Understanding Equine Hoof Care
Your Guide to Horse Health Care and ManagementBook - 2009
Understanding Equine Horse Care is a handy reference guide that includes a wide array of topics including cleaning and trimming, basic shoeing, types of shoes, and common foot problems. In addition, the book covers how domestication has compromised the equine hoof and offers instruction on how horses' feet can be returned to a more natural, and healthy, state through conscientious care. In this revised addition, Thomas has added new material about hoof maintenance, shoes and boots, and diagnostics and provides the reader with a wealth of information on how to maintain hoof health, treat minor problems, and know when it is time to work with a vet or farrier.
