Each item - in alphabetical order - describes the origin, the medicinal properties and how to use them. Such as, Oregano can be used in a warm poultice to soothe over-exertion.

Foals and Young Horses; Horse Riding & Management Series

Foals and Young Horses is one of the Horse Riding & Management Series developed by 5m Publishing.

This is a lovely resource for someone interested in breeding and raising a foal. From pregnancy to foaling to ground training, this book is full of detailed photos and exercises to practice with the young horse to prepare it for its eventual purpose.

Since it was written by non-American authors, certain words may sound foreign. Such as "head collar" which we in the U.S. call a halter.
