There are numerous books covering the subject of feeding horses, but this book provides detailed information on feeding specific categories of horses depending on their age and use. Part 1 describes what a horse needs in terms of nutrients and which feeds to provide them. Part 2 gives in-depth information on feeding the specific categories—leisure horses, working horses, competition horses, broodmares, foals, stallions, veteran horses, donkeys and mules; discusses how feed affects behaviour and temperament; and provides an alphabetical listing of health problems related to feeding. This book is a must for anyone—from the individual horse owner to the career student—who has ever been concerned about what should and should not go in a horse's feed bucket.
