Understanding The Hoof & Basic Dentistry Clinic

Had to wake up way to early to the alarm today in order to drag myself out of bed and be out the door on time to drive to the clinic, but I know how long it takes to get there, about ten min less then I expected, which is nice, and good to know as this barn is offering other class’s though out the coming year. Below is the course outline but that is not really what happened, we spent three hours of the seminar on Dentistry and we went over by 45 on hoof, but that is ok, I already had a understanding of basic hoof care, but was quite lacking (far more then I thought I did) in Equine Dental information. Came home with at least five pages of notes, I am going to break them down and do different blog posts on different things
