    For the record, my farrier didn't notice the infection either until it blew up in our faces. The horse just had chronic "bad" feet. Chipping, crumbly, wouldn't hold a shoe. I had owned him for well over a year, using the same farrier. I moved him from a place with lousy pasture to a place with good grass and that's when the infection went from sub-clinical to full blown WLD.

    To treat him cost me a Saturday afternoon and less than $100.00. Worth every penny.
