Model Number: 9780851314532
Revised edition published in 1989.
‘The most brilliant performers that I have bought have never thrilled me half as much as those I have bred. That is why, for years, I have learned and loved the fascination of breeding; its difficulties and its delights; the always entrancing charm of new life.’
So wrote Henry Wynmalen who imparts the experience of a lifetime of successful breeding in this classic work, setting out in meticulous detail all the factors that make for sound and prosperous stud management.
There are, among others, chapters on the use of land and feeding crops, on stud-farm layout and buildings, on breeding and breeds in general, and on mares, stallions, foaling, youngstock and feeding. Seventy-five photographs, many of them new, complement the text.
Ann Leighton Hardman, herself an experienced and successful breeder, has revised the text for this new edition, adding detailed descriptions of modern methods and theories including disease conditions and prevention, feeding, hygiene, and the use of the ultrasound scanner for pregnancy diagnosis.
