on Wed, 09/26/2012 - 22:04

In this video, we will take a look at the function of the Equine Hoof.  After watching the first video, you got an idea of what makes up the inside and outside of the leg and foot.  Now, you will see how the anatomy affects the function of the hoof.   Please post comments or questions should you have any.  As always, thank you for your time! See y’all next time. 

Episode One - Two Minutes with Tab - Anatomy of the Equine Hoof

on Wed, 09/26/2012 - 22:01

The equine hoof is a very intricate structure!  In my first 2MT video, I will go over the basics of the internal and external structure of a hoof.  You may be surprised at to see how many different bits and pieces make up the leg and hoof.  Each part on the inside, affects the outside.  Learning about the anatomy of a hoof will give you a better perspective of your horse’s health.  I hope you enjoy it! Thank you for your time, and I will see y’all next time. 

Thank You for Checking out 2MT!

2 Minutes with Tab - a free educational hoof care video series


Thank you for taking the time to check out Vettec’s new project, “2 Minutes With Tab” (or 2MT for short).

Our goal with 2MT is to share some of the hoof care knowledge I have gained over the last 3 decades shoeing horses.  As you know, the equine hoof is a very complicated structure.  After all my time in this field, I am still learning new things about hooves!  Education for a farrier never ends. 

I’ve had the opportunity to work all types of horses, from everyday ranch horses to athletic event horses.  As you can imagine, I’ve run across my share of therapeutic cases along the way.
