Here for experts, beginners and do-it-yourself horse owners is all the information necessary to the modern farrier's art of horseshoeing. In this second edition Robert Wiseman describes and illustrates not only basic shoeing techniques but also special shoeing procedures for the American Saddlebred, Quarter Horse, draft horse, parade horse, and race horse, among others. Hoof diseases and defects that cause lameness and sometimes complete disability are clearly defined, with instructions for the corrective shoeing methods necessary to each ailment. A specialised section on metalwork and handmade shoes should appeal to the devotee. The book is illustrated with photographs and diagrams, including shapes, sizes and modifications of horseshoes.
