Inside This Book (Learn More)
First Sentence
Some 60 million years ago in the Eocene period there appeared a small, fox-sized, four-toed quadruped, which was a restricted nomad but not particularly gregarious, and which is now recognised by fossil remains as the first or 'Dawn' horse, and given the generic name Hyracotherium (in Europe) and Eohippus (in America). Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars A book worth buying 28 Aug 2005
By A Customer
A title that should be on the shelf of any horse owner/rider or carer. Very much a high level book with a lot of in depth coverage though perhaps written with a more involved readership in, veterinary students. Nicely divided up for reference purposes but the illustrations, although very good, do not make a good substitute for photographs, albeit understood that photos cannot be provided for all situations described within the book. It's a book worth reading a bit at a time and the information digested, and surprising amounts can be learned from studying this work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful if studying towards examinations! 2 Jan 2002
By A Customer
This book is detailed enough for those studying towards examinations but is still suitable for the general equine owner who wishes to know more!! Everything is explained in extreme detail and has loads of diagrams to help explain. An amazing book that's well worth buying. Great value for money and i believe it is the best of it's kind.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Veterinary Manual with 99.9% of the answers! 5 Dec 2003
By A Customer
Until now "Veterinary Notes for Horse Owners" by Horace Hayes was the definitive equine veterinary guide. The BHS Veterinary Manual has, I think, knocked the former of its pedestal! Not only is the format clear and helpful to any prospective owner or horse carer, it deals with ailments most thoroughly. There are also some significant chapters on poisons and toxicology and it makes you wonder just how many poisonous plants there are lurking around to threaten your horse. A weighty tome so don't take it on holiday but read a bit each night in bed and always keep it handy.

3.0 out of 5 stars What was the editor thinking..... 15 Aug 2007
By Macmac
This book may be a mine of information, but it is very hard to read due to overuse and wrong use of bullet points, which unnecessarily break up sentences and distract the eye - in places it looks like someone's lecture notes. It could also do with more illustrative pictures and photographs, and clearer headings. The author also explains why he wants to use the word dis-ease rather than disease, but the use of dis-ease makes the text look old-fashioned.
There are also some glaring omissions - being the owner of an elderly pony I was interested in reading about Cushings, but there was practically nothing about it in the book which I found surprising.
So for me as an "average" horse owner, I'm disappointed in this book and am now looking for another equine veterinary book to supplement this one, something I thought I wouldn't have to do because I was expecting this one to be my "bible".
