Horses are completely dependant on humans for their day-to-day care and safety. For that reason, all horse persons have a responsibility to learn basic horse care. In this volume, the multi-faceted nature of basic care is explained, with thousands of tips for keeping your horse happy, healthy and sound. Understanding Basic Horse Care opens with chapters on handling, grooming, housing and feeding horses. The second part of the book discusses the major body systems, common ailments and treatment options. The basic husbandry sections focus on the day-to-day aspects of caring for horses, and the anatomy and physiology sections are intended to provide a better understanding of the horse as a living, breathing entity.
Dr. Michael A. Ball, a member of the Cornell University faculty, is also the author of Understanding Equine First Aid and Understanding the Equine Eye, from The Horse Health Care Library.
