Re: [RC] Feaver Rings - A. Perez

Nope, and not all horses had been at the farm for long.
My suspicion is that these rings do not always indicate a 
present or past problems.

Were most of the horses shod by the same farrier?  Those 
rings indicate
some sort of inflammation in the corium at the time the hoof 
horn was
produced.  If many horses at the same place had them, then 
you should
look for the common source of inflammation.  Could be poor 
farrier work,
some sort of food that upset their system and caused a 
laminitic type
reaction in the hoof, everyone being wormed or given shots at 
the same
time and could have caused a laminitic reaction, etc.
