Product description

EFFECTIVE MANAGEMENT requires knowledge, dedication, and a sincere interest in the well-being of horses. In this thoroughly updated second edition of her best-selling classic. Cherry Hill explains how to be a responsible steward of the land while providing horses with the best care possible. Drawing on decades of personal experience and recommendations from Extension agents throughout North America, Hill provides detailed, practical information designed to help readers develop and refine their "horse keeping consciousness." A thorough understanding of horses is critical to good horse keeping, so Hill begins by explaining the behaviour and the physical and emotional needs of the horse. Hill encourages readers to choose a management method that fits their lifestyle and locale, and then explains how to maximize efficiency through careful planning of facilities and implementation of diligent management routines that keep horses happy, healthy, and safe. Well organized and generously illustrated with colour photographs and instructive plan drawings, Horse keeping on a Small Acreage is chock-full of information that horse owners need to know. Acreage selection, layout design, and checklists for daily, weekly, monthly, and seasonal management routines are just a few of the many essential topics covered in this invaluable reference.
