No horse farmer wants to think about sick or hurt animals, but such situations do occur at some point on every farm. When a horse isn't well, the reference every owner will turn to first is "Storey's Barn Guide to Horse Health Care and First Aid". With a nail-hole at the top of each page spread, the book can hang on a barn wall as a hands-free visual guide to every health situation likely to occur. Graphic step-by-step presentations guide farmers through daily health checks, basic dental and hoof care, preventive procedures, emergency first aid care, and wound treatment. The book also features full-colour anatomical illustrations, feeding and nutritional charts, a record-keeping section, and a checklist of first-aid supplies. The Emergency and Wounds sections both begin with careful instructions on when to call the veterinarian and what to do until professional help arrives. Always available to guide horse farmers through basic equine health procedures, this "Barn Guide" will be a handy reference and an invaluable practical resource on every horse farm.
