The act of following the outline of the drawings with a colouring pencil helps the reader to concentrate on details of structure which might be glossed over in conventional studies by eye alone. The instructions to colour separately specific parts, listed with each drawing, ensures that each part is carefully identified and yet, as the task of colouring in is a pleasant artistic endeavour, the learning process is amusing and interesting. Gone are the days of poring over dry texts, struggling to remember names of obscure parts of bones and how they fit together. After just one page of colouring, the student will be amazed at how much anatomical knowledge has been painlessly absorbed.
I strongly recommend photocopying each page as it's studied and only colouring the copy. Then the inevitable mistakes can be corrected without spoiling the original, and the book can be re-used for revision at a later date.
I think this is a wonderful book and believe every veterinary student should own a copy (buy a packet of 12 colouring pencils too!) The book will repay its cost many times, not just for 1st year anatomy students but also for those in clinical studies and, dare I say it, out in practice, where a sound understanding of anatomy is essential for effective diagnosis and treatment.
A magnificent book. Buy it now!
Dont be put off by the word "coloring" - this book is marvellous.
The drawings are brilliantly clear and easy to apply to the horse. The text is well set out and clearly understood, even for those of us whose eyesight may not be what it was!!.
I think this is the book on anatomy that most have been looking for - not just for students of equine and vetinary studies but anyone who owns or has interest in horses. I am truly delighted with it.
I think it is really enjoyable and educational
Use light coloured pencils and take your time. The text is very informative, it is a classic, a must for a veterinary student even if they are not equid specialists . Yes, equid is the proper word!
