Summary
"From his first time riding at age ten, William Shatner has felt a deep love for horses. Whether riding them, communicating with them, or simply appreciating their beauty, he has been enthralled by horses ever since he was a child. And for decades, he has sought to bring that joy to others -- children, veterans, and those with disabilities, among others -- through his annual Hollywood Charity Horse Show. In this book, Shatner speaks from the heart about the remarkable effect horses have had on his life, and on the lives of others. Drawing not just from his own decades of experience but also from a wealth of classic horse stories, this book captures the unique connection between humans and horses -- and the power, courage, mindfulness, and healing that they can inspire in us.

Summary
"The star of The Incredible Dr. Pol shares his amusing, and often poignant, tales from his four decades as a vet in rural Michigan. Dr. Jan Pol is not your typical veterinarian. Born and raised the in Netherlands on a dairy farm, he is the star of Nat Geo Wild's hit show The Incredible Dr. Pol and has been treating animals in rural Michigan since the 1970s. Dr. Pol's more than 20,000 patients have ranged from white mice to 2600 pound horses and everything in between. From the time he was twelve years old and helped deliver a litter of piglets on his family's farm to the incredible moments captured on his hit TV show, Dr. Pol has amassed a wealth of stories of what it's like caring for this menagerie of animals. He shares his own story of growing up surrounded by animals, training to be a vet in the Netherlands, and moving to Michigan to open his first practice in a pre fab house. He has established himself as an empathetic yet no-nonsense vet who isn't afraid to make the difficult decisions in order to do what's best for his patients and their hard working owners. A sick pet can bring heartache, but a sick cow or horse could threaten the very livelihood of a farmer whose modest profits are dependent on healthy livestock. Reminiscent of the classic books of James Herriot Never Turn Your Back on an Angus Cow is a charming, fascinating, and funny memoir that will delight animal lovers everywhere"--Provided by publisher.
