Overview

"The Foot of the Horse" is a detailed, vintage guide to farriery, with a special focus on diseases and ailments that effect the foot. It has chapters on everything from ligament injuries to pointing, and will appeal to those with a practical interest in farriery or equestrianism. Contents include: "The Foot of the Horse", "Honor to Whom Honor is due", "A Suggestion to Horseshoers", "Foot Anatomy of the Horse", "The Pedal Joint", "The Foot Constantly Enlarged by Growth", "Points on Pointing", "Equilibrium Essential", "Horny Feet and Fleshy Feet", "Why Flesh-Footed Animals Do Not Point", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on maintaining and caring for horses.
