Just curious as to why a vet would say this? I was told by a well known big time breeder as well...so I want to be 100% sure. I know horses can founder for many reasons....Im just not sure what/if anything the vet was basing this on.
Everyone has an opinion and will state it. Others have experience in this stuff. It could be just the added stress of trimming to the mare before she has it that the vet said it. But with her being so large and having her feet trimmed....that could be why...but I can't very well see it being the truth. What has your vet said? Have you asked?
