Publisher's Description

In forty years as a country veterinarian, John J. Mettler has seen just about everything that can happen to horses and horse people – from the first-time buyer purchasing the wrong mount to the experienced owner coping with an acute case of colic.  Here Dr. Mettler shares that experience with invaluable advice on preventive health care, breeding, foaling, putting a horse down when necessary, and more.  Throughout, his love and respect for horses shines through.
