So, You Think You Love Horses? - Some Reflections on the Nature of Horses and Man, by Howard Lanham

About the author:
As soon as I was able to focus on pictures while still in my crib, I was fixated on horses.  So said my father, so I guess my passion for horses was a genetic mutation.  Growing up in a big city meant limited opportunities to ride, so I did the next best thing.  I read everything and anything I could get my hands on about horses and held on to my dream of owning a horse someday.  The dream came true and I've owned three horses in the past 14 years.   As for the rest of my life, I'm currently an attorney in a general practice, having tried my hand at news editing and tour-group leading.  I also write (a lot) for various journals and newsletters, travel, take photographs, volunteer for local social service agencies and socialize with friends in Mensa.
