Overview

In Praise of ?"The Complete Book of Foaling"

"A must read for anybody who has ever thought about breeding a mare." —Judith Forbis, Ansata Arabian Stud

"Brilliantly written-reads like a novel, yet beautifully organized so that you can flip to a section at a moment's notice if your mare is in trouble." —"Equus"

"This book should be included in every foaling kit. In fact, it should never sit on the bookshelf in the house-keep it in the barn where you can always get to it in a hurry!" —"Modern Horse Breeding"

"Right away the illustrations set this book apart from any other in its class. Dr. Hayes's ability to teach is the other distinction-she has a knack for explaining things in such a way that you understand and remember, and the learning process is fun. I couldn't put the book down until I had read it cover to cover." —Walter Schimanski, Masada Arabians
