This book was written for three classes of readers for horse-owners, for established farriers, and for veterinary students who have to be examined. Although an antique text, much of the information contained herein is of timeless value and will be of much use to modern readers with an interest, either academic or practical, in the subject matter. The chapters contained within this book include: 'Form and Action of the Foot', 'Preparation of Hoof for Shoeing', 'The Form and Manufacture of Shoes', 'Selection of a Shoe', 'Fitting and Application of Shoes', 'On Roughing', 'Injuries Resulting from Shoeing', 'Shoeing Bad Feet', 'Leather and Rubber Pads', etcetera. Originally published in 1895, we are proud to republish this antiquarian text now complete with a new introduction on the subject.
