Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Ride, October 2007

“Approved by the FFA, this guide will prove invaluable to a young person who is just becoming involved in raising and caring for a horse.”

ANIMAL PEOPLE, animalpeoplenews.org, Oct. 29, 2007

“The utilitarian titles and the Future Farmers of America logo on the covers of How To Raise Chickens, How To Raise Cattle, and How To Raise Horses conceal and camouflage a wealth of indications inside about how profoundly animal advocacy is beginning to influence animal agriculture.”

Tack ‘N Togs Merchandising, April 2007

“An essential resource for newcomers as well as veterans.”
