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

Unavailable. No reason given.


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 months of the foal's life. As the cost of buying a horse goes up, and with increased interest in training a young horse, more and more people are considering breeding their own animals. 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 transplant), 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 regard to birth, the authors offer suggestions on creating a foal-friendly environment, learning the signs that indicate an impending birth, detailing both routine and problem deliveries, and the foal's crucial first twenty-four hours.
