Incredibly informative hoof articles

I'm currently researching hooves and I found a couple of great articles and diagrams I thought I would share!

Excellent diagram: Barefoot hoof diagrams - Detailed barefoot hoof diagrams showing the structures of the hoof

Informative introduction to hooves:

Incredibly in-depth article with tons of pictures: WHAT IS A HEALTHY HOOF AND WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE

If I find more I'll add them to this thread.

If you are going to teach a horse something and have a good relationship, you don't make him learn it - you let him learn it.
