I’ve owned mya for 8 years - she never had an episode of founder in that time - she was always “club footed funny” on her right front though …..
but a year an half ago in late august I gave her her fall vaccinations- she had a slight crest to her neck - but had that for a few years - not bad & not a fat horse she was in condition ridden 4/5 times a week - she was eating the same as she always was - Purina equine senior & a grass/alfalfa mix hay - nothing else new - within two days of the vaccinations she was showing extreme lameness & bounding digital pulse in both front feet - she was in shoes at the time & looking back & knowing what I know now I should have insisted they remove them - farrier didn’t & she absessed out of both coronet bands first & I made him pull shoes & started to soak feet & then she absessed out soles & coronet bands started to heal . This was horrific. I didn’t start soaking hay til I joined this group as I was told just to feed grass hay instead …. Such bad advice - I feel horribly.
