This vintage book contains a detailed guide to horse shoeing, originally intended for novices and apprentices. Written with the beginner in mind, it is highly accessible and profusely-illustrated, making it perfect for modern horse owners both existing and prospective. “Practical Farriery” contains a wealth of timeless information and would make for a useful addition to equestrian collectors. Contents include: “The Hoof”, “Structure of the Hoof”, “Growth of the Hoof”, “The Bones of the Leg and Foot”, “Joints and Ligaments”, “Tendons and Other Elastic Tissues”, “The Flexor Pedis Perforatus Tendon”, “Strained Tendon”, “Concussion”, “Lateral Cartilages”, “The Plantar Cushion”, “The Coronary Cushion or Band”, “Mucous Bursae”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on the care and maintenance of horses.
