This is a very important topic to know about when you are making choices that concern your horse’s health. So let’s jump right in.

Pretty much why I think boots are the way of the future if your horse HAS to be ridden on a road or any…

Cool, great primer on hoof anatomy, by the way!

Pretty much why I think boots are the way of the future if your horse HAS to be ridden on a road or any other rough terrain. I wonder what their opinion of glue-on shoes are, however as they are rather popular in the racehorse community and I’ve wondered if they allow the foot to expand significantly more than a nailed-on shoe.

WHAT ARE BIRDS

Hello yes! A Science Birb, here to explain the science!

Birb have VERY LARGE EYE in skull. Very good for seeing! But not space for muscle, birb cannot move eye. For mammal to make steady image, keep focus on single thing, always moving eye! Tiny movements, sometimes not even know. But birb cannot make tiny movements! So, birb must move whole head. And that is why the birb can keep steady the head when the body is amovering!

Thank you for listening to a science

I’m crying

That was the greatest scientific explanation I have ever read
