The Essential Fergus the Horse - Jean Abernethy
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.
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.
It doesn’t matter if you ride, whether you show your horse or just have a pasture pet, this book has something every horse lover can relate to!
No matter your age, your preferred discipline, or breed, Fergus’ friends, adventures and brand of humour appeals to everyone.
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.

“Fergus has an answer for everything his long-suffering owner asks him to do – or is about to ask him to do. He’s so sharp and his creator is so intuitive, she’s thought of virtually every horsey scenario to enable Fergus to speak to us as we think – and now know! – our horses do. He speaks for them all of them.” Essex Rider
“Jean Abernethy clearly knows her horses and their humour. This entertaining book will doubtless hit a note with many riders who try to juggle home life and horses. The book is lively and colourful that will entertain anyone with an eye for a horse. It can be read through at a single sitting, or dipped into at will where the reader will always find something to giggle at. This book is highly recommended, although it’s the wrong time of year now, this would be a perfect stocking filler for Christmas or a wonderful birthday present for anyone who has any contact with their own Equus Hilarious.” Jacqui Broderick, Lavender & White Publishing (you can read the full review here)
