Hello, I'm new to this board and this will be my first year breeding. I have done a lot of research through various sources but I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good book which outlines the things to worry about at different stages, from the breeding itself, through to foal care. Just something as a 'keep me on track' resource.

There are several good books out there. I would definitely pick up a breeding management book, but I also like "Blessed are the Broodmares". I will look when I get home to see what other books I have read. Oh and BTW - welcome Marie!

I really like "Complete Foaling Manual" by Theresa Jones. You can order it at www.completefoalingmanual.com You can also ask her questions on that website. I bought the book last fall and read it several times between then and when my mare foaled last week.

Thanks for the suggestions so far! I just looked at the Complete Foaling Manual and I think I'd like something with a bit more on things like broodmare nutrition, etc. as well, instead of just the foaling. But it looks like an excellent book for the foaling process.

Marie ~ Welcome! I also really liked "Blessed are the Broodmares" although some of the information in my version was a bit outdated. Also the author focuses mainly on Thoroughbreds I think in her practice and most of the nutritional information was based on their characteristics. So I had to tweak the feeding recommendations for my very easy keeper QH mare, but most of her information was helpful and I would recommend it to someone new to the breeding world! Just use common sense with any book's information and apply it your horse in her situtation and type and if you have any doubt, ask someone first! (like your vet, your trainer, or someone reputable in the horse business)

heres a link to the book....
