This full color official guide contains information to learn more about the natural history and unique adaptations found in the Maryland herd of Assateague horses and as well as the physical features used to identify individuals among the herd. Also, inside this 8.5x11", 36 page book, you'll find detailed descriptions of each horse's color and markings, the other horses they are with, and their typical range. Each horse is showcased with stunning photographs of their left and right side, and a full description including their Keiper numbers, markings, and usual locations.
The guide also include useful information and best practices to keep yourself and the horses safe while visiting the island and observing their natural and wild behaviors. The guide will be updated annually to add each year's new foals, and to say good-bye the horses who have passed.
***Field Guides are available by pre-order only. Please allow extra processing time. The price includes an donation to AIA and shipping.
