All horses very curious are
And things which they espy afar
Arouse their curiosity:
They wonder what on earth they see.

With ears pricked up and cautious mien
They come to see. When they have seen,
They snort and turn and off they scurry
In a contemptuous desperate hurry.

This picture book has a little paragraph or poem to go with each illustration.  The poems are all about different topics related to horses.

Download A Horse Book from gutenberg.org.

I used the illustrations and text from this book and created a cursive copybook to use in your home.  You can download it from my Google documents here.

Please- feel free to share the file with your friends or on your website.  I would appreciate a link back to http://homeschoolcommons.com.  Thank you!

    These illustrations are beautiful. I see the link for the copybook, but I can’t find anywhere (on this post, or in the copywork doc) what the title of the original book is, or its author, or illustrator… I’d love to find the original work. Thanks so much for this AMAZING site! I am SO glad I found it!!!
