Even tho I gave it an excellent book I must qualify that with the fact that I no experience whatsoever with keeping any animal other than a cat or a dog on a subdivision lot. However, the book is very well organized and very specific. It explains in detail what it means to own an animal like a horse and even explains how to keep financial records which is not something I had even contemplated. Also there are legal ramifications that I had no knowledge of at the onset of my study until reading this book. This is not all, the book not only explains what type of site for keeping your horse is going to work for you personally and ideally for your horse. I thoroughly enjoyed all the color photos of housing, land, horses and examples of working farms already established and example blueprints for your own to design and build. The book gave examples of equipment necessary for keeping, caring for and transporting your horse. Much detail was put into the land management for your... Read more
Ok, I'll admit that dispite living in Kentucky's famed bluegrass country, I know next to nothing about horses. Fortunately, I didn't need too since this book was purchased for my niece, who is majoring in Animal and Human Therapy in college. She had previewed this and dozens of other related books; looking for a through and easily understandable "how to" book. Specifically, she wanted something that she could take anywhere and would transfer what she read into workable gameplan. This book, she said, fit the bill to a tee.

When the book arrived, I couldn't help but rummage through it. I was impressed with the easy to understand material, complete with detailed diagrams and excellent color photos. This is a terrific book for the novice all the way up to the professional. A strong recommendation for anyone interested in keeping horses on a small budget and small acreage.
A really satisfying book to have in your hands; glossy, thick, quality, heavy. Everything I was expecting and probably more. I have recently leased eight acres of land to graze my two horses on, and I am learning as I go at how to best manage that land. I am considering it practice as we save up for our own 3-5 acre property. With that in mind, I purchased this book to get advice from someone experienced with managing smaller properties.

The content within this book is better than I imagined. It has everything from budget templates, sample costing, barn diagrams and layouts, beautiful huge colour pictures with captions and descriptions, easy to read text written in a way that anyone can understand. My personal favorites are the sample land layouts; they provide a before and after diagram of what a property looks like (for example eight acres with just a house and garage on it), and then it proposes the changes to best suit that property (where paddocks could be fenced,...
