"Horseshoeing" is a 1903 handbook on farriery by John W. Adams. A wonderfully-detailed and profusely-illustrated guide, this volume will appeal to horse owners and farriers, and it is not to be missed by collectors of vintage equestrian literature. Contents include: "Gross Anatomy of the Foot", "Bones", "Hinge Joints", "Tendons and Flexors", "Foot Axis", "Lateral Cartilages and Plantar Cushion", "Pododerm (Foot Skin)", "Horny Box, or Hoof", "Bars", "The Frog", "The Hoof", "Physiological Movements of the Hoof", "Growth of the Hoof", "Care of Unshod Hoofs", 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.
