Read Books Ltd, 6 okt. 2017 - 126 pagina's
First published in 1832, this is a detailed treatise on farriery, with a particular focus on the nature, origin and symptoms of navicular joint lameness. Written by a member of the Royal Veterinary College and accomplished army surgeon, it goes into great detail of preventative and curative treatment, as well as offering practical tips to horse shoeing. Contents include: "Manuscript Transmitted to the Veterinary College in 1816", "Navicular Joint Disease Unknown as the General Seat of Chronic Lameness of the Fore Feet", "Contraction", "Two Forms of Contraction", "The General or Apparent Contraction", The Occult of Partial Contraction", "Insidious Nature of Contraction", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on maintaining and caring for horses.
