Re: white line disease??
If your friend lives in an area where her local farrier may not
be quite up to date on the latest diagnosis and treatment for a
variety of hoof problems, (as I do), access the Farrier website
at www.horseshoes.com. There is a bulletin board at this site
which addresses whiteline disease (WLD), plus all kinds of help
on founder, laminitis, etc. Post any questions you may have,
and a journeyman farrier will respond to the bulletin board.
It is a wonderful resource and extremely educational. I hope with
your help, your friend is able to find the help she needs for her
