Listing Detail Tabs


The prospect of putting your mare in foal may seem attractive; in fact the whole exercise is fraught with potential problems. Perhaps you have a mare, but no time to ride her; would it be sensible to breed from her? How do you find a suitable stallion? Do you understand how AI works? Should you ride your in-foal mare, and how whould you feed her? How do you cope with a newborn foal, and what about weaning and foal care?

The answers to these, and countless other questions are given in this comprehensive guide. This practical step-by-step book, now updated, takes the owner through every stage of the process in detail. Case studies of common foal ailments are given, and veterinary terminology is deliberately kept simple so that the mare owner is left in no doubt of how to provide mare and foal with the best possible care.
