This text is divided into three main sections: the mare, the stallion, and the neonate. Each is equally important to veterinarians involved in equine reproductive practice. Too often, interest in the mare wanes once her pregnancy is diagnosed. Monitoring of pregnancy and neonatal care are areas of prime importance, because presumably the aim of any breeding program is to produce viable offspring. In addition, education regarding stallion reproductive physiology and management is alarmingly sparse, and the stallion is often neglected despite being half the fertility equation. The discussions of the mare and stallion are divided into the following topics: anatomy, physiology, and endocrinology; breeding management; diseases of the reproductive tract; and reproductive surgery. Additional topics in the section on the mare are pregnancy, parturition, and the puerperal period. Discussion of the neonate is divided into neonatal care and diseases according to body systems. Ninety-five authors and co-authors have contributed to this work. The number of North American authors reflects their affiliations; however, readers should note chapters by numerous internationally recognized educators from both Northern and Southern Hemispheres.

"This is an impressive looking, two volume, 3, 132 page text with 325 chapters, 150 colour plates and a CD with all the 713 figures from the book in colour." (Veterinary Times, 26 March 2012)
"For now, with no question, this book is the best chance we have of being up-to-date and knowledgeable about all aspects of equine reproduction, thereby able to serve well that most noble and unique of animals, the horse." (Vet Record, 1 December 2011)
"This set of books is a wonder, one of those that might keep you reading just for the experience and not saving it until you actually need it. I recommend it for all equine veterinarians who wish to be brought up-to-date on reproduction and equine health." (Veterinary Information Network, July 2011)
"A veritable bible of information, it includes everything from neonatology to assisted reproductive technologies.... This is an excellent book for anyone doing equine reproductive work. It updates the previous edition and provides more detail and more in-depth subjects than any other book on the subject I am aware of." (Doody's Reviews, June 2011)
"Like the first edition, this second is intended as a comprehensive reference focused on reproduction; but in acknowledgement of the fact that young equine vets need to be knowledgeable in other areas as well, the scope has been expanded and now includes coverage of topics pertaining to radiograph pre-sale and examination of the upper respiratory system with endoscopy." (BookNews, April 2011)
"At 3288 pages, 325 chapters, and with 250 authors, Equine Reproduction is nothing if not ambitious, and is a worthy successor to the original edition.... The two volumes come accompanied by a DVD of 713 (colour) illustrations, which is particularly nice for viewing ultrasonograms.... [contains] a wealth of new, updated and relevant information, which anyone with an interest in equine reproduction cannot fail to be impressed by and will find it hard to resist dipping into: a must-have purchase." (Veterinary Record, March 2011)
