Talking Hooves Clinic, Monticello, IA - CANCELLED

Clinician:
  • Martin Kenny CJF APF
Overview:
  • We will have  4 horses minimum to work on and show how to shoe to take into consideration the effects of ground reaction forces on the hoof capsule specific to the horse we are looking at.  What will make this most unique is that at two of the horses have been shod by two different farriers I have worked on these specific horse with last year. One 12 months prior to clinic and one about 6 months prior. Both horses were scheduled for euthanasia and the one from 12 months ago has been sound for ten months and the other one is 90% sound at this time. I've been consulting with the farriers attending these cases via photos etc since doing them myself last year. We will have photos from when we started on these two horses as well as x-rays from the and current x-rays to compare to as well.
  • Once farriers sign up we will offer to let them bring a problematic horse they need help with them, if they wish, (theirs or client owned) so we can assist with this clinic. 
APPROVED FOR 14 AAPF CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS (7 CE CREDITS PER DAY)
