    Default The glass horse educational cd

    The thread on adjustment time for going barefoot is piling up posts. Which got me googling Dave Duckett, which lead to... Anyway I found this CD on horse anatomy and wondering if anyone has it and what their comments were on it.

    I was wondering if it would help in understanding how to evaluate different shoeing options.

    If not, can any farriers here recommend something similar but more specific to shoeing?
    Thanks!

    It is a good visual reference for anatomy - peeling the layers. Though IMO a poor substitute for a wet lab dissection.

    To evaluate shoeing options you need two things;

    1. A good foundation in functional anatomy.
    2. A good foundation in applied physics.

    Most people fall short on item 2.

    Without it you can forget about trying to understand Duckett's material.
