Excerpt from The Horseowner and Stableman's Companion: Or, Hints on the Selection, Purchase and General Management of the Horse
That which we may denominate success in the proper maintenance of our working horses, is derived from careful management. This applies with equal force to all our domestic animals.
To preserve their health and vigour throughout long years of usefulness, a knowledge of their habits, capabilities, and peculiarities, &c., is required. He who possesses this is well armed, but lie would be more perfect in having the ability and disposition to apply it directly towards the mitigation of evil consequences which, alas, swell up the mortality lists to a fearful degree. It should, in all cases, be the end and object of the attention bestowed upon them.
Great misconception prevails upon this point. Disease and death continually occur among our valuable animals, and owners have almost accepted the results as inevitable, from which there is no escape.
