Cherry Hill's Master Plan
Keeping horses healthy and content is all about establishing good routines and following the cycles of the animals and the land. No one knows this better than Cherry Hill, lifelong horse owner, trainer and horsekeeper, and author of more than 30 books on horses with more than 1 million copies in print. If it involves horses, Hill knows what to do and when to do it. Now, for the first time, Cherry Hill has captured her horsekeeping master plan - daily, monthly, and seasonal routines - between two covers.
Cherry Hill's Horsekeeping Almanac is a goldmine of knowledge. Month by month, Hill touches on every issue likely to affect horses, horse farms and ranches, and those entrusted with horeskeeping. Each month opens with a brief description of what's happening on the farm, followed by personal notes on specific, month-appropriate topics for various climates. For example, the entry for May includes advice on grazing, snakes, composting, bathing and clipping, and fire strips. November focuses on colic, fire ants, winter water, dry shampoo, and outdoor horse clothing. Every chapter includes a timely discussion of wildlife, pest control, reproduction, ranch recipes, and even a Horse Movie of the Month.
In addition, there are recurring reminders, to-do lists, reference charts, climate notes, equine wit and wisdom, a Spanish word of the month, and an "Ask Cherry" section featuring excerpts from her horsekeeping newsletter. In short, it's all the fascinating tidbits, lore, and handed-down insights that make almanacs so fascinating, and tying it all together is Cherry Hill's trusted voice and encyclopedic knowledge of horses.
New or experienced, young or old, Western or English, every horseperson will want to have Horsekeeping Almanac on hand to welcome each new season. Readers will enjoy its uniqueness, browse through it frequently, rely on it for help, and refer to it year after year.
Just as Poor Richard's Almanack occupied a place of honor on every 18th-Century bookshelf, Cherry Hill's Horsekeeping Almanac will be there for every horse enthusiast in the 21st Century.
