* UnfortunateImplications: The main characters all have black sounding names, while the horses that offer the drugs have more white sounding names. The author is black, by the way.

** Horses are herd animals. If they don't do what all the other horses do, they might get kicked out of the herd and die. So Latawnya is a naughty horse for doing what horses are supposed to do to survive?...

* FridgeLogic: How did the horses get the joints and bottles in their mouths anyway? Don't even ''ask'' how they're supposed to skin up or use a lighter.
** One explanation could be that they used matches, from a book instead of a box, and used their lips and teeth to use them to light the "drugs". They may have gotten the generic smokable drugs from another horse, but that leaves the question of where ''that'' horse got them. As for the beers, they don't have the same sort of incisors as a human, but maybe they pried them open with their teeth?
** Page 13 specifically mentions Latawnya having the beer and drugs slapped "out of her hoof" by her sister, suggesting she's holding them as if she had hands. That and other parts (for example, Latawnya's parents hugging her at the end of the book) seem to suggest that the characters were meant to be [[FunnyAnimal Funny Animals]] instead of [[TalkingAnimal Talking Animals]], but the illustrator didn't get the memo.

* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: Like the above trope, [[{{Irony}} this isn't what one would expect]] from an anti-drug book. But just look at that page image - kind of hard to believe someone came up with that sober, isn't it?

* {{Anvilicious}} - Is it ever. The flashback to the OD'd horse probably seals the deal.
* BileFascination - Every time this book gets sold on Amazon, it gets sold out very quickly. People in Germany have been buying rare copies at $450 a pop!
* {{Narm}} - Try not to laugh while the horses are crying over the death of their OD'd companion.
