Regarded as a standard work since first publication in 1975, The Horse from Conception to Maturity has now been enlarged and extended to include the very latest in veterinary techniques and research relating to the breeding of horses. Peter Rossdale has been assisted in the preparation of this revised edition by experienced stud manager, Melanie Bailey, and this collaboration has resulted in a comprehensive manual which will prove of inestimable value to students and stud personnel, as well as providing valuable professional insight to anyone interested in the care and management of breeding stock. The contents include an examination of the anatomy and function of the reproductive organs, the oestrus cycle, and the general management of the brood mare including necessary veterinary examinations. There are chapters on stallions, their anatomy and physiology, their handling and management, and a full description of mating procedures. Artificial insemination and embryo transfer are covered, as are matters of sub-fertility in mares and stallions. The authors explain the mechanics of conception, the development of the foal in the womb, and the care of the pregnant mare. Foaling and the care of the foal are covered in detail as are foaling problems, abortion, and the method of fostering orphan foals. Sound advice is provided on weaning and worming, and there is a concluding chapter on the mature horse. The book includes both glossary and index and is profusely illustrated with excellent and informative photographs, many in colour, plus line drawings.
