The Tragedy of Rampant Hoof Problems
Susan Kauffmann is the co-author with Christina Cline of The Essential Hoof Book: The Complete Modern Guide to Horse Feet – Anatomy, Care and Health, Disease Diagnosis and Treatment. Trust me – despite the mouthful of a title, this is a wonderfully accessible book.
Anyway, here, Susan explains how tragically common hoof problems are and how unnecessary they are. What develops in the feet has everything to do with how we keep our horses, what we feed them, how they are able (or not) to move freely. There is one helpful insight after another in this short interview and I was so happy to produce it.
Susan is also scheduled to speak at the Best Horse Practices Summit this coming October in Lexington Kentucky, along with many other fabulous presenters, so check that out too!
