An intimate view into the true nature of horses. This gorgeous book presents the noble and powerful horse in spellbinding photographs, revealing text, and extended captions. Sabine Stuewer has been observing horses for years - when they are alone and in groups. Her images are an indulgent visual treat, revealing the pure beauty of horses and their connection to their environment and their companions. Emmanuelle Brengard interprets the horses' behaviours - one minute calmly grazing, in a frenzied gallop the next, grooming each other, nuzzling a foal, battling for a mate - giving horse lovers a better understanding of the animal. The book's sections are: In the Harem - the harem family of about 10 (a stallion and his mares and foals), social order; The Stallion - charisma, postures, fights between males, reproduction; Mares and Foals - birth, educating the foals, foal games; The Nuances of Friendship - hierarchy, games among adults; The Partnerships - mares and foals, resting and sleep, adults protecting the herd and grooming; Gallop to Freedom - photo gallery; Finely Honed Senses - smell, sight, taste, hearing, communication, the gaits; Fits of Madness - jumps and leaps to release stress and energy, and to stretch. Those who ride horses will tell you that they are complex animals possessing a wide range of behaviours. It can take years of watching and being with horses to truly understand them. The Horse brings a closer view to their world in a new way, one that is possible only with the authors' decades of experience observing, photographing and interacting with the charismatic horse. Already remarkable value as a hardback, this paperback is now even more outstanding. It is an exceptional and personally meaningful selection for equestrians, breeders, casual riders, artists and photographers, and all who love horses for their character and beauty. All will derive great pleasure from this jewel.

p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Helvetica} In the United States alone, it is estimated that almost 150,000 horses per year are unwanted. This number grows exponentially when you consider horses worldwide. What is 'unwanted'? The term is used to refer to horses that are old, injured, sick, unmanageable, or fail to meet expectations. The horse may have a lameness or illness...or he could just be the wrong colour or gender. His problem could be life-threatening...or chronic and manageable. He may have a mild behavioural problem... or a severe one. The good news is, today, more and more individuals are choosing to give an unwanted horse a second chance. Whether through purchase, adoption, or rescue, the horse in the 'wrong' situation has a chance to find his way to the 'right one'. Dr. Stacie Boswell's goal is to restore health and comfort to every horse in transition, and to help him learn how to function as the horse he is expected to be - from the Thoroughbred off the track to the grade pony from the field down the road. She has compiled hundreds of case studies highlighting the areas of concern in the horse 'in need', and in these pages details proactive methods of handling common medical problems and health issues, from nutrition and dentistry to deworming and hoofcare to traumatic injury and emergency rescue scenarios. Dr. Boswell then explains the ways that, as a new horse is rehabilitated physically, specific training techniques can help him adapt to the positive changes in his care and environment.

This book briefly reviews the history of equine embryo transfer, covering in clinically practical terms the techniques, equipment, and management protocols currently in use. Embryo transfer has become a big business, especially for breeding racing stock (horses and camels), and is therefore a very important aspect of equine practice. Ed Squires and Pat McCue have been involved with the development of embryo collection and transfer procedures since the early 60s and have both contributed important techniques and innovations to the process through their research and clinical experience. This book captures the clinical experience, so far, and applies it directly to equine practice. The book is of great value to general equine practitioners for reference, equine reproduction specialists, animal science at the graduate level (equine track), and breeders.
