View: 4446The fourth edition of this popular textbook provides a comprehensive account of how to successfully breed horses. Updated throughout, the new edition will cover techniques such as cloning, intra-cytoplasmic sperm injections (ICSI), in vitro fertilisation (IVF) and related reproductive technology that is currently being developed. This book also looks at reproductive anatomy, endocrine control and selection for breeding mares and stallions, and pregnancy, parturition and lactation in the mare. This classic textbook is required reading for many equine science and related courses, particularly in the UK.

View: 4195This atlas, with about 400 illustrations, is the definitive guide to reproductive problems facing veterinarians in day-to-day practice. The book covers all important domestic large and small animals, e.g. horse, cow, sheep, goat, pig, dog and cat. For each animal included in the book the correct technique for ultrasonography is explained, followed by a look at the ovarian structure. The book shows the development of the foetus and the stages of normal pregnancy in each animal and covers abnormal pregnancy. Also included are gynaecological conditions such as ovarian cysts and endometriosis.

View: 434Equine reproduction has been revolutionized by many aspects of new technology since the 1990s. The advancements in veterinary care and expertise available to breeders are remarkably complex and, in many cases, bewildering. The aim of this book is to explain, in layman's terms, the basic fundamental principles that help form the day-to-day management of a successful breeding operation, regardless of size. This book covers all aspects of routine stud care, from the basics of anatomy and physiology, through to pregnancy and foaling. The emphasis is on the management of the breeding horse throughout the stud year, as well as the care and early preparation of young stock. It also includes sections on aspects of stud work that are often overlooked, such as choosing a suitable broodmare, normal and abnormal breeding behavior, as well as a section on stud design and administration. Equine Stud Management is designed specifically as a first textbook for equine students and prospective horse breeders. As a useful, practical foundation text, this book covers the syllabuses for both NVQ and BHS related examinations. Anyone wishing to learn more about breeding horses and ponies should find this manual a useful introduction to the subject.

View: 7832Many endangered species of wild animals are managed in captivity through studbooks. In this book these data-rich resources are mined in innovative, integrated and statistically tested ways to maximise information gain for conservation practice – whether for captive or released/reintroduced or managed wild populations. This book is thus an important tool for all species managers, and for students and researchers in small population biology and wildlife conservation. The book's studbook analyses are grouped in three interrelated sections: natural history, demography and genetics. Statistical tests to determine the significance of results or to compare results between subgroups are undertaken throughout. Real studbooks of a variety of species, e.g. cranes, wolverines, blesbok, illustrate the practical applications and interpretations of the analyses and statistics. The “natural history” section presents analyses to determine baseline species information such as litter size, inter-birth interval, longevity and seasonality. “Demography” covers census(-style) analyses, age-class based life tables, comparative survival analyses and population projections. Solutions for dealing with small sample sizes are included.Inbreeding depression and unconscious selection form the main focus of the “genetics” section. Survival and life table analyses are used to assess inbreeding effects. Quantitative genetics methods are applied to natural history traits as a tool to monitor genetic variation. A fourth section on “conservation” shows how data from captive populations can be used where natural history data from wild populations are missing. A real example uses studbook data to inform Population Viability Analysis. The final section deals with issues related to incomplete and missing data and statistical topics. The purpose-written open-source software programs “Population Management Library (PML)” and “studbookR” used for analyses in the book, are available at www.princee.com.

His Behaviour, Management and Training
Author: Lesley Skipper
View: 9788STALLIONS ARE perceived by many people, both inside and outside the horse world, as aggressive and difficult to manage, and in some cases downright dangerous. Comparatively few people have the opportunity to observe stallions in anything like natural surroundings; even fewer will have had the opportunity to study how they interact with their family group in the wild or in free-ranging situations, when left to get on with their lives without human interference. So for the most part people in the horse world will find it difficult to separate the true nature of stallions from the preconceived ideas and expectations of people who have only ever experienced stallion behaviour in very restricted circumstances. Not only are there virtually no books dealing with stallions other than from the point of view of stud management, there are also many contradictory opinions and conflicting advice being offered on the many equestrian forums to be found on the internet. Much of the advice given, and many of the opinions offered, are based on assumptions and information that may not necessarily be accurate, and which in many cases add to the distorted views so many people have about stallions.This book encourages people to view stallions in a more sympathetic light, and to understand that a stallion is still a horse, and has much the same needs and priorities as any other horse, albeit with a few 'extras' which need to be taken into account in training and management. It demonstrates that for the most part it is the prevalent management practices which create problems in managing and handling stallions, rather than the inherent nature of stallions themselves. The book shows how stallions behave when allowed to live as naturally as a domestic situaA--tion permits, and to perform as many of their natural behaviours as possible within the constraints of domesticaA--tion. It gives practical advice on the training and management of stallions, as well as much valuable information on what to do when problems arise. It will be invaluable for anyone involved with horses, but especially those wanting to understand more about the true nature of stallions, and how to keep them as naturally as possible.
