In the illistrations in which they are showing you how to do a standing wrap, the person who is wrapping is wrapping in the wrong direction. Also while they are wrapping, you can see the they are kneeling right in front of the horses knee, which is the dumbest thing to do, b/c if the horse moves his leg, you will get whopped in the head with his knee.

The book was great if you want to know how something is done with a large animal and if you want to becaome a large animal vet with all the pictures and step-by-step instructions. I am looking forward to reading the other Cherry Hill books.
