Not illustrated. 1914 edition. Excerpt: ... part of the horse's foot supporting the weight of his body, and performing its work, is represented between these two papers (indicating with-papers). That part of the hoof outside of these papers cannot assist in supporting the limb as it is outside of the line of gravity. It is supported by the outside toe and the inside heel. Is it any wonder, in view of the fact that the foot generally rotates to the outside, that we find bruises and corns upon the inside heel? It is utterly impossible for the foot, the toe included, to rotate in the direction of either side without increasing the work of the opposite heel. This whole condition is so complicated and hard to understand by the average horse-shoer or horse-owner that I thought it might be wise to reduce it to a condition that would be more simple and more easily understood, and this is the result of my efforts. (Speaker exhibits chart.) Do not open the heels. Do not cut the sole or frog, nor remove enamel from outside of wall. Do not apply any form of shoes that will not furnish support to the sides of the limbs. Always fit shoes with the heels an equal distance from the center of frog. But I find it necessary to make several corrections that it may conform with the ideas of some who are engaged in instructing students in this Work. I have selected a couple of specimens of hoofs sent by a veterinary college for your inspection. I find that the sole and frog have been H1081? carefully cut and pared, that the enamel has been carefully removed from the outside of the wall, and that the one heel occupies a position nearly three-fourths of an inch closer to the center of gravity than the other heel. I find the foot has been furnished with a shoe that we have just proved, or at more
