Ten top books about intelligent animals

Karen Joy Fowler is the author of six novels and three short story collections.

One of her top ten books about intelligent animals, as shared at the Guardian:
Horse Heaven by Jane Smiley

A capacious and audacious novel about the world of horseracing, which includes several horse narrators – Froney's Sis, Epic Steam, Residual – but my favorite is Justa Bob, a gelding with a good attitude despite his long, hard fall down.
Read about another entry on the list.

Horse Heaven is on Megan Wasson's list of eight great books about horses.
