A sound knowledge of horse care is as essential for owners as are riding and training. This manual, which covers everything from housing the animal to holistic healing, is the best horsekeeping teacher available. Packed with wise counsel and instructive photographs, it helps you to recognize when your horse isn’t behaving right or feeling well, understand what excites or scares him, and care for him properly in an emergency. This complete management program teaches all about barn structure and safety, stalls and feeders, fences, protecting pastures, and selecting equipment. You will master what constitutes a healthy equine diet and how to check for parasites, thrush, and other infectious diseases.
