The quotees are an eclectic bunch - from historic figures such as Joan of Arc and Plato, to more recent personalities such as Helen Keller, Ty Murray and Ted Turner.
This delightful coffee-table book is also coffee-coloured - all the pictures are sepia for a more dramatic and artistic effect. From cowboys to Mongolian horseman to trick riders and dressage and jumping - most disciplines are featured. There are horses being horses without the hand of humans, and quiet moments between doting owners and their trusty steeds.
Above all, The Quotable Equine celebrates the beauty and mystique of the horse.
His business, Petography™, was inspired by his late and beloved Kuma, the Wonderdog. "After taking fine art, sepia-tone photo portraits of him, and then the two of us together, I howled with delight.

Jim's new animal companion, the canine Caleb continues to give "the kind of wonderment and joy only our animals can offer us", he says.
