The chapters of this book include: 'Form and Action of the Foot', 'Preparation of Hood for Shoeing', 'Foals and Unshod Feet', 'The Form and Manufacture of Shoes', 'Selection of a Shoe', 'Fitting and Application of Shoes', 'On Roughing', 'Injuries Resulting from Shoeing', 'Shoeing Bad Feet', etcetera.
