    Fergus the Horse (Equus hilarious) is the creation of artist Jean Abernethy, and the truth is, he is not meant to represent a particular breed, nor does he pursue one specific equestrian discipline. Perhaps it is this generic quality of “every man or woman’s horse” that has led to his immense popularity. 

    Now, in recognition of Fergus’ growing fan club, Abernethy has brought together the backstory of Fergus the Horse—how he came to be, his early years, the history of his “friends” and support characters—and combined them with his “greatest hits,” including the most-loved comic strips and cartoon moments, some rarely seen sketches, and brand new additions created exclusively for this book. The result is a lively, colorful, highly illustrated treasury that will entertain anyone with an eye for a horse and a need for a laugh.
