This practical handbook is ideal for both the novice breeder and the experienced stud owner

Jane van Lennep

This practical handbook is ideal for both the novice breeder, and the experienced stud owner. Jane van Lennep describes the pleasures and perils of breeding a foal and takes the reader step-by-step through the whole procedure. Beginning with an evaluation of the mare, the choice of a stallion, and a look at what happens at stud, the book continues with advice on how to care for the in-foal mare and a detailed look at the three stages of labour, the common problems and how to deal with them, and the care of the foal for the first few vital hours. Handling, weaning, castration, paddock and stable management are explained in detail, and there is valuable information on the care of youngstock from one to three years plus expert hints on showing the mare and foal.
