Widely published equine authority Heather Smith Thomas shares more of her extensive knowledge in her latest book, Understanding Equine Hoof Care. This handy reference includes a wide array of topics including cleaning and trimming, basic shoeing, types of shoes, and common foot problems. In addition, Understanding Equine Hoof Care covers how domestication has compromised the equine hoof and offers instruction on how horses' feet can be returned to a more natural, and healthy, state through conscientious care. Thomas provides the reader with a wealth of information on how to maintain hoof health, treat minor problems, and know when it is time to work with a vet or farrier.

She has raised and trained horses for 45 years and has published more than 6,000 stories and articles in horse and livestock publications. Thomas writes regularly for more than 40 horse publications, including Chronicle of the Horse, Equus, The Horse, and Quarter Horse Journal.
