Books on Hoof Health and Trimming

I'm wanting to learn more about hoof health and physiology as well as mapping and trimming. Does anyone have any good book recommendations for these topics?

^second above for the basics. Pete Ramsey's textbook, and Andrew Bowe's'the pony that did not die' are also great. Latter is regarding founder but good general info too.

Oh & re mapping, ELPO used to have it all on their lameness prevention.org site but seems to have been removed. You'll get it if you subscribe, along with DVDs, and I'm sure if you google/YouTube you'll find it somewhere in the ether

Pete Ramsey's 'under the horse's DVD set is really valuable too.

Haven't read replies but this is a great one - The Essential Hoof Book

Some horse people change their horse, they change their tack and discipline, they change their instructor; they never change themselves.
