Bare Hoof Care Functional Hooves for Lifelong Soundness, this is the second edition, written by Nicky and Andrew Bowe. Completely revised, updated and expanded. If you own a horse, you own its hooves!
Each hoof is the fine line between your horse and the hard Australian ground. Every stride creates a high frequency impact that needs to be dealt with. Hooves need to be the strongest link in the chain. Unfortunately, the hooves of domestic horses often become the weakest link, leading to loss of performance and often to early retirement. How we manage our horses’ hooves has enormous implications for their long term soundness, but to manage them, we must first understand them a little.
