Dr. Deb delivers again. She wasn't kidding when she said she listened to the suggestions of the people on this forum when she created this workbook.

Chock-full of information, this first volume includes all that was promised, primary of which is the basic knowledge necessary for developing analytical skills. The construction is top-drawer, too--sturdy covers and pages, and wire-bound. I especially like that the plates are large and easy to trace. I remember Dr. Deb telling our class the importance of drawing in learning anatomy--and that anyone CAN draw, if he or she sets the mind to it--so I've been practicing. One of the ways I practice is by tracing, not in an effort to copy something exactly, but to get a sense for proportion. The plates in this workbook are great for this.

Thank you, Dr. Deb, for the incredible effort you put into this workbook and the time you've inevitably spent on the second volume. Thanks also to all of those on this forum that spark interesting and thought-provoking conversation.

Picked up my copy of the workbook at the farrier's anatomy class a few weeks ago. For me it is clarifying many things. Since I've taken the full body anatomy class several times, plus the farrier's anatomy, plus reading the forum, articles, etc. many things have become clear/er looking through the book. I have many pages of notes from our classes. But writing quickly, missing some things, trying to abbreviate, then going back to read later, I found that not everything I wrote down is completely accurate or complete. So the workbook is filling in some holes, answering questions and putting the period on the end of things for me.

One thing that is absolutely wonderful is knowing that when I look at and study the drawings, I know they are without a doubt, ACCURATE. The glossary and explanations are succinct and complete. The book puts everything together in one place. Drawings, photos, labels, explanations, glossary. I really like how condensed it is. With no wasted space or fluffy explanations. I can't tell you how many times I have picked it up to verify something or study something I was curious about after working with my horses.

Looking forward to the next one! (Hurry up Dr. Deb, we ain't gettin' any younger!)

First I looked at all the pics and thought wow look at all the work. Have just started reading the text and was very interested to read the origin of some of the 'common' names of various parts. Eg Cannon bone is gobsmaking! Have been inspired to get out find the base of the neck and the core of the loins today to see how down hill the pony is. What fun! Thank you for all the hard work, it is much appreciated.
Kind Regards
Judy

Yes, we still have a few. I'll reserve one for you. Just follow directions given in the first post in this thread as to how to order. Thanks very much, Dorinda, and sorry to say I won't be in OZ this spring -- possibly later this year, I'll keep you posted. Cheers -- Dr. Deb

This is a message to everybody from Dr. Deb: something you can all do that would be an enormous amount of help is -- if you have a Facebook presence, or friends with whom you communicate through 'social media' -- to mention the availability of 'Conformation: Basic Skills'.

It's absolutely wonderful of you-all to post such positive comments about the book, and I'm certainly glad that it's proving to be good information and also enjoyable.

As we get down to the bottom of the first printing, though, we have to think about being able to supply others who may want to have a copy. Our ability to make further printings depends strictly upon orders received and interest expressed. This also impacts Workbooks nos. 2 and 3 and onwards....they'll have to stay just a gleam in the author's eye unless we have the funds on hand to pay for printing, and that again depends upon orders and interest.

Your help in this matter is greatly appreciated. I am aware that 'social media' seems to be the way to go these days, but I have no presence on Facebook or Twitter. Satisfied customers and good students may very well, however!

Thanks very much to everyone -- Dr. Deb
