PostSubject: WLD and Classy...   Wed Jan 14, 2009 8:49 pm

I got Classy last Sept. We got her home and I had the farrier out... Well, we discovered that Classy had White Line Disease extremely bad in one front foot and a little of it in the other front foot.

So we resectioned the hoof, treated the WLD, and then used an new acrylic substance to rebuild the hoof wall. My farrier is now on a 'watch list' because of her using the new acrylic mixture. It was a huge mess to get this stuff, but man does it work beyond our expectations. We did NOT have to rebuild the artificial hoof wall at all during this time. The acrylic mix did NOT break, chip, or wear away, it stayed put and grew out just like a real hoof wall would.

On Sept. 16th, we rebuilt the hoof and put a theraputic package on Classy. Today, just shy of 4 months later, we took off the current package to discover a completely regrown hoof and...

NO WHITE LINE DISEASE!!

I am so happy! I just had to share. Smile

When we turned Classy loose and watched her buck and RUN, for the first time since I got her... I think they heard our cheering in downtown Seattle. Smile

I'm so happy, it was so worth all the hard work we've done and Classy was a classy lady throughout it all. Totally made my day.

Congrats! I've never had to deal with WLD, but have worried about it with our horses that spend a lot of time in stalls. Thank goodness most of them are on turnout!

WLD is frustrating, to say the least lol. You can have the cleanest, most spottless place and your horses can still get it.

We discovered, through working with the goats and thier various forms of hoof rot, that copper kills it the best. The thrush buster and all of those types of things, don't do near as good a job as the copper.

So, keep that in mind if ever you have to deal with it. Copper is best. Smile

Classy is still trotting around out there having a blast! She's just a sweet old mare.

My El Hilal daughter used to get WLD sometimes in the spring. We pick poop everyday but it is wet in the Pacific NW. My Farrier used iodine crystals, put them on the WL and poured something on them. It smoked, killed the WL and worked every time. We were lucky, didn't have to do the dreaded resection - only because we caught it early. Congratulations on getting it cleared up!! It can be tough.
