Farrier services and consultation are available through Steve Kraus, the faculty farrier at the Cornell University Hospital for Animals on the Ithaca campus. Kraus, who has been shoeing horses for more than 40 years, is an expert on traditional and adhesive horse shoe technology. He is available to offer consultations to Cornell Ruffian Equine Specialists clients on shoeing services and options for treating horses with hoof and limb injuries. Consultations can assist with lameness assessments, create plans for limb deviation treatment in young horses, and consult on fracture cases. The consultative service can also provide information on basic horse shoeing, corrective hoof trimming and shoeing, and therapeutic shoeing follow-up.
