What's in YOUR freezer?

As more and more horse owners are becoming interested in learning how to care for their own horses' hooves, clinics like the ones we offer are in demand. Trimming cadaver hooves can be an excellent learning experience. You can't hurt the horse so a student can trim without that fear of hurting the horse. Afterwards dissecting the hoof provides an education about the enternal structure of the hoof that you just can't get from pictures of cross-sections. It might seem gross to some, but it's a fascinating experience for those interested in making life better for horses, starting from the ground up. Not only that, but it's fun!
