Description of the book

An amazing historical manual of the restraint, handling and management techniques widely used for pets, horses, swine and other farm animals in the first half of the twentieth century. The techniques and illustrations of how to age all kinds of domestic animals are still in use today.

The descriptions of saddlery and the terms for parts of a draught horse harness remind us of a bygone era of working horses and also the history and origins of saddlers' terminology still used today. Farming terms and techniques are also of both historical and modern relevance.

The book covers cats, dogs, horses, pigs, sheep and cattle. It is full of beautiful line drawings of animals, their management, restraint for examination and medication and long-forgotten knots and rope tying techniques handling for the purpose of rescue or restraining.
