During this time she has got to know many New Zealand orca intimately; she calls them her friends and can identify some by sight.

Whips and Whipmaking
Author: David W. Morgan
Publisher: Cornell Maritime Press/Tidewater Publishers
Whipmaking is the highest refinement of the art of leather braiding. This revised edition introduces another major category of whipsthose made in the Mongol tradition. Braiding details are shown in an extensive selection of photographs that also serve to document the geographic distribution of the whips; their historic use and characteristics are explained in detailed captions. A new chapter describes the evolution of a whip design that became world famous through its association with Hollywood. The whips used by Indiana Jones were all made by the author, David W. Morgan, and the films prompted an immediate revival of interest in whips for performance and sport use.

Paddock Paradise (PP) is both a book title and a concept of a more naturalized way of horse keeping based upon the research done on the Great Basin wild horses by natural horse care expert and author, Jaime Jackson. PP is a must-read for any horse-owner or professional who wants to create an environment of more optimal mental and physical health for their horses while drastically reducing the number of hours spent on 'barn' chores. Jackson explains to readers why the concept works and how to create one in a simple and inexpensive manner. Not only do horses exercise more but also eat in the manner that nature intended . Research has shown that free-roaming horses are healthier than stabled ones but many kinds of pasture grasses can cause laminitis. PP is the solution for these issues and others that plauge horse owners around the world. "PP is an emerging trend," according to a summer 2011 issue of "The Horse" magazine.
Braiding Rawhide Horse Tack
Author: Robert L. Woolery
Publisher: Cornell Maritime Pr/Tidewater Pub
Unlike many texts on the subject, this valuable, revised and expanded second edition of the popular instruction manual for novice rawhide workers assumes no prior knowledge or experience. In over 180 drawings and photographs, the reader is shown every step of the process, beginning with a fresh cowhide, continuing through cutting strings and braiding, and ending with finished reatas, bosals, hobbles, or reins. Along the way, the author discusses the readily available tools and implements needed, which the beginner can make by following the included directions. The chapters on braiding provide simple techniques for producing many basic patterns, which may then be modified or enlarged to yield endless variations. Users or collectors of braided rawhide will value the book for its system of specific things to look for when buying materials, how to care for them, and how each item was produced in the past.
