James Herriot meets Jeff Foxworthy in the real-life adventures of a traveling horse doctor.

Climb into the truck alongside large animal vet Dr. Madison Seamans and race to the aid of horses with wounds, stomach aches, allergies, and bizarre behaviors, as well as those in severe physical distress. Quite by accident, you'll find yourself familiar with and understanding common equine medical problems and how they are diagnosed and treated, all while marveling at the remarkable situations a country veterinarian can find himself in. Playful yet serious, honest yet tongue-in-cheek, this wonderfully written book is an up-close look at a well-lived rural life that is about as authentic as America gets. No one who cares a whit for the animal kingdom, and the humans who dare enter it, will be disappointed.

With plenty of “adventures from the road” and lessons learned during his years of shoeing horses professionally, Kraus provides a guide that is not only massive in value, it's entertaining, to boot. An excellent resource for all serious horse people who wish to keep their horses comfortable and performing their very best while making informed decisions and having intelligent conversations with hoofcare professionals.

About the Author

Dr. Madison Seamans is an equine veterinarian in practice for 35 years in Texas, Kentucky, California, Idaho, and New Mexico. He now lives in Capitan, New Mexico, with his beautiful wife Annette, two really good horses, two Jack Russell Terrorists (not misspelled!), and an undisclosed number of barn cats. “They just keep showing up,” he says, “and you can't just give 'em a good meal and send 'em on their way.” Dr. Seamans rode bronc horses till his brains came in—when he decided college was easier than shoeing horses and cowboyin'. This turned out to be a misconception, as college was very difficult. But he squeezed his four years into twelve, finally finishing his veterinary degree in 1985 at Texas A&M University. He earned a master's degree at the University of Florida where he studied the equine immune system. Later he did postdoctoral research and was a teaching resident at the University of California, Davis, College of Veterinary Medicine. He is a talented speaker and humorist, a regionally published author, a marginal artist, and a bad poet. Besides his equine practice and a strong interest in podiatry and equine behavior, Dr. Seamans' spare time is spent riding his horses, as well as expressing gratitude that he married a good trainer.
