That's a lark. Hundreds of horses get laminitis and get it bad and make recovery's. I owned an Arab gelding that foundered up so bad, we almost put him down. We SHOULD have put him down. But I was a kid and my parents and grandpa kept putting it off. By some complete miracle, with some barefoot farrier work, he calloused up and started walking right again, albeit a bit wonky from how funny his hooves are now.

This happened 10 years ago and now at 17 years old, not only is he still alive he is still SOUND. I have had him x-rayed and the vet is in disbelief that he's still standing much less racing around his pasture like a 3 year old due to the degree of rotation on his coffin bones. He moves out funny now and he's nothing but a trail horse, but he survived all odds and even rallied back to be a SOUND riding horse. He has never taken a lame step from the day he started walking again.

This is not the case for all horses, and definitely I would put this horse down, but your statement is just ridiculous at best and a really lousy attempt to make the OP feel like crap because YOU couldn't be bothered to actually READ the thread.

Printesa is getting a weekly treatment. Unfortunately I did not arrive in time yesterday to take pictures for you guys.

She has gained a bit of weight, the hoof is slowly (veeery slowly) growing.
The tissue is clean, no infection sign anywhere.

She became also a bit more vivid over the last months. Even started nipping a bit

As soon as we can - which is probably next Sunday - we'll post pictures of her hoof.

MM, thanks for defending the OP :) but I assure you she's a tough little cookie, really hard to discourage her. Otherwise she would not be one of the most valued volunteers at the center

I had wondered if you were from the same facility. Glad to see you here! I personally am rooting for Princess and have become one of this little mare's big fans. She has a lot of heart and it seems to me she is telling everyone she is not ready to give up - and that needs to count for something as well. I hope she continues to surprise everyone!

Yep, I am from the same facility. ****ed_Evan brought me in, and we met on this forum so thank you guys as well :)

Yes Printesa surprises everyone, especially me since I did not know she started biting Nothing serious though.
As I left now, she was hopping around in the main yard, munching hay. I sent her your best wishes
