Jean Abernethy has been producing equestrian-related drawings, horse portraits, and horse cartooning for more than 30 years. She has illustrated several books and instructional articles, technical how-to drawings, and diagrams for instructional purposes. She has also done children's and fantasy illustration. Her work has taken her coast-to-coast to farms and equestrian events where she's been involved with a wide variety of horse breeds, sports and disciplines.
"This book has both writhing, which explains the backstory to the creation of Fergus and numerous popular comics in addition to some book exclusives. Abernathy's cartoons are known for their reliability to the horse lover's life."--California Riding Magazine "This book was a fun and quick read. I enjoyed learning more about Jean Abernethy the artist, and of course, I loved reading some of my all-time favorite Fergus comics that are also included in the book."--Maryland Equestrian "Fergus makes us laugh, whether he is bedeviled by flies or explaining to his rider the benefits of falling off: 'You wanted to practice groundwork and flatwork and you wanted to practice without stirrups. And there you are...flat on the ground and with no stirrups. Looks like a success to me!"--New York Horse Magazine "Every equestrian home needs a reminder that all horses provide humor and when your humor has been exhausted by your own horse's antics - then just remind yourself by flicking through The Essential Fergus that they are probably all from the same mold."--Haynet "Read this vibrant collection if you're a Fergus aficionado or just love to laugh."--Equine Journal "Just as Snoopy is cool and Calvin and Hobbes is imaginative, Fergus the Horse is gen-u-ine equine. ... If you're as horse-crazy as I am or simply enjoy clever cartoons, The Essential Fergus is for you."--Saddle Seeks Horse "Have you seen Fergus the Horse? If not, you're in for a treat. ... Abernethy portrays Fergus with bright, colorful illustrations that will enthrall readers of all ages. You'll likely recognize your own horse in his amusing predicaments."--Trail Rider Magazine "My family loves the Fergus comics and this book will make it even easier to share his wisdom and humor with others. I know what I'm buying for Christmas presents this year!"--Stacy Westfall, Clinician, Freestyle Reining Champion, Winner of the 2006 Road to the Horse Colt-Starting Competition, and 2012 Cowgirl Hall of Fame Inductee "If Sgt. Reckless were alive today, she and Fergus would be the best of friends! Fergus brings a smile to my face every time I read his cartoon."--Robin Hutton, Author of the New York Times Bestseller Sgt. Reckless: America's War Horse "How cool to have Fergus and his buddies corralled in one spot! I've enjoyed his escapades so much over the years. This book will be a great way to enjoy them again and share them with others."--Christine Hamilton, Editor, Western Horseman Magazine "Fergus is that rare example of a horse with his hooves in two communities: He speaks for horses, and he speaks for people who love them. When I read a Fergus comic panel, I always chuckle, first loudly and then ruefully because the comic is funny--and I've been in that situation before."--Larri Jo Starkey, Editor, The American Quarter Horse Journal "Jean Abernethy has an artistic gift and a comic wit that makes us all grin. I am thrilled that so many of Fergus's adventures can now be viewed together in a book."--Lisa Wysocky, Author of My Horse My Partner and the Cat Enright Equestrian Mystery Series "I've only recently become acquainted with Fergus, but we immediately hit it off. He's just the kind of horse I like to get to know and figure out--not afraid to speak his mind, a great sense of humor, and he can teach us all a thing or two. Horses have always been my greatest teachers...but Fergus is the first animated one!"--Jonathan Field, Trainer, Clinician, and Author of The Art of Liberty Training for Horses
