I didn't buy this book -- it contains some misinformation. This may seem a bit knit-picky, but if the book is to be a Guide to Horses and Ponies, then I expect ALL the information to be researched and correct. Peruvian Pasos do NOT come from Columbia. They are NOT the same thing as Paso Finos. Both breeds have common ancestors, but they took different routes in their development (like Foxtrotters and Walking Horses have common ancestors but are not the same). A phone call to either the Peruvian Paso Registry or the Paso Fino Registry will verify this. I don't know if there are any other errors in the book but didn't trust that all the info was correct after seeing that.
