Still Crazy for Horses provides beautiful pictures of various breeds of horses and an overview of their characteristics and history. The following breeds are included: Rocky Mountain Horse, Connemara, Friesan, Akhal-Teke, Clydesdale, Bashkir Curly, Haflinger, Norwegian Fjord, Exmoor pony, hackney, mustang, Newfoundland pony, Australian Stock horse, Percheron, and Belgian Trakehner and Tennesse Walking Horse. The first page reviews the birth of a foal up to his weaning from the mare, and the last page is a list of websites and addresses of various associations for the different breeds of horse. There are two coloured photos of each breed, one being an 8.5 x 11, and as well a pull-out poster.
As an inexpensive, attractive photo album, Still Crazy for Horses is sure to find appeal among upper elementary students who love horses. In some of the details of place of origin and of prominent colours, this book differs from The Ultimate Horse by Elwyn Hartley Edwards (Dorling Kindersley, 1991), but, given that the main purpose of this book is to interest readers in various breeds of horses, it succeeds very well. A most useful additional to the recreational reading collection.
