Bracy Clark’s hoof – an update

I am delighted to say that thanks to the generosity of members of the Central Veterinary Society we have been able to have some conservation work carried out on Bracy Clark’s pasteboard model hoof.  At the same time the surface dirt was removed which means that you can now read the labels much more clearly as you can see in the photographs below.

We are also very grateful to colleagues at the Royal Veterinary College who have kindly produced this 3D model – we hope you enjoy exploring the hoof as much as we do.

    Clare, this is wonderful news! The conservator did a great job. And how exciting to be able to present a 3D image of the hoof for more people to see this rare survival. I am thoroughly envious and hope that we can do the same with our Auzoux hoof at some time.
