Expert advice and practical information on horse breeding for all mare owners. In this completely revised and updated reference, author Peter Rossdale explains in simple language the biological functions upon which horse reproduction is based, giving enough background to enable those working in stables and stud farms to cope with any problems that may arise. He never overwhelm readers with excessive detail and avoids being doctrinaire, arguing that there are many ways to the same end and that it is the duty of the vet to explain a breeder's options. His purpose throughout is to clarify and be a source of reference, advocating that the person on the spot should be in a position to make decisions based on background knowledge as well as experience - knowledge breeders will find inside this book.
