FW: Re: [RC] [RC] founder - Ginny Holsman



My best guess about the shiny coat is that the horse probably was kept in a blanket even when the weater was warm and sweated profusely as a result.

Although there are many other possibilities.

I am the person with the lein on the horse, that horse came here last August, a 22 year old mare, ematiated skeleton, hobbling along, but had the slickest, shiniest coat I'd ever seen in my life. They said she was recovering from an abscess in a front toe, but when the farrier checked her, she had special shoes on, and he said she had foundered recently. I didn't link the coat to the founder, but did find it odd that a horse that was so malnourished was so shiny. The mare's feet are doing great now, took special shoes off, and started light exercise. She has finally gained enough weight to cover all bones. (it was hard to put weight on her feeding only hay, but didn't want another founder.)

That is very good info, Vicki. Now if some veterinary type on this list would just tell us what the relationship is between founder and that incredibly shiny coat, I'd be a happy (ride)camper!
