animal husbandry "Easy" is the key word to Smith's book. Easy to read, easy to understand, and above all easy to carry around, this volume is destined for the tack room as a ready reference. Writing for the layperson in an open and straightforward style, Smith offers explanations of various diseases, types of appropriate diets, basic horse care, and how to recognize symptoms. In addition, she has included a chapter on how to select a veterinarian. Especially helpful is the bibliography listing other essential publications. This book is not only thorough, but it is written with the "horse owner on a budget" in mind. Highly recommended for public libraries, this work should also be included in libraries that collect in the area of animal health sciences.
