[RC] Founder - Rae Callaway

I just got a new boarder who due to extremely erratic feeding at the previous 
stables, has foundered in one hoof.  She's a TWH, about 10 years old, and while 
shaggy, seems to be in good weight.  I can see a shadow of ribs when looking at 
her, but I do have to press a bit to feel them.  I haven't noticed any limping 
or any attempt to keep weight off the foundered hoof.  The owner has had her 
for 8 months and is pretty green, but really wants to ride and is happy if all 
she can do is just light walks around the trails.  I have never experience 
founder in my 30 years of having horses, so I would love any tips or 
suggestions of what to keep an eye out for with this mare.
