5.0 out of 5 stars Great for young and old! 16 Dec 2013
By Deirdre
Format:Kindle Edition
I've always loved horses and my son is in to cowboys - so I bought this for my kindle for us to have something we could both read together. He likes it and it brings back the fascination I had for horses as a child. Its a lovely book - I highly recommend it - I also bought the Horse in Film from the same author as a book - and that is really entertaining - a good read for anyone interested in knowing more about the real horses (yes horses not horse!) from films like Black Beauty.

I've never really been interested in horses or ponies, but this book's description really intrigued me and I bought it (through amazon.com) to read it with my niece, and ended also borrowing it to my daughter.

Well, this book is much more than I imagined. Very good to satisfy a child's great curiosity, to be a much appreciated read for a teen, but also a very informative book for an adult like me.

It is not just the matter of colors (I would never have imagined that horses could have so many...) but it's also about the many examples given, the references to old and modern movies that I really loved and which made me feel like watching them, again or for the first time. And I've already searched some of the breeds online because this book really stimulated my curiosity.

There are also many beautiful images of the various breeds and so many curiosities, like old film makers dyeing horses with lemon or cherry gelatine to get the "perfect" color!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Horse and pony colours 25 Jun 2014
By Clare O'Beara TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
This book captivated me - literally, since I meant to just glance at it and read it later, but ended up reading from start to finish. The strong, beautiful images played a large part.

I love horses and have long been interested in coat colourations. In Ireland we did not have Appaloosas when I was growing up, but I read Fabulous by Dorothy Benedict, part of a three-book series which I later acquired in full. This series includes Appaloosas, black, palomino, paint, zebra dun coloured horses. Now with DNA testing as this e-book explains, it is possible to test horses to see what genes and factors they carry and which are being expressed or dominant, and not expressed or recessive.

While Lesley Lodge stresses that colour is secondary compared to choosing the right size, breed and temperament for your needs, she then looks at some fine examples of horses. The two main coat colours are black and red, with other colours being dilute forms. The skin can also be pink or black. Then there are markings such as blaze, star and sock, as well as the gaudier Appaloosa or paint markings.

Mainly the book focuses on horses of the film world, as these bring handsome horses to the viewer and the British-based author is involved in the film scene. The well-known horses include Trigger, the Black Stallion, Shadowfax and Tornado. She doesn't mention that Tom Mix rode a handsome pinto called Tony. However pintos get their star in Hidalgo. She also left out 'Into The West' shot in Ireland, in which seven grey horses were employed to portray Tir na nOg.

The target audience seems to be young adults. If you love horses you will love this and you may learn something too because our knowledge is expanding at a fantastic rate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous for fans of horses 31 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In this Lesley Lodge discusses the range of colours – 50! – and includes some really fabulous photographs.

A horse's colour at birth is no guarantee of what colour he or she will be at adulthood and if they they end up in the world of cinema and TV their colours could change again, as the author explains in various chapters in which she elucidates how colours are chosen for movies and TV programmes and the artful use of make-up.

If you like spotting continuity errors, as Lesley obviously does, you'll not be surprised that in Seabiscuit, the leading horse changes colour through the film from light honey-coloured bay to darker reddish bay.

Horse and Pony Colours, although aimed at a younger audience, makes a great companion book to Lights! Camera! Gallop.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marmaduke Jinks 13 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
A really well written and fun read.Brief and concise it still manges to cover a wide range of topics, ranging from an overview of the horse species through film and literature even to genetics. Entertainingly written it is a first class prima with further in depth fields of study well signposted and documented.
