    if the chiro uses "long lever" techniques (where they jerk/yank a leg harshly) , or mallets, it certainly COULD have caused lameness the next day.

    That is still too high for most metabolic sydrome/IR/chshings horses. same as above. Still WAY too high for a lot of those kind of horses. Consider that that is nearly a fourth carbohydrates....

    In the video it is pretty clear the LH lameness is from somewhere above the LH leg. The reluctance to extend the leg forward is the key. Likely it was a muscle issue. See the huge BUMP in the top of...

    YEAH! Glad it helped .In recent years, vets and farriers are discovering that leverage reduction in the treatment of most types of lower limb lameness is a HUGE deal.

    I have seen many horses come completely back from mild to moderate laminitis,as long as any resulting founder was mild. But not in two months. More like 6 to 12 months.

    Also at a barn I was at before that there was one large shared tack room. And probably fifty boarders. One day my saddles had been moved to the topmost wall racks, and there was a note from the BO...

    I probably would have firmly told her that since she was so unhappy, she needs to move her horse and all her stuff elsewhere asap. And arrange a time and have a third party there to watch her get...

    After reading that I did a little online searching and lo ad behold apparently it can, very rarely, be diagnosed in forelegs.
    So ...mia culpa.

    Shivers does not affect forelegs. He has some other issue, likely pain somewhere in his knees, shoulders or back. Pain would also explain the "stopping" because either the folding of the...

    Any shoe with a good rolled edge (all around, not just the toe) should help. The object of shoeing them is to reduce joint movement as the foot rolls over the ground easier.
    There are lots of...

    that is way too small of a suspected chip for a non veterinarian / radiologist expert to even attempt to say. If there is a question I would ask for more views /angles of the area.

    I have applied quite a few equiflex shoes, most on forefeet. In my experience they hold up as well as a steel shoe in most cases. It is important that the farrier drive the nail heads firmly ...

    Correct shoeing would be healthier than casting.
    A good farrier (not a hoof trimmer)would be able to properly shoe the horse.

    That was going to be my exact reply. All too many lameness issues stem directly from the farrier work. A LITTLE imbalance or a little leverage on the bottom of the foot can cause subtle pain in...

    It would not still have been too thin if the shoes were left on that long. Soles grow/thicken with time. Four months will grow an entire new sole. So a thin spot should be filled in easily by two...
