    Yes, let him lay down if he wants to. Getting pressure off of the feet will help lower the risk of rotation or sinking of the coffin bone.
    Cool soaking is recommended, not warm.

    Has your vet recommended anything--treatment or management wise--other than just giving banamine and standing in a creek? Bedding changes? Stalling? Padding on feet?

    These two articles would be good for you to read.

    Just thought I'd also let you know that it was an 'incureable' founder case and a donkey with indescribably bad feet & a death sentence from every 'expert' I'd consulted(but I'd had him since I was 5yo so kept searching & hoping...) were the reasons I decided to learn about & try 'natural hoofcare' in the first place.

    They were both well into their 20s when I started & well on the road to recovery by the time I started rehabbing other's horses, with lots of great successes.

    I highly recommend Pete Ramey & as a great source of info to get you started on that journey.

    Also make sure he is getting NO GRAINS at all

    See if you can get mag/ox from your feed store it is cattle supplement and helps to remove sugars/starches from the muscles and systems out of the body 3tablespoons a day for first thirty days

    I can not stress the foam enough it saved my mare when she had her concussion founder
