The Vet / Farrier Team

When Vets and farriers can put their ego aside, make a group diagnosis, share knowledge, facilities, equipment, when necessary, be on the same page rather than upstage and compete, then we can inform and educate the horse owner rather than confuse them. When the owner understands what needs to be done, how and why, they can make good decisions about investing the time and money in a Podiatry Approach to saving an animal from crippling founder, navicular, or other hoof related injuries or disease. Correct diagnosis, careful planning of treatment, and a well designed maintenance program can be a lot less expensive method with a greater potential for the horse to return to work than the gamble that a shot in the dark will fix the problem.

  2. Hey Ron, great thing you have going here. Jimbo and I are doing another clinic in Magnolia texas. Something jimbo set up May 7 and 8. Check out my website, and I have started a blog as well at I have been discussing current cases with venograms and radiographs

  3. Ron, great web site. I understand what you are saying about vets and farriers working together. The only problem here in northern California is finding the vets that can put aside their ego. I keep looking, but like many young professionals they figure it is all containe in the textbooks. We all learn with time.

    • Ego is a characteristic that binds all of us as professionals in this business. It is the confidence that drives us to teach and express our beliefs.

      As experienced leaders in our field , the team approach allows us to all become colleagues for the benefit of the horse. Our egos should combine for that common goal and should not alter progress in new techniques or innovative tools and materials that allow us to achieve the best healing environment possible for the horse.
