5/26/2010 - Laminitis

Well it has been actually a year since I last posted but I had some experiences this spring with a large number of laminitic horses and I thought I might touch on this subject from a farriers point of view. First, let me say that if you have a horse that is overweight then he is predisposed to a bout of laminitis.

Hi Mr. Grimwood , I see where some are using gelatin to help promote hoof growth and strength, we already do a daily hoof supplement now. How much gelatin daily would you suggest for a 900-1000 lbs. horse. Most packets are offered in 3 oz. or more. Or is this even wise to do. Thanks!!!!

I have a 3yr old gelding(four "white" feet. I noticed yesterday "holes" all around the top part of his hooves. Almost looks like BB shots. Called a vet he said it was most likely fungus ( he's on pasture all the time) Have you seen this before? I'm going to keep him in at night until it gets drier. Also the vet said I could get an ontiment called ISP.
