SUMMARY

A complete reference on farrier science & craftsmanship--one of the best modern books on the subject. The author is not only an experienced farrier & teacher, but a writer & scholar as well. Through a step-by-step approach & minimum of technical jargon, Butler, who has taught farriery & horse science courses at several universities, manages to be sophisticated enough for the student & fundamental enough for the horse owner. Part one includes horsemanship & horse care, anatomy & biomechanics of the equine foot, trimming procedures & pleasure horseshoeing. The focus of part two is specialized needs of performance horses. While at first glance, the book may seem to be of more value to a farrier, Butler has, in fact, given horse owners criteria by which to judge their farriers. Butler's point is that the serious farrier needs to present himself as a professional. The book has over 1,000 illustrations & is written in a very readable manner. Also recently reprinted, Butler's STUDY GUIDE & WORKBOOK (ISBN 0-916992-05-5) ($24.95 plus 3.00 S/H) is designed for use with P-II. It can be used for self-study or in a formal class setting. Working the exercises will prepare one for farrier certification examinations. To order: Butler Publishing & Tools, P.O. Box 1390, La Porte, CO 80535.
