From the Inside Flap
The Complete Book of Foaling not only teaches how to troubleshoot problems but also explains why a problem has occurred and what must be done to correct it. Dr. Hayes knows that the foaling process can be scary and exciting at the same time. She wants to make it the exhilarating and positive experience it is meant to be by contributing not just her expertise but that of "the silent and patient teachings of the mares and foals" she attended. "The horses are the real authors," she says. "I am privileged to be their interpreter."
From the Back Cover
""A must read for anybody who has ever thought about breeding a mare."" --Judith Forbis, Ansata Arabian Stud
""Brilliantly written?reads like a novel, yet beautifully organized so that you can flip to a section at a moment's notice if your mare is in trouble."" --""Equus""
""This book should be included in every foaling kit. In fact, it should never sit on the bookshelf in the house?keep it in the barn where you can always get to it in a hurry!"" --""Modern Horse Breeding""
""Right away the illustrations set this book apart from any other in its class. Dr. Hayes's ability to teach is the other distinction?she has a knack for explaining things in such a way that you understand and remember, and the learning process is fun. I couldn't put the book down until I had read it cover to cover."" --Walter Schimanski, Masada Arabians
