Managing Your Mare and Handling a Stallion

Our first reaction to this book was "What a clever title!" But the more you think about horse breeding, the more you realize this clever phrase gets straight to the point. The foal is the goal!

This book is a thorough, easy-to-read guide for anyone new to - or considering - the business of breeding. Although you'll find within its pages the typical step-by-step birthing scenes and reproductive system line drawings, it's focused on the questions critical to successful breeding, such as:

- How do I decide which stallion to breed to or whether to breed my mare at all?
- What kinds of paperwork and legal issues will I encounter?
- How does this whole breeding process work? What about artificial insemination?
- Should I stand a stallion of my own? How much work and time is involved?

The Foal is the Goal is separated into two sections: one for mare issues and one for stallion issues. The author's considerable breeding knowledge shines as each situation is peppered with her experiences and recommendations.

This won't be the only book you acquire as a breeder, but it definitely should be the first.
