Your Horse’s Skin, by Hilary Pooley
The ultimate “skinny” on what holds us all together – “what it is, what it does and how to maintain it in perfect condition.” Anyone who has had horses has had some issues with skin: warts, scratches, melanomas, rain rot, wounds, insect bites – and the list goes on. This is a whole book on the topic, and it belongs in every horseman’s library. Chapters include function & structure, healthy vs. unhealthy skin, examination, maintenance, and nutrition of skin, protective equipment, conditions and diseases, hygiene, and alternative therapies.
