With the aid of two expert consultants - equine veterinary surgeon Janet Eley and Barrie Hosie, stud groom to the Duke of Roxburgh - Susan McBane has written a book for novice breeders who are fairly experienced with horses and ponies. Modern Horse Breeding is unique in that it is presented in two parts. Part 1, Veterinary Considerations, includes chapters on: why you need a vet; reproductive function in mare and stallion; genetics and heredity; pregnancy; before, during, and after foaling; nutritional requirement of mare, foal, and young stock; diseases and abnormalities; artificial insemination and embryo transfer. Part 2, Practical Aspects, will help you understand: the right and wrong reasons for breeding a horse; financial matters; the foundation stock; sending the mare to stud; care of the pregnant mare; what happens after breeding. Easy-to-read, reliable, and up-to-date, Modern Horse Breeding includes warnings about when to call in expert help, points out the signs of impending problems, and details the foaling process starting a month beforehand. (7 1/2 x 9 3/4, 160 pages, b&w photos, illustrations, charts)
