Also I finally got back from Cornell her bloodwork - very metabolic - here is her link to the results - I have started her on metformin 2 days ago . I also updated her case history 

She is in pain - on bute 2 x a day - I need to wean her down 

I soak her hay am & pm - use wet beet pulp - no grain now (was using safe choice special low starch sugar last week now nothing ) she has vit e 2000 iu in beet pulp
And iodine salt 

PLEASE give directions so I can contact my farrier with your trim details - I want to save her 

Thank you

Hi Lori,

You're doing fine- no need to be sorry.

Has there been any trimming done since the radiographs were taken?

The views that are needed are: dorsal, lateral, sole and sole plane. No need for medials or heels. Sole plane means showing the bottom of the foot as you look at it from front to back. Here's and example:

Would you please retake the RF lateral photo with the camera literally on the ground so that you the lens is at the same level as the hoof, rather than aiming down on it. Set the camera so it's even with the side of the hoof  - like you did for the LF lateral shot. Also, please take the same set of photos for the hind feet.
