Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Blessed Are the Brood Mares was published in 1978, no other single source existed that contained such a wide range of information on the care of the breeding mare from mating, through gestation, to foaling and nursing, and on the care of the young horse. Now there is: the second edition of this classic. M. Phyllis Lose, V.M.D., internationally respected for her knowledge and expertise in equine medicine, has revised and updated her book throughout to take into account the improvements and changes that have taken place in equine pediatrics since Brood Mares was first published. Here now is the latest information on drugs, medications and immunizations and an all-new chapter on difficult births (dystocia). Dr. Lose explains the problems that can arise and how you can safely intervene and safeguard the well-being of the mare until the veterinarian arrives. She says that "problems encountered at any time can be solved in almost every case, if the owner or caretaker will learn what to avoid, how to prevent mistakes, and most important, when to summon the veterinarian." Even those with years of experience can still learn from this book, with its seventy-five all-new photographs and drawings. Dr. Lose's language is technical enough not to insult the professional breeder, yet simple enough for the first-time breeder to grasp. She speaks with unmistakable authority but also with compassion for the mare. "Cows and women are tough," she says, "mares are delicate." The dual goals of a successful birth and a well-cared-for mare and foal are more likely to be achieved when you have this extraordinary book giving you all the help you're likely to need.
