Riassunto: Foot problems are the bane of horses' and horse-owners' lives. With the aid of over 1000 photographs, internationally renowned farrier Rob van Nassau looks at every aspect of hoof care, and describes in detail more than fifty common hoof problems. The first part of the book looks at the hoof from inside and out. It describes how to recognise good and faulty shoeing, explains the mechanics of the foot in motion, discusses foot balance, illustrates the anatomy of the foot and limb alignment, and offers advice on how to keep the hooves healthy. The second part of the book takes an in-depth look at the many common ailments and conditions that affect hoof care and shoeing. Each problem is clearly illustrated and accompanied by a straightforward description of the problem, its cause and treatment. Written for farriers, farriery students and owners, this book will make a valuable contribution to equine literature.
