The Complete Book of Foaling: An Illustrated Guide for the Foaling Attendant
In Praise of The Complete Book of Foaling
"A must read for anybody who has ever thought about breeding a mare." --Judith Forbis, Ansata Arabian Stud
"Brilliantly written reads like a novel, yet beautifully organized so that you can flip to a section at a moment's notice if your mare is in trouble." --Equus
"This book should be included in every foaling kit. In fact, it should never sit on the bookshelf in the house keep it in the barn where you can always get to it in a hurry!" --Modern Horse Breeding
"Right away the illustrations set this book apart from any other in its class. Dr. Hayes's ability to teach is the other distinction she has a knack for explaining things in such a way that you understand and remember, and the learning process is fun. I couldn't put the book down until I had read it cover to cover." --Walter Schimanski, Masada Arabians
