So my horse Cody that we bought 2 months ago foundered in 3 feet! O.o Im so frusterated. Now we have to put special shoeing on him and he has to be on special food, and its costing a fortune! (he is worth it. I love my boy.) How do I keep him from foundering again; or is there no way too? Because I know that if a horse founders once he is likely to founder again, I just wanna know if there is a way to maybe NOT have him founder again... that would be nice. Our farrier (not a nice guy) said we should just get rid of him and that he was no no good. I wanted to kick him soooo bad(but he only charges $30 per horse so I didnt.)--Hopefully he was kidding but I was (well, lets just say MAD). But his feet seem to be getting better. We switched his feed and are keeping him off of grass, and putting some moisture holding junk on his hooves, but yeah, he does kinda look better and its only been a week, so I hope that is a good sign.
Any Advice would be nice.
