This is the completely updated second edition of the original
published in 1989.
A book for serious horse owners or breeders, this volume is not a light or
easy read. It does, however, cover all systems of the horse, emergency care,
infectious diseases, sex and reproduction, pregnancy and foaling,
pediatrics, geriatrics, feeding and nutrition, and drugs and medications. I
use this encyclopediac volume as a reference much more than I actually sit
and read it. Worth having.
