Never Trust A Sneaky Pony

(5 customer reviews)


Veterinarian, artist and author Madisoon Seamans is a lifelong professional horseman. The author (Dr. Madison Seamans) and his new book: “Never Trust a Sneaky Pony (and other things they didn’t teach me in vet school)” is the result of his true experiences as a veterinarian in equine practice for over thirty years. This is a “James Herriot meets Jeff Foxworthy” approach to instruct and entertain–real life adventures of a traveling horse doctor, you can’t make this stuff up!. It is a fairly extensive study on the common medical problems seen in horses and how they are diagnosed and treated. Though the stories usually involve horses, they would appeal to just about anyone who loves animals and some who just don’t know it yet.

  1. Sarah Webster

    Loved this book with its good information peppered with a lot of humor. I could see myself in some of those stories. A must read for equine lovers such as me.

  2. Mary Bender

    “The privilege of possessing horses carries with it the price of responsibility.” If you love horses, common sense, humor, and are at all interested in learning more about these creatures or the veterinary career, and want to feel like you’re talking to an old friend while you do it, I highly suggest you get and read a copy of Dr. Madison Seamans Dvm’s book, ‘Never Trust a Sneaky Pony (And other things they didn’t teach me in vet school)’. Very reminiscent of a mix of James Herriot’s and Ben Green’s books, with a touch of Hank the Cowdog and maybe some Louis L’Amour thrown in. Right up my alley, and probably yours too! I can never learn enough about this animal that I’ve been obsessed with since I was a kid and what a treat to learn from such a pro as my friend Dr. Seamans. Dr. Seamans has the talent to explain complicated anatomy, procedures, decisions, etc at the level that anybody – even this ‘jack of all trades’ ag teacher – can understand, and does it with a sense of humor that will have you laughing out loud wherever you are! Thank you for your extensive time you put into this informative, entertaining, and enjoyable read, Dr. Seamans – I thoroughly loved it, and will be keeping it as a solid ‘you need to read this’ recommendation to others.

    I came across this book from a FB group and just had to buy it for a Christmas present. Well let me tell you, it almost didn’t get wrapped. I started reading out of curiosity and could not put it down. As a critter owner (horses, donkeys, goats, pigs, cows, chickens, dogs…), I thoroughly enjoyed Dr Seamans’s stories. I could not stop laughing. A true testament to life is crazier than fiction. You just can’t make these things up! Dr Seamans offers a glimpse into the life of veterinary medicine from the “boots on the ground” perspective. The reader can see the events unfold and becomes immersed in the story as if it was occurring right in front of them. Very well written. If you are an animal lover, or giving this as a gift for one, you will not be disappointed.

    I am a huge James Herriot fan and have followed Dr. Seamans’ posts on HVC (Facebook Vet Group) for quite some time now. I find his responses knowledgeable, presented with wit and down-to-earth reasoning. When I noticed he had a book out, I just had to get it. I was not disappointed. It’s filled with much vet information, peppered with great insights and humor. A very fun and interesting read. I got a sense of what was going on and the animals involved literally “came to life”, as did the people. A truly enjoyable, well-written book.
