More techical than I expected
on June 1, 2009
Storey's Guide to Feeding Horses was much more technical and scientific than I wanted or needed,although she does give some very good info, but the beginning of the book is really written for people aspiring to be professional equine nutrition specialists or scientists, NOT the average horse person just seeking basic info on feeding horses. Next time I will think twice before purchasing a book written by a Ph.D, as they don't write for the rest of us--they write to show off all their education and technical knowledge. I'm no dummy, but I can do without the highly scientific info. Just tell me that a horse's digestive system cannot handle this or that, and that's all I need to know--I don't need to know all the details of how and why. But if you are an equine vet or aspiring horse nutrition specialist, by all means, get this book. Perhaps the rest of the book is written in a more straighforward, non-technical way.
