    I was looking for some illustrations of tendons and came across this book online:
    http://www.gutenberg.org/files/16370/16370-h/16370-h.htm

    LAMENESS of the HORSE
    BY J.V. Lacroix, D.V.S.

    Professor of Surgery, The Kansas City Veterinary College
    Author of "Animal Castration"

    AMERICAN JOURNAL OF VETERINARY MEDICINE
    1916

    Page down through it for the pictures... I have never seen quite the like. I guess they really believed in using extreme cases to emphasize a point!

    Did you notice the body contition of ALL of these horses?


    I'm sure horses worked so hard back then, that is why they seen so much of these injuries.


    Current day: Most of these horses would have been put down a long time ago.........and not let get this bad.


    They needed to kep these horses seerviceable.................Sooo sad!

    Thanks Tbitt, 1st HTML worked. :)

    I read on a few about the treatments, but read some horses are used before the treatment is complete. :'(
    I understand horses were the livelyhood of the owners, but to have a backup horse for another's down time would have helped. If it could have been afford.

    Puts "Black Beauty" written in the 1870s into perspective, doesn't it? And kind of makes you scoff at the "horrific" treatment of today's Chicago carriage horses. ::)

    I have a book packed away somewhere that is a reprint of the Horseman's Encyclopedia from 1867ish. Covers lameness, illness, behaviour problems. Very interesting. Recipes for colic remedies that include drams of peppermint oil, comfrey, etc...

    When I first saw this thread, all I could think was "If he's been lame sine 1916, put him down already!" >:D
