For many years Diana Tuke has been helping horse owners with their feeding problems. In this book, she sets out, in language that the laymen can understand, the types and values of the various feedstuffs available and the principles behind sound feeding.
There are chapters on the different categories of food (Protein, High Energy, Bulk), and on the vital additions that make up a complete diet (Vitamins, Minerals).
As in all her books Diana Tuke investigates her subject in depth and explains it with great clarity. Several tables provide important data and expand on the text, while the clear and practically photographs illustrate the types of feed both in the raw and prepared states, as well as methods of dispensing them. This clear but detailed study is recommended to amateur and professional, forage merchant and groom, in short, to anyone who deals with and cares for horses.
