As it was, the serene and hippic gloom of the handsome horse-breeder daunted the daughters of Eve, and they failed to make up their minds about the exact value of him, socially considered.
The opening and closing sections provide the frame, with the first devoted to advice on the colour, size and preparation of the horse (a well-trained, well-fed, well-proportioned chestnut or grey is recommended) and the last offering some practical but non-specialist advice on how to deal on a day-to-day basis with the more common hippic diseases.
Obscure items of vocabulary (even the specialist may need help in a hippic context with such terms as almohacar, alifafes, coraca, guavarro) are defined, using Covarrubias or Autoridades where possible, and supplemented by informed cross-references to contemporary writers on horsemanship and military matters.
