Keys to Preventing Laminitis and Founder
By Dawn Willoughby
In most cases, owners can prevent the ravages of laminitis (inflammation of the laminae between hoof wall and coffin bone) and founder (pulling away of wall from coffin bone due to a broken laminae). During her six years as a professional trimmer, Dawn tried to educate owners about preventing this painful situation. Here is a review of what was shared with them every spring. https://blog.easycareinc.com/blog/bootlegging/the-challenges-of-spring-grass-laminitis-and-founder
Dawn Willoughby lives in Wilmington, Delaware with her husband, Drew Knox, Annie the Rottweiler and Sunny, OTTB. During her professional trimming career (2004-2010) she focused on teaching owners to trim their horses. She will work with owners on-line who have no access to trimmers and will conduct owner-focused trimming clinics internationally. Last summer she changed focus to study equine bodywork along with in-hand and mounted training as physical therapy for the horse. Dawn maintains an educational site, https://4sweetfeet.com/, where you can find free trimming videos and articles on all aspects of natural horse care.
