how do you tell if a horse has foundered?
ok, so my friend has gotten a 15yr old fleabitten grey pony on a free lease. we thought that he may have foundered because of his hesitance to move... so my question is, how can you tell if a horse has foundered?
any help would be great,
If you don't know the signs of founder, have a farrier look at the horse's feet.
There are plenty of reasons other than founder why a horse refuses to move, usually because the person asking is someone the horse doesn't think they need to obey.
It's more likely a respect issue than anything physical.
OP, look up 'low grade' or 'sub clinical' laminitis. Hopefully if it is laminitis, it hasn't progressed to more chronic or acute symptoms. More info & pictures would be helpful if you want us to give our opinions.
ok, thanks. :)
