Anon. con Farriery - Some Questions and Answers on the Anatomy of the Foot and Leg of the Horse, and on Shoemaking (English Edition)
Presented as a series of questions and answers, “Farriery” provides solutions to a variety of common queries concerning the anatomy of the foot and leg, as well as shoemaking in general. Although old, the information contained within this volume is timeless and will be of considerable utility horse-owners and apprentice farriers. Contents include: “What Difference Would you find in the Bones of a Hind Limb, are they named Differently?”, “Are all Bones Tubular?”, “Why are Horses Shod?”, “How Often should a Horse be Shod?”, “Describe Fully the Os Pedis”, “What is the Periosteum and What are its Functions?”, “Where do you find the Interossious Ligament”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction.
