an intelligent and useful book that has something to offer almost every horse owner.” – The Quarter Horse Journal

“This book is highly suited for the family getting a first horse, and for those who are buying a farm to live with their horse after boarding out for too many years.” – The Quarter Horse Journal

“…a wealth of information for first-time horse owners as well as for more experienced horseman. In fact, about the only thing Hill hasn’t done is choose a horse for the reader.” – Paint Horse Journal

“A thorough overview of the requirements of horses and the responsibilities of the horse owner, Horsekeeping on a Small Acreage, will provide all horsemen with valuable information regardless the size of their operation.” – Paint Horse Journal

“This useful book anticipates and heads off many of the problems which will confront the new horse owner.” – Driving Digest Magazine

“Through experience and research, Cherry Hill has compiled a wealth of practical information to help others get the most from their horse setups.” – Appaloosa Journal

“…land is expensive and…horse owners must find ways to get more from less. That’s what Horsekeeping on a Small Acreage is all about.” – Appaloosa Journal

Library Journal
A comprehensive, practical discussion of all aspects of equine ownership, Hill's book is honest about the hard work and planning necessary for responsible horse care. The author assesses the horse's needs with regard to food, water, pasture, shelter, exercise, and medical care. There are suggestions for barn and pasture design, as well as a list of resources for further information. Cost estimates are realistic, but may vary in different locales. The information is presented in great detail, and readers who find the details cumbersome probably should not consider owning horses! Recommended for public and academic libraries maintaining equine collections.-- Deborah Emerson, Monroe Community Coll. Lib., Rochester, N.Y.

    Information wrapped in wonderful descriptions

    I have forgotten over the years a few of the things someone new to horse management needs to know - this books forgets nothing and tells all in easy to read format. A great book for everyone whether new to horses or an old hand at them. I recommend it highly.

    You'll Never Believe All of the Details...

    that you've forgotten about when planning your very own farm. This book has it all--from feeding to tractor type and selection. It details how to do it all, in an easy to understand way. It also includes several worksheets that you can copy and submit to contractors to bid on building your barn.
