Follow the development of the horse’s foot from birth to retirement in this exciting new color guide to foot care and problems. Designed as a resource for trainers and breeding farms, and as a reference for farriers and veterinarians, this book does not teach how to shoe, but rather when and why a particular shoe or treatment may be needed.
More than 50 pages address flexural (tendon, club foot) and skeletal problems in foals and yearlings, with instructions for making correction devices made of plastic, aluminum, and adhesive composites.
Simon Curtis FWCF, of Newmarket, England is farrier to some of the world’s leading racing and breeding operations and a well-known lecturer. He is resident surgical farrier for Rossdale & Partners veterinary practice in Newmarket. Examples are included from his work in Europe, Australia, America, and India.
While focusing on the Thoroughbred, most information is practical and helpful for all use with any breed.
