Think I could do it without a video.... 1. Get some foam & cut it to the circumference or slightly smaller, of the horse's feet. 2. Duct tape the foam to the cleaned feet.

My horse that foundered has a prescription for pads: nothing at the toe, 3 degrees at the back - for now.

He goes out to pasture (yes the vet knows that and wants him on our 22 acres of hills with his herd mates) everyday wearing a grazing muzzle and boots with the pads in them. <---the thinking behind that could be a whole 'nuther thread and it is working.

I cut two small piece of duct tape and affix those to the back portion of the pads, in the frog area.

I slap the pads on the hooves, then put the boots on.

The pads are right where I "slapped" them when he comes in at night. The boots and pads come off, until turnout the next day.

Thankfully he already had mats in his stall which has also been of immense help.

Pony with laminitis

I posted the video for other people maybe like me that didn't know what to do. But you all are so helpful.
Thank goodness he is also on mats and LOTS of shavings.
Thanks you guys!

Watched the video. The fella was mistaken when he said the right front was the worst foot. He's correct, you should work on the worst one first, but he missed this one.

Don't get me wrong, Ray Charles can see this horse is bad lame on BOTH. Just considerably worse on the left. And the handler probably shouldn't keep turning the horse left
