This book was not written solely for the horse racing fraternity. The actions I took were the result of Ladbrokes not honouring a bet I had placed. What would you do with #260,000? I don't know - I did not get the chance to spend it. Now was I going to let them get away with it without a fight? You can bet I didn't, but how far does one go? Sledge was a good mate of mine. He only stood about 3 foot high and weighed 14lb, but we had some smashing times together! Ladbrokes were a war unto themselves. I thought that two could play at that game. The trouble is that Ladbrokes hide behind an outdated act - the Gentleman's agreement act, 1845. When one takes the legal route for 5 years and gets no joy from the system, then they may take the law into their own hands. It was a shame that I could not be protected. When you haven't got a care in the world, your life can change dramatically. I thought that free from care was free from stress - wrong! I played Sherlock Holmes for 10 years. Did I get the answers that I needed? You will have to read my story to find out. "Ladbrokes, how do they say it in America? - Oh yeah! Have a nice day!"
We tend to think of the skin as a large sack enclosing and holding together all the other organs of the body, but it is much more than that and has many complex functions. Everything an owner does or feeds to the horse has an effect on the skin, not only is it a barometer of health, but also it is often the most neglected part of the body. The author explains the function of the skin in detail and shows how to maintain it in perfect health by correct care and grooming. She shows how to treat skin complaints from louse infestation to saddle sores, from mud fever to sweet itch, effectively and safely. Every horse owner should read this book.
