Please keep my lovely mare Willa in your thoughts and prayers.... I dont know how this happened, I am so careful. But she has a case of laminitis, a serious disease of the hoof that can lead to ...... ack....I cannot say it..... We caught it very early, and she is on medication, but I am devastated as she is a new mom and I have to move her and her baby to another facility when I leave for the mainland. Stress is not good for this condidion, but I must move her or risk injury when the fireworks happen here over new years....She will be so worried, she is a worrier. But I have to move her, its too dangerous here. I am sick with worry. I love this horse.... And the guilt...What did I do WRONG???? She is able to walk, and appears fairly sound, though both front feet are affected. She is off all grain, and pretty angry about it. The vet has her on bute 2 g a day, and she is on grass hay and oat/alf cubes only. We have so little veterinary help here on the island, and it is difficult to know the best thing to do...reading online is making me cry. Thanks for listening.
