Including 174 historical and practical illustrations, this complete guide to horse husbandry, first published in 1914, features every topic of interest to those who own or use horses for practical purposes or pleasure. Published at a time when horses were regarded as an industry, it emphasizes methods to increase equine productivity. This book was initially designed as a primer for the student of agriculture in a less mechanized era, complete with review questions at the end of each chapter. Contemporary readers should enjoy the well-illustrated historical depiction of the horse as machine before the advent of the horseless carriage.
