A year ago Baylee was diagnosed with white line disease. we have never experienced that here before. She had it in one hoof, and no other horses had it. For the last year, she has not been able to go out with the herd. Recently we have started letting her out during the day and keep her in at night (with a buddy of course). so far so good. She is such a little alpha mare. herding the other mares around. teasing the boys. she is so very pretty. If you have not read her story here, you might want to try to find the time. there are lots of images of her xrays, etc. from month to month. might help you know that white line disease is not necessarily a death sentence. though it can be very very serious and we did get to a really bad point with Baylee Bob and did end up cutting a tendon when there was so much "rotation" that her "toe bones" were nearly poking through the bottom of her foot. sorry for the unscientific writing. of course our veterinarians use the scientific terms. not me though. anyway, Baylee is happy. wish us luck. she does have a little slight limp but it's from the tendon thing, mostly, I think. Our farrier was here Monday. just for a second opinion. didn't really trim much, kind of hesitant to trim too much since she's feeling so good the way she is. We'll check in another month or so.
Here is a link to her story.
