Every horse breeder's goal is for his or her mare to give birth to a healthy and thriving foal. But to achieve that happy result, much care and attention must go toward proper management of the mare and stallion, and, once it has arrived, the foal. Breeder's Guide to Mare, Foal, and Stallion Care can help horse breeders, especially those new to breeding horses, sift through the myriad details and focus on what's most important to the health and well-being of their animals. Written by equine veterinarians who are tops in their areas of expertise, this comprehensive guide covers topics ranging from a mare's reproductive cycle to problem pregnancies to the latest trends in good stallion management to common foal problems and diseases.
