Re: white line disease??

Hi, Carol,

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  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
