Horse Anatomy & Physiology / Nutrition Books
I need some help in finding some good books for Anatomy & Physiology and some Nutrition books. Has anyone got any recommendations or equally helpful, any you would avoid?

If you know any good websites, journals or written any articles yourself I would be really grateful if you could share :-)

Thanks everyone.

No one?

I've found Equine Science by Sarah Pillner & Zoe Davies, but it seems to have mixed reviews, anyone any thoughts on its content?

I'm not sure what's available in the UK, but amazon has a lot of books on A&P, and there are usually a lot of good reviews for each title.

As far as nutrition books, I got The Horse Nutrition Handbook by Melyni Worth, and I love it. Here are the chapter titles: Basics of Equine Digestion, All about Nutrients, What to Feed and Why, Designing a Balanced Feeding Program, Feeding for a Lifetime, Feed Storage and Feeding Tips, Pasture Management, Diets for Common Equine Disorders, and Appendices. There is a lot of good information in there, and all the formulas are given in metrics.
