I am currently reading, 'My Animals and Other Family' by Clare Balding. Having been a horse and dog enthusiast and worked on a race yard and at riding stables, I can admit that I have an appreciation of her story and the passion, commitment and time that goes into the work of these animals.
She has a great way of story telling and makes the read an easy one but also a book that is difficult to put down. Funny stories that I relate too particular the adventures on horse back and the naughty pony and devoted dogs. It made me laugh and cry and it some instances it made me sad.
An enjoyable read for any animal enthusiast.
