I posted here the it:Zoccolo article; I'm going to translate it as soon as possible.

  • Please note that the first two images can't be posted into Commons because they are covered by a formal copyright (with an author's permission to post them olny into wikipedia). Italian wiki allows the use of such images; can someone tall me if en.wiki too allows this?
  • Please note too that my English is very poor and my translation would be very rough. Nevertheless there is some discussion about shod and barefoot horses and a deeper insight into the hoof anatomy and function is very important. I'm asking for your help to edit it!

--Alex brollo 13:00, 5 June 2006 (UTC)== Please wikify! ==

Well, it has been a rather hard work. Someone is willing to help me with any edit? I added the wkify template by myself...Thanks!--Alex brollo 05:19, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

About translation help needed[edit]

I hope, is mainly needed a deep help about grammar, syntax and English "style". I added a template that suggests a "dual fluency" just because I didn't find a more appropriate one... Change it if needed! Thanks--Alex brollo 11:59, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

I will help[edit]

Hi - I've taken a look and there's clearly a lot of work to do - I'll get to it as soon as I can, possibly this weekend. - Ballista 16:50, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

Editing started, please comment[edit]

Hi Alex - I've made a start and would appreciate your feedback, before proceeding. - By the way, why did you pick on me? - Ballista 05:44, 10 June 2006 (UTC)

I guess, "pick up" a user means finding an interested user and asking a personal help. If so: I'm working on hoof as a main topic related to Laminitis, and I saw some edits by you in the history of that article. ;-) --Alex brollo 06:29, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

Ok - yes, that was what I meant but as I was only one of several, the mystery remains - no matter - I'll do more work on the article as soon as I'm able but not today. Any comment on my edits so far? Good to 'meet' you anyway - Ballista 06:33, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

I "picked up" Malcolm Morley too... I don't know if such a "picking up" is allowed by witiquette. If not, I apologize. Thanks for you edit! I edited back a single (but important!) word: mustang are not "wild" but "feral". They come from domesticated horses. About the mystery: perhaps I've been impressed by your nickname too... so hyronical from a Italian point of view: ballista=tall story teller ...  ;-) --Alex brollo 07:26, 14 June 2006 (UTC)


Diseases[edit]

How about a section on diseases and disorders of the hoof? Novickas 12:54, 31 August 2006 (UTC)

WikiProject Veterinary Medicine[edit]

I've added this page to this WikiProject - see on Talk:Farrier. I've classed it as B for the moment, but I don't think it would take much work to make it a GA - more references mainly. Any objections to being part of WP:VM, let me know - or just change it, but please leave a note to say why! Dlh-stablelights 11:40, 7 July 2007 (UTC)

Laminitis[edit]

I just had a try at editting the laminitis article and I ended up creating this subsection Laminitis#Laminae out of the text that existed there already - think it could extend the internal structures section of this article. Which also incidentally seems to have corium labeled in the diagram - but then in the text says The corium, a dermo-epidermal, highly vascularized layer between the wall and the coffin bone, has a parallel, laminar shape, and is named the laminae. Are they synonyms ? or can someone please clarify that section of this article.

Cheers EdwardLane (talk) 05:53, 30 May 2011 (UTC)

I'll have to dig out an anatomy text on this to be sure. As a layperson, I just say "laminae," but I could be wrong. Both articles need more and better sources. Montanabw(talk) 19:24, 30 May 2011 (UTC)

Merges[edit]

I favor merges of stubs if we need to do so, but we will need to write new narrative language for the "disorders" section, which is presently under the see also. ( By "we" I mean "I probably won't have the time and someone else will have to do it! --Grin) Montanabw(talk) 02:28, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
