Practical And Scientific Horseshoeing (eBook)
de Frank G. Churchill
Sobre o livro
First published in 1912, this book contains a comprehensive guide to horseshoeing, with chapters on scientific theory, anatomy, practical methodology, common problems and ailments, and much more. Profusely illustrated and easy-to-follow, "Practical and Scientific Horseshoeing" is highly recommended for modern horse owners and farriers, and it would make for a fantastic addition to collections of vintage equestrian literature. Contents include: "Discussion on Shoeing", "Anatomy and Physiology of the Horses Foot", "Normal Shoeing", "Shoeing for Gaits", "Diseases of the Feet. Pathological Shoeing", "Miscellaneous Hints", "The Bones of the Leg", "The Foot", "The Foot and the Pastern Axis", "The Prepared Foot", "Level of the Foot", "Special Shoes for Correcting Faults in Gaits", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on maintaining and caring for horses.
