    About the Book (from the back cover):

    ******Curtis Brown's careful study of animals in the wild, purebred dogs in and out of the ring, breed standards, canine literature and research results, coupled with his experience as an engineer, professor and dog fancier, has produced a long needed book for the serious student of canine locomotion. It is fortified by his painstaking analysis of thousands of frames of slow-motion film of canine gait. The book is factual and analytical, free of the errors and assumptions we have inherited from early writers based on their knowledge of the horse. The book is well illustrated throughout with pictures and drawings. The science of canine locomotion has come of age with the publication of this scholarly textbook.******

Condition: VERY GOOD book, the covers have some rubs and light wear to the spine ends and corner tips; internally tight, bright, clean and unmarked; in an only FAIR dustjacket that has chips, creases and closed tears to its edges, corners and spine ends, sunning to the spine, rubs and scrapes to the front and rear panels, and clipped flap corners, but is nonetheless holding together and doing its job. About Helen Marie Capps (excerpted from her online Obituary in the Fairfield / Suisun Daily Republic): ******Helen Marie Capps, b. Dec. 4, 1943 d. Aug. 10, 2016. Helen worked many jobs in her life, but training and showing dogs was her life. Starting when she was 10 years old with her family dog, she spent most of her life training dogs and with her sister, Pat Haas, she wrote The Best Dog is the Trained Dog. She eventually turned dog training into a successful business. After getting her first Brittany in 1986, she trained six Brittanys to several conformation, obedience, agility and hunting championships. The Brittany and dog training world will miss her vibrant and helpful personality. Donations may be sent in Helen Capps name to the American Brittany Rescue.******

  • 1966 A HORSE BREEDER'S BINDER w/150-200 Handwritten & Official Sheets w/ information on MARES BRED by Russell Smith 1966 A HORSE BREEDER'S BINDER w/150-200 Handwritten & Official Sheets w/ information on MARES BRED
    Russell Smith

    Three Ring Binder filled with Handwritten Notes and Official Record Sheets on Mares Bred (Pacific Coast Quarter Horses) during 1965 and 1966. Horse names include: BLUE CACTUS, Jesse Bar, BLUE LEDGER, Blue Miller, BOLD MINUTE, (Copay?) Coleen, CAT SOX, and many many MORE. For each horse, or perhaps for each time a mare is bred, there is a page with some handwritten notes followed by what appears to be an official page filled with small boxes with handwritten code letters in many of the boxes (I assume breeders know what the code letters stand for). Approximately 150 - 200 total sheets, meaning 75-100 pages of notes with 75-100 official sheets with handwritten letter codes. There is no definitive information on…

Approximately 150 - 200 total sheets, meaning 75-100 pages of notes with 75-100 official sheets with handwritten letter codes. There is no definitive information on the binder's owner, perhaps RUSSELL SMITH because there is a personal letter (apparently unrelated to horse breeding) laid-in the front on his letterhead which reads: "Russell Smith / R-S / Registered Quarter Horses / Paicines, California." Russell Smith was actively involved in the PCQHA, so it would make sense that the binder was his. However, the letter is dated 1955 and the horse information is from 1965-1966, so... GOOD condition, some of the pages have pulled away from the 3 rings and are torn at the holes, but they remain in their proper order; otherwise the pages are bright, clean, clear and fully legible. An interesting look at Quarter Horse Breeding in Northern California.
