Dolly's Bad Feet

Founder is a serious problem for horses. We bought Dolly at auction and we knew she had poor front feet. Dolly had been left on fescue her entire pregnancy. This created a high risk delivery for her foal and foundered her feet. The foal, Maple, was born safely under vet care. Now it was Dolly's turn to have her feet worked on after giving birth. Dolly's feet were studied,trimmed, filled in with fiberglass, and shaped to have new corrective shoes put on. She no longer trips when walking and she is enjoying better footing.
