It covers foal growth and how to predict the mature height of a foal, dental issues and tooth eruption, how to identify surface muscles and tendons as well as prominent parts of the skeleton. Clear, concise text accompanies exercises and follow-up activities, plus there are quizzes and self-tests to build your skill.
