Thrush doesn't bother me, I have never had it but white line disease scares the crap out of me. When I was first shoing I ran into a few cases of it and didn't know how to deal with it.
Now I watch every horse I shoe like a hawk and anything that resembles WLD I treat immediately.
Copper sulfate solution is on the shelf in a squeeze bottle and I use it daily on the horses feet in any crack or crevice I can find.

^ any foot problem/disease scares the bejesus out of me, haha but i think thats because ive always been taught that the horses mind and feet/legs are the most important part of the horse, and that those always should be kept in tip top shape

I personally dont mind if the horses are inside or out, i dont like it when some people call one or the other abuse because either inside or out boarding could turn into 'abuse'
my horse lives in an 'outdoor stall' only because she is a super slow eater( so we couldnt just bring her in to feed her, then it would take HOURS for her to finish eating, im not exagerating!) and she needs oats/supplments,haha i llove outdoor stalls tho because the horse is still outside, and still has something to look at at night and stuff.

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.
