My views regarding the precise seat of the disease in chronic lameness of the Foot of the Horse, have been, for several years, before the public ; and veterinary practitioners have since discarded the old and erroneous term of Coffin Lameness, and adopted that which is truly descriptive of this formidable malady, viz. The Navicular Joint Disease. I am now induced to collect the papers on this subject, which are dispersed through various numbers of ThE VETERINARIAN, together with my other papers in that Periodical, illustrative of the System of Unfettered Shoeing ; which system secures the ordinary defence to the foot, without confining the elastic hoof in its alternate expansion and contraction, and affords facilities to the growth and full development of the organ, notwithstanding a continued application of shoes to the two-years-old, or even yearling colts.
