Hoof Anatomy Postcards

Distal Limb Pocket Guide

This handy pocket guide evolved from our very first product, a series of hoof anatomy postcards. 

These high quality, full color, over-sized (8.5"x 5.5") hoof anatomy postcards proved to be a fantastic teaching tool for vets, farriers and trimmers, however the individual cards were tricky to keep track of.

Just prior to attending the International Hoof Summit in 2013, Paige had the clever idea of binding them together into a booklet which went on to be an outstanding hit. And so the Distal Limb Pocket Guide was born!

Distal Limb Pocket Guide

This portable teaching tool is invaluable aid in educating your clients on the basics of the distal limb and hoof which in turn inspires trust and confidence in your ability to help their beloved horse.

Demonstrating and sharing knowledge is vital to the health and longevity of your business and having this handy resource at your fingertips will help you achieve this goal.

Featuring careful dissections and crystal clear photography, along with a high level of attention to detail in the design, this Guide provides a level of professionalism that far surpasses the norm.

Printed on 130-lb, glossy card stock with a full-color front and back, this Guide is both rigid and durable. The spiral binding makes for ease of use and portability.
