In his humorously anthropomorphic way, Hovis encourages us all to be more understanding and respectful of the rhythms of nature-- even when they seem out of sync. His mischievous musings offer both amusement and food for thought, making Hovis' diary a unique window into the life of an erudite horse and the fascinating world he inhabits. April showers may bring May flowers, but for Hovis and countless others in similar circumstances, they also bring unique challenges. By recognizing these and acting accordingly, we can better support our livestock and respect the natural world, regardless of the season or the weather.
