Please point out where I said that? Actually, I have stated exactly all of the above in NUMEROUS threads on this forum.

I said it can't be CURED. Not that it can't be treated or managed. I also specifically said that SOMETIMES shoeing IS necessary in order to be sound barefoot.

I think you need to re read my posts and try to understand what you're reading instead of jumping on the band wagon with another poster who disagrees with my statements.

I also don't remember directly naming anyone on this forum. Why is it that you feel threatened by my comments? I don't remember typing your name in any of my posts.

If I wanted to call you uneducated, I would simply do that. I have no tact and I am blunt. I find no need to tip toe around my opinions.

I disagree that you can't cure laminitus. I believe you certainly CAN in SOME cases....Said paint horse is cured. Cured means Restoration of health; recovery from disease. She went right back to her normal routine including feed and so forth after about two weeks. She needed no special care afterwards. We just did not turn her out on drought ed grass anymore once it got that strange bluish look to it just in case. No vet or farrier that looked at her would ever believe or be able to tell she had laminitus. No reoccurrance last I heard several years later. This is not as common of an outcome but it does happen.

It is true that when the damage has been great or the horse is predisposed, you will always have an increased risk of reccurance and the horse may always show signs of having the disease.

I also personally agree that typically, "barefoot" is the best way to rehabilitate. When I say barefoot, I don't mean unprotected, I simply mean no metal as a rule and certainly no peripheral loading on weak inflamed lamina. The use of boots, casting, soleguard etc....they all IME work very well. There is no one size fits all answer. Each case is different. Metal shoes have been used along with pour in padding by very skilled farriers and the horses have recovered. I don't think there is one way to skin a cat. There are a very few farriers in the US I would trust to care for my (theoretical) foundered horse besides myself. This is IME the rarity, not the norm. Lots of professionals out there are way way behind the times.

And im a very peace loving person.
This is why I posted my last one. You say it can't be cured. But praise the poster who said exactly that, curing a horse. Never any fever rings, only one attack.
See what I mean?
You might have not seen horses actually CURED from laminitis, with rotation if the P3. I have.
You are convinced shoes are needed, I am not BUT I said " what is necessary is de-rotating and adjusting the breakover, NO MATTER HOW IT IS ACHIEVED.

I'm also not against shoes and good farrier work, just to make that clear.

If I can say something about a subject, I do, to try to help. If I'm not sure, I say so. If I don't know I keep my mouth shut. But I would never ever call somebody uneducated or get blunt. I wasn't raised that way.

Its the rudeness - you can be blunt without that - and confrontational, irrational statements from you that I personally object to. You have also contradicted yourself quite a bit in this thread and I think its you that needs to re-read what you wrote. I'm proud to be a member of this forum because most of us here manage to remain civil and respectful of eachother even when we have opposing opinions.<br />

I wasn't contradicting at all. I Yates my opinions and experiences and disagreed with some posts here. I wasn't ride at all. It's my style. I'm not a tactful person and I'll just say what I want today with no regards to how someone else may take it or feel about it. Some ppl can't take it and some people appreciate my pure "to the point" style. I have no fear of hurting feelings or ppl taking anything I said the wrong way. It's how I am.

On that note, I'm out. I just had my wisdom teeth removed and am drugged to the Max lol

Talk later.

^^you obviously don't get that it is indeed very rude and disrespectful to be as you describe yourself & have come across to us. Therefore, if you continue in this manner don't dare jump on ppl for reacting to you! A
    01-10-2013, 04:20 AM
I don't jump on people. I state my opinion an experiences.

People may react however they want. I'm not being rude. I'm being my normal blunt self. If you feel so highly offended, then I invite you to put me on ignore.
