The Care and Management of Native Ponies: An Owner's Manual (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


This is the most comprehensive book ever published on the complete care and management of the native pony. The different breeds are evaluated, their special characteristics discussed and help is given on the choice of breed to suit individual requirements. Jenny Morgan writes about grazing, stabling and field shelters and keeping ponies hardy and healthy in adverse weather conditions. Field management is discussed with plenty of advice on paddock maintenance and fencing. Feeding is covered in depth with information on hard feeds, supplements, herbs, vitamins and minerals as well as the special requirements for maintaining condition in winter and for showing. In the section on keeping native ponies healthy, feet and shoeing are covered and there is the latest veterinary advice on laminitis and the other common 'native' problems such as sweet itch. With advice on grooming and coat care everything you need to know to keep your pony in first-class condition is in this book. For owners who want to show their pony, there is a chapter on the different classes plus information on show preparation, travelling and show day hints and tips.

There is also a section on breeding and the books ends with advice on the special care and requirements of older ponies. Profusely illustrated with colour photographs and written by an owner with thirty years' experience, "The Care and Management of Native Ponies" is the essential guide for everyone who owns one of these much-loved animals.
