Review: Opening a book, with such knowledge and details was surely at first, a great surprise. Kay Frydenborg, author of Wild Horse Scientists, has reopened minds to the world of wild horses. Learning about what they eat, how to tell them apart, and describing their lifestyle and the dangers they face, truly catches the reader's eye. This book is one of the Scientists in the Field Books.
Going into the adventurous life of Dr. Ron Keiper, an ethologist, and Dr. Jay Kirkpatrick, wildlife reproductive physiologist, helping horses everywhere. Through the unfathomable summers, and bone- chilling winters, and the stress of creating the now miraculous medicine that has saves thousands of valuable horse lives. Digging for fossils and mining through old caves, searching old decaying bones and miraculous births, a story of untold adventure awaits any reader who picks up this book.
Wild Horse Scientists is intended for fourth grade readers and above, due to large words, it is best for stronger readers. As long as you love horses, you will love this exciting book. Going through the life of horses, standing side by side with their packs, anyone can definitely count on reading this book a couple hundred times. In the book you will be learning about the handsome boy colt that will grow to be even more beautiful adult, and the two young female colts and how they survive the hardships of life. Learning how to differentiate a pony from a horse, to learning how to tell the same color animals apart by bands. Wild Horse Scientists is an amazing book, one which I will definitely read again! The world of horses and adventure awaits go grab it.
