Read "No Hoof, No Horse"

Here is the latest installment on horses in fiction by S.A. Bolich.  It covers hoof care and problems.  Excellent material for complicating your character's lives in any culture that uses horses.

Adapting horse things to horselike characters (such as centaurs or sentient equines) can be hit or miss; this one is a hit.  And if you think natural horses are fussy about their feet, just wait until you see an actual person who considers their hooves to be "private parts."
