Breeding the competition horse

Blackwell publishing
This is a practical guide for all those who want to produce a competition horse, whether they are professional stud managers or owners aiming to breed the best possible foal from their mare. Full of practical information, this book provides a step-by-step guide to breeding a foal, including what to do before sending a mare to stud, what actually happens to the mare while at stud, how to care for the in-foal mare, foaling, care of the new-born foal and weaning. The increasingly common techniques of embryo transfer and artificial insemination are explained and discussed. Chapters of particular interest in this updated edition discuss how to select the right mare and stallion, looking at conformation, breeds forvarious disciplines, action and temperament and other factors which must be considered if the breeder is to enhance his or her chances of breeding correct stock. A new chapter also examines young stock production and management, including housing, feeding, marketing and production for sale.
