Care and Training of Trotters and Pacers, Vol. 1

Excerpt from Care and Training of Trotters and Pacers, Vol. 1: The Horseman Library The matter following page 119 is new, except the first appendix. The story and photo of Peter Volo as a three-year-old are also new. A few changes in old matter have been made, but they are too slight to note except the paragraphs on shoeing of 1911, 1912 and 1913 Colts. These have been lifted from chapter 6 and entirely rewritten for new chapter 7, with additional information concerning 1914 colts. The second edition of this book was exhausted even more quickly than the first and a third edition is now required within a year of publication. Not only is "Care and Training of Trotters and Pacers" the first book on the subject in over 20 years but it is the most popular book on the trotting horse ever published. Previous works in its field belong to the high wheel sulky era and are as much out of date as that style of vehicle. The changes in and additions to the third edition may be briefly specified as follows: The chapter on "Shoeing Colts," which followed Chapter III in the first two editions, now follows Chapter V (old Chapter VI). To this chapter on Shoeing Colts has been added "Appendix No. 2" of the second edition. This change centralizes the important subject of shoeing in four successive chapters. A new chapter has been added on "Feeding." To this chapter is added the remarks on "Chronic Indigestion" which appeared as "Appendix No. 1" in the first two editions, and the remarks on "Feeding Colts" which appeared in the chapter of "Miscellany" in the second edition. A new chapter has been added on "Grooming the Horse on Race Day." We would be glad to have suggestions from the readers of this work on improving it should a fourth edition be necessary.
