New Reference Book in Our Online Store
We are in the process of building inventory in our online store
together with useful references in our website ToolBox. We recently
added the book : Building the Equine Hoof by David. M. Hood, DVM, Ph.D.
and Connie Larson, Ph.D. and we highly recommend it for farriers and their
clients. It is an excellent tool to carry in your rig for reference when you are
answering a client’s questions. At only $20.00, it also makes a great gift.
The book is divided into five sections: Hoof Care, Anatomy and Architecture,
Construction of the Hoof, Nutrition and Disorders and Diseases and contains
excellent supportive color photos and clear explanatory drawings and diagrams.
Dr. Hood is an internationally recognized expert in equine podiatry and founder of
the Hoof Diagnostic and Rehabilitation Clinic in eastern Texas. He was a long-time
associate professor at the Texas A & M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical
Sciences and is a frequent lecturer at conferences worldwide, including the AFA’s
2017 annual convention in Arlington, Texas.
Dr. Connie Larson is the lead researcher at Zinpro Corporation where she focuses on hoof
integrity, skeletal development in growing horses, trace mineral metabolism and immune
response. She is widely published in scientific journals and is recognized for her ability
to present complex scientific concepts in a clear and concise format.
