This book/journal is amazing!
As an owner of a pony that was recently diagnosed with PPID, his hoof care is top priority along with diet and exercise. The information provided along with the record keeping sections are very well organized that will make tracking our progress easy and convenient.
I highly recommend “The Humble Hoof Rehab Guide: A progress Journal”!

Not just a working journal, but a great easy to use reference! All the important info broken down into easy to reference chunks – mineral ratios, normal vitals, AAEP lameness scale and more. A true gift for those of us suffering from information overload at times.

This handbook is amazing! I own an equine supplement company and from a nutrition standpoint I’m so impressed with the diet information covered in this book. Diet plays a large role in hoof rehabilitation and this guide does a fantastic job covering nutrition for all types of horses who are traveling down this rehab road.

This thoughtfully created journal will help get the rehab horse owner squarely on the road to increased hoof health. Not a detail or important aspect of the process and journey has been overlooked–much concise information and guidance to be found here. Many of us will wish we had this resource years ago when we started, and many horses will be spared wrong turns and regression, and have faster recoveries and brighter futures, as a result of this labor of love.

This is an extremely well organized and thought out rehab journal. Alicia not only explains the importance of diet for rehab, but also demystifies feed testing and makes it easy to understand. The journal has plenty of space for recording vet and farrier visits, exercise, feed changes, and much more; in a way that’s very easy to understand and follow along. You can tell she was a skilled teacher in addition to an excellent and highly intelligent hoof care professional. Anyone, owners, vets, farriers, barn managers, anyone involved with horses will benefit greatly from this book.
