With the aid of two expert consultants -- equine veterinary surgeon Janet Eley and Barrie Hosie, stud groom to the Duke of Roxburgh -- Susan McBane has written a book for novice breeders who are fairly experienced with horses and ponies.

"Modern Horse Breeding" is unique in that it is presented in two parts. Part 1, Veterinary Considerations, includes chapters on such topics as why you need a vet; reproductive function in mare and stallion, genetics and hereditary; pregnancy; before, during, and after foaling; nutritional requirements of mare, foal, and young stock; plus diseases and abnormalities. Part 2, Practical Aspects, deals with right and wrong reasons for breeding a horse, financial matters, the foundation stock, sending the mare to stud, and care of the pregnant mare.

Easy-to-read, reliable, and up-to-date, "Modern Horse Breeding" includes warnings about when to call in expert help, points out the sign of impending problems, and details the foaling process starting a month beforehand.
