display_descriptionThoroughly revised and updated, a comprehensive guide to equine care describes all aspects of facilities design, including acreage selection and barn construction, offers practical procedures for meeting the ongoing needs of the horse, and includes new sections on environmentally responsible horse care, horse insurance and full-color photos and artwork. 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 hands on extension agents throughout North America, Hill provides detailed, practical information designed to help readers develop and refine their housekeeping consciousness. A thorough understanding of horses is critical to good housekeeping, so Hill begins by explaining the behavior and the physical and emotional needs of the horse. She encourages readers to choose a management method that fits their lifestyle and locale. She 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 color photographs and instructive plan drawings, Horsekeeping on a Small Acreage is packed with information that horse owners need. Acreage selection, layout design, and checklists for daily, weekly, monthly, and seasonal management routines are just a few of the essential topics covered in this invaluable reference. Since it was first published in 1991, Horsekeeping on a Small Acreage has sold more than 160,000 copies. This new edition is full color and has been thoroughly redesigned, revised, expanded, and updated.
