In the late 1990s, a little bay horse with 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, and gained a devoted following in the hundreds-of-thousands on Facebook and other social media. Who is this horse?
Fergus the Horse (Equus hilarious) is the creation of Jean Abernethy, and the truth is, he isn’t meant to represent any one breed or discipline. Perhaps it’s this generic “everyhorse” quality that’s led to his popularity. And it’s his expressiveness, honesty, charm, and keen sense of humor that truly wins our hearts.
Now Abernethy has brought together the backstory of Fergus the Horse—how he came to be, his early years, the history of his “friends”—and combined it with his “greatest hits,” including most-loved comic strips, some personal sketches, and brand new additions.
