2 Little Brown Jug: 2 Disc Collector's Edition Celebrating the 60th Anniversary of Harness Racing's Premier Pacing Event!
No Place WBNS-10TV 2005 First Edition (?) DVD As New 
2 DVD disc set. Like new jewel case for set. DVDs in New condition. Commentary by Dom Tiberi, WBNS-10TV and Phil Pikleny. Scarce video. Welcome to the Little Brown Jug Website! The Little Brown Jug is the most prestigious 3-year-old pacing race in North America. Each year more people journey to Delaware, Ohio to witness the "Jug" than to see any other harness race. In 1997, over 56,000 racing fans were in attendance. This is the largest crowd in history known to watch a harness race. A horse has to win two heats to be declared the winner of the Jug. There are typically two or three elimination heats with the top finishing horses returning for a second heat. If no horse has won two heats, the winners return again for a final race. This makes for a very interesting afternoon of racing. Little Brown Jug day is almost like an Oktoberfest ... People come early to tailgate. Sports Illustrated once said that the biggest cocktail party in the state of Ohio is at the Delaware County Fairgrounds on Jug day.

6 World Cup Dressage Final: 2005, Las Vegas: VHS Featuring: Anky Van Grunsven, Edward Gal, Debbie McDonald and Brentina, Robert Dover, Et Al
Equestrian Vision 2005 Non-Book New 
Video Tape; 5 x 8 x 1 1/4; Brand new, still in shrinkwrap. Run time ca. 90 minutes. "Expert commentary by Richard Davison. Narrated by Jamie Hawksfield". This was an absolutely fabulous World Cup Championship. And the finals, the musical freestyle, the kur, on Saturday night, were breath taking. Was fortunate to be present at this event; the excitement kept rising through the entire evening. Anky van Grunsven won, but to me, the indisputable highlight of the competition was Debbie McDonald and Brentina's Motown freestyle. The cheering almost blew the roof off the arena. In 2009 McDonald and Brentina retired from competition, the ceremony was held at this same championship. Many of the riders and horses, are familiar from the current competitions, as well as the 2008 summer Olympics, and some are now retired. If you want to spend 90 minutes in dressage heaven, this is the video for you.

His father was placing him on the backs of horses before he could walk. One of his early vivid memories is of a scary spill, at age 5 or 6, off a fast galloping pony. A few years later he was harnessing and handling in the field his own team of work horses. Until his parents found out, he was breaking to ride not only the young work horses but the feeder cattle as well. His first experiences as a trainer were teaching tricks to a pony 65 years ago and gentling and starting two riding horses for a great uncle 60 years ago. The first 50 years of his adult life were spent as an academic biologist, trying to understand the behavior of animals and humans. He is a 35-year continuous breeder of American Quarter Horses and still starts the young horses bred and reared on the Michigan farm that he and Lorrie have operated for 37 of their 59 shared years. He is author or editor of a dozen books.. In his earlier life he was for 43 years a University of Michigan biology professor. He is a medalist and member of the National Academy of Sciences, past president of the Human Behavior and Evolution Society, and the Animal Behavior Society’s Animal Behaviorist of the Year: 2002.

13 Allison, Keith & Christopher Day A Guide to Alternative Therapies for Horses
London J. A. Allen 1996 0851316654 / 9780851316659 Stapled wraps Fine 
Soft cover is stapled wraps. Pages are clean and tight; this is a NEW book. Illustrated with b/w drawings. Sections are: Introduction; Demise of natural medicines and therapies; growing demand for holistic medicine; Terminology; Alternative therapies available for horses; saddlery and farriery; useful addresses. Very handy guide for caring for your horse. Too often, for people and animals, the medical field wants to push only 'modern' and high tech cares and cures. But low tech, common sense approaches can be as, or more so, effective in treating your horse's needs. As my beloved old vet would say "less is more...." , and when possible, start on that basis. Amazing how much cold or hot water, compresses/poultices, rest, liniments/rubs, and so on, can do to heal your horse up just fine. In today's faster paced world we sometimes forget that time, and slowly but surely, will heal as well, if not better, prolonging the life, including working life, of your horse, and the length of your partnership. ; British Association of Holistic Nutrition Series; B & W illustrations; 0.3 x 4.9 x 0.5 Inches; 40 pages; Cover has slight rubbing, tiny bit of bumping to corners.

19 Bailey, Nancy Clifford of Drummond Island
Lincoln, NE iUniverse 2001 0595179509 / 9780595179503 Paperback New 
9.20 X 6.12 X 0.49 inches; xii, 159 pages; Soft cover has a black spine with white lettering. Michigan characters come in all shapes and species, including the talented and charming Clifford. Clifford is quite accomplished. He’s an abstract painter, a dancer and the subject of a published biography, and goes on statewide tours to spread the message of empathy. He also has four hooves and a tail. Clifford , also known as “Clifford of Drummond Island, ” is the Morgan horse owned, trained — and cherished — by Nancy J. Bailey, who also penned his biography of the same name. Clifford was a replacement for what she called the “perfect horse, ” Sharolyn, who died of a horse disease eight weeks after she acquired her. Soon afterward Bailey met a 2-year-old colt named Buckets who wasn’t exactly what she was looking for: He was a “mouthy chestnut colt. ” However, Bailey wanted a horse, and maybe it was better to get something different from the mare she mourned. Eventually Bailey gave Buckets the name Clifford after her great uncle, who had been a redhead, too, and whose descendants populating Drummond Island also were redheads. Thus began Bailey’s introduction into life with Clifford, also a relative neophyte to the human-horse experience. “I was new to horses, ” she said, “and he was new to the world. ”Clifford provided plenty of comic relief. Bailey’s dad and uncle once were working on a gazebo, digging postholes and other tasks. Clifford, according to Bailey, found the whole construction process fascinating. If he found a stray board lying anywhere, he’d pick up the board and move it. Another time, her dad and uncle were on hands and knees, looking down into a posthole, when Clifford joined in by lowering his head and checking out the posthole as well. A terrific true-life story of a special horse and the special woman who has helped him express himself.
