RE: Re: [RC] [RC] founder - Sharon Levasseur

You know Ginny, everyone had managed to get on to bigger and better
things... and then you just HAD to come back in here and stir the pot again.
This can't be any more fun for you than it is for us, so please take your
toys and play somewhere else.

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!
