I'd like to add Gina, that on the day the vet arrived she had no heat
in her feet and did not respond to the hoof testers either. Mind you
her hooves are solid as a rock and 1/2 inch thick. The vet proceeded to
carve a piece of her sole away and then did the hoof test on her -wish
there were explatives on this site to show emotion!!!
She did have a very faint digital pulse though. -There were very few
obvious signs except stretched white line - which came after she had
develped small fat pads, until it was full blown founder.
