It takes more than a couple weeks for white line disease to develop... It's an 'opportunisitic' type of fungus which usually sets in after the wall of the hoof becomes weakend or damaged (poor conformation, not well balanced, irregular trimming, especially flat shoed horses, etc) all contribute to an improperly balanced hoof and the contraction of white line especially after the tearing of the hoof wall. Once the hoof wall seperates theres nothing to really support the boney column you then become more likely to contract laminitis. That being said it's likely your horse is prone to white line and probably this didn't happen under your care.
