5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous reference guide May 22 2014
Format:Paperback
This book has a lot of helpful information and great diagrams to go along with it. It was really nice to also be able to look at an overview of what adding different animals to my hobby farm would be like as far as work, feed, and feasibility. I have goats and have a lot of books and resources on them but I still managed to find the goat section in this book to be helpful thanks to its simplicity and organization. Worth every penny!!

5.0 out of 5 stars I cried... March 8 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When I read it for the first time, I cried, and it's no jokes...My eyes still get all watery even just talking about it after several months from receiving it. I've never had a better book than this, there is so much useful information that I've even used for my own pet bunny concerning its health. A pet! Not just farm animals! This one and the original are pretty much a must have in any homesteader's library as it's full of good stuff, well illustrated and concise.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I already had the first one and I enjoyed the set up of the first book. I was not disappointed in this. Its a great first book if looking for general information about breeds and such.
