Horses, Asses, Zebras, Mules, and Mule Breeding

Article metrics


THE first portion of the title of this interesting work is somewhat misleading, for with the exception of some half-dozen pages which deal mainly with the distinctions between the horse and the other species of the genus, and a description of the supposed new species known as Prejevalsky's Horse, the book entirely relates to asses, zebras, and mules. None of the varieties of the horse which have been produced during the period of its long domestication are referred to. We mention this fact in case the general reader should infer from the title of the work that it was a treatise on the multitudinous domestic varieties of the horse which exist in nearly every quarter of the globe.
