Re: Toxic laminitis broodmare

That RF issue is likely an abscess.They are very common at this stage. You need to find a farrier/trimmer that will trim her when she's lying down or arrange for her feet to be blocked when she is being trimmed. Radiographs will be needed first to make sure she is not in imminent danger of penetrating.

Don't force her to stand or move. Being down protects her feet.
