Swords are for fighting,


  1. Whenever I read about horse, my mind often wander to Seabiscuit. I think that, that was the first movie that I watched that make me intrigue to learn more about horses. Great review and I think that all horse lovers or animal lovers in general would definitely enjoy this book.
