The Northeast Association of Equine Practitioners hosted an e-Learning opportunity on June 3. Florida farrier Curtis Burns and veterinarian Scott Morrison of Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital in Lexington, Ky. were featured in the presentation “Management of Foreign Body and Topical Diseases Associated with the Hoof Capsule.” The webinar is available online, and is free to NEAEP members.
International Horseshoeing Hall of Fame farrier Michael Wildenstein demonstrates how to remove a shoe and trim the front hoof of a draft horse for farming and general use. This is part one in a three-part series he did for Rural Heritage a couple of years ago but is still a favorite.
Lameness is a huge focus for Dr. Judith Koenig as a clinician, researcher and instructor at the Ontario Veterinary College (OVC). Equine Guelph interviews Koenig about her current research endeavoring to heal tendon injuries faster and she also takes some time to talk about prevention.
Farrier Focus Podcast talks with Swedish farrier Rose-Marie Clark, who has over 40 years’ experience shoeing horses and has worked with many different disciplines and breeds including: trotting horses, race horses, Thoroughbreds and Icelandic ponies. She is the inventor of the Rose Foal Shoe, which is designed to help foals with conformation problems to develop normally and without lameness issues.
