Great beginner's book! Helps with deciding on a horse, the correct conformation of a horse, feeding guidelines, grooming, pasturing your horse, and stabling your horse.
Also covers your horses health, finding a veterinarian, first aid kits, wound care, teeth, worming, common ailments, and lameness.
Talks about the foot and shoeing, trimming,and finding a good farrier.
A very good basic book, that covers a lot of areas you may have questions about. Has a pretty good glossary of horse terms. Enjoy!
