I have bought an electric hoof knife (which I won't need much unless I miss several weeks of either trimming or riding) and some better, lighter rasps for my small arthritic hands, and so far-we are doing great following these careful guidlines, some consulting with other books, frequent observations. I plan on doing this as long as I can and felt all were worth the investment-which was only about a hundred dollars more than one farrier visit to my four good friends. I also bought a 70 some dollar Ryobi battery operated sander that looks a bit like an iron. It does an awesome job of finish sanding or upkeep sanding on a weekly basis, and is easy, EASY to handle. The critters appreciate me holding it upside down and giving them a massage first....
Not a sore step, occasional small chips out of the quarters-easily rounded, lots of ability to return over and over to the books, and those "small sand cracks" that the farrier said were "nothing, and were just part of the hoof wall on my filly" no matter what I fed her, what boots I gave her, nor how I fussed and fiddled with supplements and exercise regimens...are disappearing with better mustang rolls and more frequent touch up sanding/ trimming.
I'm SO excited! BUT-all this said-I still have an old Morgan who has been barefoot for years and years and STILL requires easy boot gloves, or during heavy use-I put padded shoes on his front, because he just seems to ALWAYS have a "thin sole"...though the shape, frog health, wall thickness and overall appearance of his feet is gorgeous...so pay attention to your critter!
Lydia Nevzorova is the most incredible horsewoman I have ever encountered! Her dedication, intellect & passion put into practice and hence, her unprecedented empathetic approach towards horses is precious and positively unique. This quite comprehensive subject she converts, with the help of exquisite photographs, into easy to follow and well organized categories, followed by in depth and extremely detailed explanations of every day hoof care. The horse and its health and well-being in general, are always the number one priority.
I would imagine that even the most experienced hoof care individual can learn a lot via this exploration tool. It is definitely a scientific read and along term commitment of research about hoof structure, its anatomy and influence of different types of trimming; although, the never ending photographs, countless aids like arrows and hints and reminder boxes, will soon uncover that even a person who's never seen or heard of a horse' hoof before, can follow along effortlessly. "Bravo!" A job well done.
