Ewing doesn't strike me as a man who's in love with calculators and analytical chemistry. He's a horse lover. He speaks our language and he's a practical man. On matters of equine nutrition, he cuts to the chase....Ewing hands it to you on a silver platter and makes it downright palatable. I particularly liked the chapter on minerals, which, in my opinion, is the biggest black hole in the average horseman's nutritional knowledge.... Buy this book, and read it. --Horse & Rider magazine
This gem of a paperback is a treasure trove of facts about what every horse-keeper needs to know about feeding horses. Years as CEO of an equine feed company gave him the fodder to write this handy little reference book, suitable for greenhorns and weathered trail hands alike -- healthy doses of common sense interspersed with science make it very palatable and easy to digest. --In & Around Horse Country
Practical and easy to understand, this helpful book has a new edition with more information and the latest details on equine nutrition. Supplementation has become an art, and Ewing brings you up-to-date with the latest on glucosamine, fatty acids and many other natural supplements. If your feed room looks like a health food store, this book might help you make better use of some of that inventory. The new edition lives up to my opinion of the original version: 'This fascinating and folksy book takes a very dry subject and makes it interesting. For those not seeking a doctorate in equine nutrition, this book pretty well covers what we need to know.' The book has a tremendous amount information to offer. --Horse Illustrated magazine --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
About the Author
Rex A. Ewing grew up in northeastern Colorado's Platte valley, where he spent most of his time looking after the family's herds of Charolais cattle and Thoroughbred horses. He learned early about the importance of proper feeding since, in addition to the purebred stock, the Ewing Ranch operated an experimental feedlot for horses, cattle and sheep, where his father, John, tested the efficacy of different feeds and additives. Following college, Rex returned to life on the ranch, managing the horse operation and assisting his father in the family's horse nutrition business. When John Ewing died in 1990, Rex became president and CEO of the John Ewing Company, a world-renowned producer of horse nutrition products. Combining his years of common-sense experience with the scientific particulars of horse nutrition, he formulated a number successful products, wrote regularly for horse publications, and talked to thousands of horse owners about their nutrition related problems. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
