"Understanding the Horse's Feet" Book
By John Steward
Explaining the complexity of this subject in terms that the lay person can understand, this book will give horse owners confidence in discussing foot-related issues with their vet or farrier/trimmer. It details the structure of the horse's foot and how to examine it, the function of the hoof and other foot structures, and investigating lameness. The perennial problem of laminitis is examined in depth, together with other conditions that commonly affect the horse's foot.
