Welcome to Hoof Corner!
This area of The Horse's Hoof represents OUR own personal opinions and recommendations regarding hooves and hoof care. We are James & Yvonne Welz, owners of The Horse's Hoof Magazine and website. While the emphasis of The Horse's Hoof is to promote barefoot as a whole, and provide a place for practitioners of all methods to gather and interact (Go Team Barefoot!), we do have our own personal way of doing things. Throughout this past 15 years, we have been quietly practicing barefoot horse care on hundreds of horses, ironing out what really works, and here we will share our knowledge with you.
This is not the only way, this is just our way: the Welz' way.
For more from James & Yvonne, we invite you to visit Hoof Help Online.
