floyd, T. Rex, The Jam, Wham! and many others. He was also the founder and owner of the Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club. In this candid and outspoken book, Morrison reveals the true stories behind why Syd Barrett of Pink Floyd once bit his finger to the bone, the Pretty Things were banned for life from New Zealand, and he became involved with the Kray Twins. He also tells how The Jam kissed goodbye to success in the USA, he received death threats when Robin Gibb left the Bee Gees, and signing a publishing deal with George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley as Wham! Spanning the golden age of British rock ’n’ roll from the 60s to the 80s, this is the extraordinary story of a cigar-chomping, East End entrepreneur, with a passion for art and design, fashion, music and polo.
