Common Sense Shoeing - With Special Consideration for the Wet Climate by Mission Farrier School

Common Sense Shoeing - With Special Consideration for the Wet Climate
Mission Farrier School

This DVD series was developed to give viewers a common sense approach to shoeing horses in all types of environments, but with emphasis on the moist environment, when ever and where ever too much moisture challenges the integrity to the over-all health of the foot. At Mission Farrier School, we teach horseshoeing in the Pacific Northwest; however moist environments can found in many places; Hawaii, California, Florida, Kentucky: any place where there are irrigated pastures. The equine foot was designed to be as hard or harder than the environment in which the horse lives and is expected to work. A flexible foot is not a good foot. It is a foot already “at risk”. Living and working as we do in a moist environment, we see a lot of flexible feet, and most of them are in trouble to some degree. If you are a beginning farrier, we believe that if you can learn to shoe horses here; with some common sense, you’ll be able to go anywhere and successfully meet the needs of a horse. If you already have an established farrier business, we hope this DVD will help you evaluate, trim and shoe horses to meet their needs, given the environment in which they live. Thanks for watching.

This is a 2-Disc DVD set with a combined run time of approximately 150 minutes. Highlights include: conformation & environmental considerations, addressing a long-toe & low-heel condition, plus a bonus feature on basic forging skills & techniques.
