Many people are aware that horses sleep standing up (which makes it easier to flee from danger), But how many know that they must spend some time sleeping lying down in order to have REM sleep? This is one of the topics of the 101 questions answered in this readable compendium of equine facts, the third volume in the publisher's pet series, after Why Do Cats Always Land on Their Feet?and Why Do Dogs Drink Out of the Toilet?, also coauthored by Good Morning Americaveterinary contributor Becker and Gina Spadafori. The other coauthors are former Horse Illustratededitor Audrey Pavia (Horses for Dummies) and writer Teresa Becker (Chicken Soup for the Horse Lover's Soul). While Ian Whitelaw and Julie Whitaker's The Horse: A Miscellany of Equine Knowledgeis more comprehensive, the price of this modest volume makes it affordable for even the smallest library. Recommended for small to medium-sized public libraries.
