visión de conjunto:Críticas 'This book was a fun and quick read. I enjoyed learning more about Jean Abernethy the artist and of course I loved reading some of my all-time favorite Fergus comics that are also included in the book'. 'This book has both writhing which explains the backstory to the creation of Fergus and numerous popular comics in addition to some book exclusives. Abernathy's cartoons are known for their reliability to the horse lover's life.' 'Fergus makes us laugh whether he is bedeviled by flies or explaining to his rider the benefits of falling off: 'You wanted to practice groundwork and flatwork and you wanted to practice without stirrups. And there you are...flat on the ground and with no stirrups. Looks like a success to me!' 'Every equestrian home needs a reminder that all horses provide humor and when your humor has been exhausted by your own horse's antics - then just remind yourself by flicking through The Essential Fergus that they are probably all from the same mold.' 'Have you seen Fergus the Horse? If not you're in for a treat. ... Abernethy portrays Fergus with bright colorful illustrations that will enthrall readers of all ages. You'll likely recognize your own horse in his amusing predicaments.' 'How cool to have Fergus and his buddies corralled in one spot! I've enjoyed his escapades so much over the years. This book will be a great way to enjoy them again and share them with others.' -- Christine Hamilton Editor 'I've only recently become acquainted with Fergus but we immediately hit it off. He's just the kind of horse I like to get to know and figure out--not afraid to speak his mind a great sense of humour and he can teach us all a thing or two. Horses have always been my greatest teachers...but Fergus is the first animated one!' -- Jonathan Field Trainer Clinician and Author of The Art of Liberty Training for Horses Reseña del editor In the late 1990s a little bay horse with four white socks and a blaze was born. Dubbed 'Fergus' he has now traveled the world many times over by print web and satellite inspired a line of merchandise featuring his visage and gained a fervently devoted following in the hundreds-of-thousands on Facebook and through other social media outlets. Who is this horse and how can we explain his magnetism? What breed does he represent and at which sport does he excel? What makes him so special? Fergus the Horse (Equus hilarious) is the creation of artist Jean Abernethy and the truth is he is not meant to represent a particular breed nor does he pursue one specific equestrian discipline. Perhaps it is this generic quality of 'every man or woman's horse' that has led to his immense popularity. While his familiarity may woo us it is most likely his expressiveness honesty charm and of course that keen sense of humour that wins our hearts. Now in recognition of Fergus' growing fan club Abernethy has brought together the backstory of Fergus the Horse-how he came to be his early years the history of his 'friends and support characters-and combined them with his 'greatest hits' including the most-loved comic strips and cartoon moments some rarely seen sketches and brand new additions created exclusively for this book. The result is a lively colourful highly illustrated treasury that will entertain anyone with an eye for a horse and a need for a laugh.
