In this delightful yet highly practical handbook for the novice breeder, experienced stud owner Jane van Lennep describes the pleasures and perils of breeding a foal and takes the reader step-by-step through the whole process.

Beginning with an evaluation of the mare, the choice of a stallion, and a look at what happens at stud, the book continues with advice on how to care of the in-foal mare and a detailed look at the three stages of labour, the common problems and how to deal with them, and the care of the foal for the first few vital hours. Handling, weaning, castrations, paddock and stable management are explained in detail, as is the showing of mare and foal.

Illustrated with superb colour photographs, First Foal will delight anyone who has ever contemplated taking their mare to stud.
