Alec Nathan Wildenstein (August 5, 1940 – February 18, 2008) was an American billionaire businessman, art dealer, racehorse owner, and breeder. Born in Marseille, Wildenstein was raised in New York City where his family owned and operated an art gallery. In 1875, his great-grandfather founded a business dealing in art. His father, Daniel Wildenstein, was a distinguished scholar of impressionism whose career and dominant personality overshadowed his son's achievements.

This book does an excellent job of explaining maladies and situations that are unique to the ownership of draft horses. The authors discuss the fact that draft horses have different digestion than light horses. There are hoof problems, muscular problems, and nutrient storage issues here that are unheard of among light horses as well. It was an eye-opener to read how many differences there are between these creatures and their lighter cousins. I wholeheartedly recommend this book for any prospective or present draft horse owner. There are many issues here that could be vital to your horse's health.

As for other things... do not expect this book to overly extol the draft horse's positive values. It does briefly mention them, but in a more clinical, objective sense rather than warm praise. This is indeed an 'owner's manual', reminding me for the most part of an instructional book on a new lawnmower, except extremely well-written, easy to understand, and simple to apply. It is filled with good information.

It seems that, if you are interested in such a book, you are already interested in the beautiful and enchanting draft horse. Therefore, you don't need any inducement to love them. Once again, I completely recommend this book. There is much to think about. Enjoy.

This was a wonderful reference. I'm experienced with lighter breeds but only somewhat familiar with the specific maladies that can affect drafts (such as Shivers) which is why I bought this book. It was a great tool- I've already been loaning it out as a matter of fact! By NO MEANS is this an extensive study, but for a broad overview (with some specifics) it was perfect! I'm impressed by the way that the authors offered up some common habits that they weren't familiar with personally (which they specified) as alternative options to the way they work. This was a perfect starting point for me before I delve into the heavy horse world. Obviously, a book that is 231 pages isn't expected to be an all-inclusive compendium.

Another reviewer stated that this was a poor reference because it didn't mention certain specifics- such as the length of time in between shoeing/trimming hooves and floating teeth. Indeed, this book specifically discusses those timelines (6-8 wks for trim- pg 48, once a year for floating- pg 79) as well as pointing out that you're best bet is to consult an expert in the field who has experience with heavy horses. In addition, the authors even warn that it can often be difficult to find experts (vets, farriers, etc) who are experienced much less willing to work with heavy horses.

This really is THE Owner's Manual for draft horses! I've had 2 of them and this book has been invaluable over the years. They are definitely a different kind of horse, it's like having a small elephant in your backyard and I believe this book helps to prepare you for this. I have since given this book another family to learn from, but should I choose to have another draft horse, I WILL buy another copy.
Side note: Dr. Valentine is a brilliant, caring, wonderful woman and was very open to consulting with me about my EPSM positive Percheron gelding. Her expert advice allowed me more time to spend with him before he passed. If you need her advice on EPSM and are able, setting up a consult with her could make all of the difference for your horse. :)

This book probably saved my horse's life or at the very least her long-term health. Five months ago I acquired a Belgian mare that had recently been rescued from a local auction kill pen. I didn't know anything about drafts, but I thought she looked a little funny, like she was missing weight in strange places. I started doing some research including reading this book and found the answer: she has EPSM. Put her on a locally produced feed that is specially formulated with Dr. Valentine's direction and she's a new horse. This book has some great insight worth considering if you want to know more about drafts. I strongly recommend it.

Nice book
  • Fararala
It is a must-have book for all draft and big-muscled horses. It is packed full of information from A to Z and written in an easy-to-read manner. Now I now so much more about big horses' health and health issues - it's a must in a draft horse owner's library.

Good introduction to the draft breeds.
This book contains very current information on draft horse health issues. It is written by a veterinarian and covers basic care, feeding, housing and health of draft horses. It does not cover breeds, conformation, temperament or training. All in all, this is a very good basic horse care book.
