Breed for Success: The Horseman's Guide to Producing Healthy Foals

Breed for Success: The Horseman's Guide to Producing Healthy Foals Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As the cost of buying a horse goes up and as interest in training a young horse increases, more and more people are considering breeding their own animals. Doing so can be an ongoing and daunting challenge, but here to guide the novice breeder through every step of the way is Breed for Success.

Beginning with initial decisions, including whether your mare is suitable breeding stock, the authors address pre-breeding mare care, breeding methods (live cover versus artificial insemination or embryo transfer), stallion selection, and negotiating the breeding contract.

Chapters on pregnancy cover broodmare care throughout the gestation period with an emphasis on recognizing early trouble signs and ways to improve the chances of a healthy mare and foal. With regards to birth, the authors offer suggestions on how to create a foal-friendly environment, learn the signs that indicate an impending birth, cope with both routine and problem deliveries, and then manage the foal's crucial first twenty-four hours.

Written with clarity and authority and full of "true life" anecdotes from breeders and other experts, Breed for Success is the one book to consult when your thoughts turn toward breeding your mare.

Synopsis:

A step by step guide to breeding your mare, caring for her during pregnancy, and looking after her and her foal during the first few hours of the foal's life.
