Author Notes

Frank Holmes has been penning horse-related feature articles and historical books for more than 35 years. His interests have always been centered on the historical aspects of the western horse breeds, and his broad-based knowledge of the origins of the Quarter Horse, Paint, Appaloosa and Palomino registries have established him as one of the pre-eminent equine historians of all time. As a former staff writer for Western Horseman magazine, Frank co-authored volumes 2 through 5 of the immensely popular Legends book series.
