In the late 1990s, a little bay horse with four white socks and a blaze was born. Dubbed “Fergus,” he has now traveled the world many times over by print, web, and satellite, inspired a line of merchandise featuring his visage, and gained a fervently devoted following in the hundreds-of-thousands on Facebook and through other social media outlets. Who is this horse and how can we explain his magnetism? What breed does he represent and at which sport does he excel? What makes him so special?

Fergus the Horse (Equus hilarious) is the creation of artist Jean Abernethy, and the truth is, he is not meant to represent a particular breed, nor does he pursue one specific equestrian discipline. Perhaps it is this generic quality of “every man or woman’s horse” that has led to his immense popularity. “When fans write, ‘Fergus reminds me of my horse,’ I cannot be paid a higher compliment,” says Abernethy. But while his familiarity may woo us, it is most likely his expressiveness, honesty, charm, and of course that keen sense of humor that wins our hearts.

Now, in recognition of Fergus’ growing fan club, Abernethy has brought together the backstory of Fergus the Horse—how he came to be, his early years, the history of his “friends” and support characters—and combined them with his “greatest hits,” including the most-loved comic strips and cartoon moments, some rarely seen sketches, and brand new additions created exclusively for this book. The result is a lively, colorful, highly illustrated treasury that will entertain anyone with an eye for a horse and a need for a laugh.
