    Default Does anyone know of any Good Books on Horse FootAanatomy and Farrier Facts

    I have had so many problems this year with foot and ankle lamenesses as well as foot and hoof problems. I would love to find a good book with clear pictures, diagrams, vocabulary definitions etc. Can anyone recommend one?

    I used to have one from a school in ENgland. Might have been BHS approved? Little blue cover book. Farriery? Let me see what I can find out. GREAT drawn images!

    I will have to find the one I have or what is left of it but look at this:

    Pricey but might be worth it.

    www.horseshoes.com. Join, post X-rays, post pictures and ask for help.

    But you should be talking to your farrier and your veterinarian. The internet is not the place to find out what is wrong with your horse. If your vet and your farrier don't know what is wrong, then you need to find a competent farrier and competent vet who can tell you what is wrong.

    "Equine Podiatry", Floyd and Mannsman is good.
    Pricey, though.

    Doug Butler's "Principles of Horseshoeing", also pricey.

    "Color Atlas of the Horse's Foot" by Pollitt, but I think it's out of print.

    I am a fan of No Foot, No Horse
    I found it understandable and helpful
    Starts out talking about anatomy, moves on to general shoeing principles and then walks through various problems and their causes/treatment
    There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.(Churchill)

    Eleanor's Elf, I am just interested in a better understanding of what I am being told. It appears that "our" problems are or have cleared up but now I am interested in the subject.
