From the Publisher:  Color has fascinated horse lovers for centuries, and the story of the formation of the different breeds is closely tied to the subject of color. The Equine Tapestry explores the role color has played, both from a historical perspective and in changing trends of the modern horse world. Combining a modern understanding of genetics with a wealth of historical documentation, this series gives a more complete picture of the founding of the different breeds and shows how this relates to the unusual colors popular in the present day. An Introduction to Colors and Patterns opens the series with a look at the different colors and patterns, giving detailed explanations written in plain English. Full color photos and illustrations are used throughout to enhance the text.
