Eh, ya I have heard o' this. It's an inflammation o the foot. It's really, really painful. I causes tissue damage. The worst cases of lamintis cause problems with the coffin bone and hoof wall. If it's bad enough the coffin bone could get rotated and it'll go through the sole of the horses foot and ta the ground. That is what happened ta my friends horse, oh my gosh, it was so horrible I got sick when he told me 'bout it. This is the worst case senario though.

I would call the veternarian, Do you jump him? Will you have to stop if its a problem with the foot?

I have called a vet. And he said that it's pododermatitis, not laminitis. He gave her some injections with some remedies for pain and inflamation. I was told by vet to give her every day(4 days in a row) 10 mL of some remedy(I don't know what it is, perhaps for vascular sistem for light througput). I had cooled her legs three times on day with cold fluent water. Yesterday I have put on her legs compresses with hipertonic solution(salt in water). It would be best to have an clay with vinegar and put on her legs, but I can't find clay nowhere. She is limpin on her front right leg, and both of front legs are worm. Also there are rings on every hoof.

Did The veternarian ever say it would get better?

Is this what it is?

Canker (proliferative pododermatitis) or unguilysis is an infrequently found and difficult to treat disease of the hoof. Primarily affecting the frog in advanced stages may also infect the sole and wall. Resembling cauliflower in texture and color, it is described as a progressive chronic hypertrophy of horn-producing tissues. It can range from off-white to a yellow color. The normal horn is replaced by the vegetative growth and without treatment the effected areas spread as small finger like projections along the margin of the diseased tissue. This tissue is soft and almost cheese like in consistency. It bleeds easily when scrapped. The condition may involve more than one foot.

That sounds really scary...

I think that's not the case here. Vet said that it can be better but with proper tretman, but it will take some time. But it can also be worse, and he is afraid of that most. Vet honestly told me that in a fact he isn't quite sure about what it is certanly. He can only guess.
