Corrective Farriery - a textbook of remedial horseshoeing
Corrective Farriery Volume II completes a 2-part work covering all
aspects of remedial shoeing and the associated background knowledge.
It is written with both farriers and veterinary surgeons in mind. Like
the companion volume, it consists of nearly 400 pages, printed in full
colour, with contributions by 14 authors from around the world. Both
the photography and the many colour diagrams make this a visually exciting
The editor, Simon Curtis,
was made an Honorary Associate of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons
in 2002 for his work in bringing together farriers and vets to the benefit
of both. He is a Fellow by examination of the Worshipful Company of
Farriers and is currently the Chairman of the Farrier’s Registration
|Corrective Farriery starts with what is probably the most detailed anatomy of the equine hoof ever published. There are chapters on hoof repair and hoof cracks, how to apply various methods of glue shoes and a chapter giving clear information on the prevention of interference injuries. Subjects are covered from both a veterinary and farriery viewpoint; chapters such as fractures of the distal phalanx describe the types of lesion encountered and the way in which both professions use their skills to promote healing. There are also chapters that give a greater understanding of the history of remedial shoeing and how farriers can work successfully within an equine veterinary hospital.|
