good saturday morning all , something different today for you

Good Morning book addicts. Today I have something totally different for you . As you know I live on a horse ranch. So when I got offered this book.  I jumped at the chance to read it . A MODERN LOOK AT THE HOOF by Monique Craig

                  BOOK BLURB
A Modern Look At ... THE HOOF

Keeping horses comfortable and sound can be a complicated and often times stressful process not only for the owner, but also for hoof care professionals. The author started her learning journey out of personal frustration with these issues. Her goal was initially just to find solutions for her own horses. Eventually her hoof research provided results applicable to every horse. A must for anyone (owners, trainers, trimmers, farriers, and veterinarians) wishing to be well-versed in the hoof, readers will without a doubt gain new insights from this book on topics not found in other hoof related publications. This book is a new look at the hoof, focusing on a detailed look at its morphology (shape) and function, and discussing implications for how the hoof should be trimmed and cared for. The information is backed up with the presentation of accurate measurements from thousands of horses’ hooves, as well as examples painstakingly collected over the author’s 20 year involvement with trimming the hoof. This book contains over 300 color images, many with measurements and annotations, and will be an excellent addition to your hoof care resources.
                                  MY REVIEW
 Being a rancher and uses horses on a daily basis. I was so excited to read this book. I have a ton of hoof care books but this one is a more comprehensive and up to date book. She takes us through all the cares and woes of what it means to take care of your horses hooves. The book has detailed diagrams and pictures of the proper care of hooves . This is a great book for those who are in love with horses . It makes you open your eyes to the problems that could happen to your horses feet. The proper way to trim and also how to correct the errors that can happen when out on pasture . This book is going right into my medical shelf in the tack room. So if you have a horse person in your life or you handle horses on a daily basis . This is the book for you . So check it out .
