Overview

Whether you are a veterinarian consulting on how to maintain the integrity of the grain and water in the horse'e newly-built stall; or the agricultural engineer who has been asked to design a new state-of-the-art equine shelter; or an animal scientist or horse owner who simply wants the latest, safest, and most up-to-date information on manure management - this book will fulfill your needs!

This handy, user-friendly guide answers some of the toughest questions about equine shelters. Covering everything from preferred building materials such as lighting to flooring in the horse's primary shelter to design and management of a riding arena, this practical reference will guide the reader every step of the way.

This practical reference is filled with clear, user-friendly design illustrations and information on ventilation, manure management, fence planning, fire safety, feed storage, bedding requirements, dust control systems, and a myriad of detailed information designed for the comfort, safety, and health of your horse in areas where cold weather is a factor.
