This book was written by a husband and wife team who wanted to share what it is really like to raise your own colt – or actually foal. Colt refers to a male foal and filly is a female, but back in the 1970s it was simply understood that colt meant a young horse no matter the gender. Written by Frank B. and Rubye Mae Griffith in 10 chapters that covers everything from pre-selecting a mare and sire to foaling, training and ultimately showing your colt. The Griffiths owned and trained horses for over 30 years and even had 17 foals of their own in one year! Well written with black and white photographs, published by A.S. Barnes & Co, New York - this a retired/discarded copy that once belonged to the Douglas County Library. Very good condition with no issues, just normal wear and tear on a book of this age, 173 pages, 1970, hardcover.
