April gets exceptionally well looked after. Her owner John provides the best of everything including supplements we know give good results, sympathetic training, the best tack etc. She has a really enriched lifestyle living within a structured herd. When we took on April’s hoof care we thought she had about average hoof condition compared with all the other horses in our client base. There were very subtle growth rings occasionally on her walls which were noted.
One day In July 2007 we got a call saying she was foot sore and laminitis was suspected. Sure enough April had a clinical laminitic episode. These pictures show the results. It was a serious attack.
