Proper formulation of diets for horses depends on adequate knowledge of their nutrient requirements. These requirements depend on the breed and age of the horse and whether it is exercising, pregnant, or lactating. A great deal of new information has been accumulated since the publication 17 years ago of the last edition of Nutrient Requirements of Horses. This new edition features a detailed review of scientific literature, summarizing all the latest information, and provides a new set of requirements based on revised data. Also included is updated information on the composition of feeds, feed additives, and other compounds routinely fed to horses. The effects of physiological factors, such as exercise, and environmental factors, such as temperature and humidity, are covered, as well. Nutrient Requirements of Horses also contains information on several nutritional and metabolic diseases that horses often have. Designed primarily as a reference, both practical and technical, Nutrient Requirements of Horses is intended to ensure that the diets of horses and other equids contain adequate amounts of nutrients and that the intakes of certain nutrients are not so excessive that they inhibit performance or impair health. This book is primarily intended for animal nutritionists, veterinarians, and other scientists; however, individual horse owners and managers will also find some of this material useful. Professors who teach graduate courses in animal nutrition will find Nutrient Requirements of Horses beneficial as a textbook.

Equine Behavior: A guide for Veterinarians and Equine Scientists is the quintessential reference for all who really want to know what makes horses tick. Research in horse behavior has made great strides in recent years. This book examines the truth behind modern trends and ancient traditions. Full of insight, it rounds up the latest findings of practitioners and researchers from all over the world, drawing on both cutting-edge research and best practice. With more than 1,000 references, the book explores equine behavior from first principles, by considering the behavior of free-ranging horses and focusing on ways in which management and training influence the responses of their domestic counterparts. Equine physicians, trainers, handlers and owners all need to be students of equine behavior, because the first sign of a problem is often a change in behavior. So, whether you own, ride, lead, groom, feed or heal horses, what you observe is vital to your understanding. Behavioral problems in the stable and under saddle are a grave concern for equine veterinarians worldwide, because they can lead to poor performance, welfare issues, abuse and, ultimately, wastage. Traditionally, veterinarians gave priority to the physical health of their equine patients. This book is a unique attempt to demonstrate the way science can throw light on how and why problems and unwelcome behaviors arise. It also offers ways to bring about change for the better. Beautifully illustrated with more than 500 photographs and line diagrams, Equine Behavior: A guide for veterinarians and equine scientists is an essential resource for practising veterinarians, students and enthusiasts with a specific interest in horses, ponies, and donkeys. Professional trainers and handlers, equine scientists and behavior therapists will also find its contents invaluable. Paul McGreevy is Senior Lecturer in Animal Behavior at the University of Sydney's Faculty of Veterinary Science Features a practical, hands-on approach to all aspects of equine behavior Discusses all factors that effect equine behavior Contrasts normal behavior with abnormal behavior Reviews all behavioral problems Lists and reviews the latest drug therapies Addresses difficult-to-treat clinical problems such as head-shaking, with insights from the leading researcher in this area Provides a brief clinical evaluation of 'horse-whispering' Illustrates the key behavioral differences between horses and donkeys
With her landmark first book Horse Speak: The Equine-Human Translation Guide, trainer Sharon Wilsie upended conventional methods of human equine communication (using words and ropes, for example) with her clear classification of the language horses use with each other (body, breath, and intent), as well as an unparalleled explanation of how we as humans can effectively mirror it. Learning to "listen" and "talk" to horses in their language, instead of expecting them to comprehend ours, is a milestone in the progressive philosophy of horsemanship, helping find positive solutions to behavior and training problems and ultimately leading to fewer misunderstandings between horses and humans. In her much anticipated follow up, Wilsie uses true stories to relate examples of "problems" and how they were solved using Horse Speak. Her engaging narrative introduces readers to dozens of real life scenarios from different barns, various disciplines, and riders and handlers with contrasting experiences and backgrounds. Wilsie highlights her Horse Speak process, the clues that point to the best course of action, and the steps she takes to connect with horses that have shut down, grown confused, or become sulky or aggressive for any number of reasons. The result is a book full of incredible insight and exciting possibilities.

An eastern European father, a Yorkshire childhood, 6th form at a boy's school, events officer for Young Farmers, student physiotherapist at Manchester Royal Infirmary during the Yorkshire Ripper years, intrepid pioneer of sidesaddle hunting, commander-in-chief to a notorious political husband - these are just some of the themes that make this new book so compelling. But what really makes this story so remarkable is the author herself, and the focus and determination with which she drew on her experiences to influence her unique and transformative career as one of the county's leading equine physiotherapy specialists. Mirroring the way Katie and her husband tackle life, this book challenges the `rules' to create something refreshingly new. Instead of taking the easy option of writing a book about the evolution of modern equine physiotherapy, Katie has found a bewitching way to envelop it within her own story - her autobiography - as an irresistible means for growing wider interest in this fascinating topic. So, Katie's readers will typically come from two camps - lovers of biography who will relish the page-turning way that she relates her escapades and life-forming experiences; and equestrians (professional and amateur alike) who will eagerly absorb every detail and colour as she describes her experience of breeding, showing, training, hunting and, of course, healing horses. Thus, whilst this is a `horsey' book, the ultimate test will be the number of readers from the biography camp who thoroughly enjoy their dip into the equine world with Katie as guide. And in this book that is a given. The book is so well thought out that by the time the horse novice reaches the treatment descriptions, they will feel that they have known horses all their life. There is a serious vein in the book too. As an expert in her field, Katie has seen the very best and the very worst of equine care. And being a true Yorkshire lass, she calls a spade a spade and may shock some people with some of her astute observations. The hope is that this will also inspire a more responsible and realistic approach to horse ownership and particularly to equine health and injuries. With some beautiful real-life equine photography and a never-before shared insight to a rare but invaluable mode of treatment, all explained in professional but accessible language, this book is a fantastic read for horse lovers and newbies alike. And as with all of the best biographies, by the end you will feel you have known Katie all of your life - and will celebrate that too!
