From The Bookstore
Due to circumstances beyond our control , there are fewer than 40 D Manuals left in stock and we are not sure when we will be able to order more. Therefore, we must limit D Manuals to no more than two per order. Please remember our links to Amazon.com on the bottom of the Bookstore's home page as the D Manuals are still available as an E-book. We will not be taking backorders for the D Manual at this time. New Member Starter Kits will still be available without the D Manual at the reduced price of $33.45.

Tips For Guarding Against Heat Stress In Horses
The Horse
During exercise, there is a significant increase in the amount of heat produced by working muscles. Heat production estimates can increase as much as 50 percent during periods of intense exercise as compared with heat production when the horse is at rest. In response, a horse increases its sweating rate, moves more blood to the capillaries under the skin, and increases its rate of breathing in an effort to release this buildup of heat.
