How to get a few cadaver hooves?
So after countless hours watching videos and reading articles on hoof trimming, learning about internal anatomy of hooves, etc I want to actually get my hands on a few cadaver hooves for dissection and practice for trims. My farrier said to contact local equine vets, so I've sent a few emails out this morning.
Has anyone had success getting cadaver hooves? Is there anywhere else I should ask? Did you have to pay for them? Were they shipped to you from a slaughter house, or local? Were there complications getting them because of a law I might not be aware of? This is is manitoba Canada if that helps.
Any info is appreciated!
