Just to clear something up, although the terms "laminitis" and "founder" are frequently used interchangeably, there are not technically the same. Laminitis can lead to founder, but a horse can have a bout of laminitis without foundering.

Here's a good article that explains the difference and also offers a lot of helpful info on treatment and prevention for the OP: Laminitis and Founder in horses (equine), treatments and pain relief with Recovery eq

You're right DraftXDressage, those two terms are used as if they are interchangeable, when they are not, I should have done a better job clarifying myself. I sometimes forget things, like that. I also find it amazing how many horse people have heard of founder, but not laminitis. But that is neither here nor there, I should have done a better job explaining.

@DraftX - as long as the info gets presented! Tag team it is.

Like DraftX I would like to know where you heard laminitis? Did your farrier say something about it?

Hi Kaley,

I remember giving advice to you a couple of weeks back on concerns about dry feet and how to improve the condition your horse's hooves. This sounded like a minor and common issue then.

Then just last week I remember you asking for advice saying you had just had your farrier out to get your horse trimmed and said he had some kind of hoof wall disease and hoof cracks to which I said it sounds like he has white line disease and recommended you to stay on a frequent regular schedule with your farrier and to be sure to treat the freshly trimmed and cleaned out areas with some sort of hoof disinfectant. This was me assuming your farrier knows what he is doing and that you are just looking for some "extra" advice on the situation. I do remember in that post you said he doesn't have laminitis, I wasn't sure where that was coming from then either?

So now after reading your last few posts about your horse's feet and hind end lameness, my best advice to you is to get the vet out asap!

Still really hoping for an answer on when/where/why laminitis came up.

Ah, gotcha. Glad to hear that laminitis is not being considered as a possible cause of this horse's lameness.

Once, while suffering a bit of food poisoning, Dr. Google told me I had ebola.

OP has said elsewhere that it is severe arthritis.

OP - I STRONGLY suggest, that you get a vet to find out what is going on, and not google.
