My pony is 18 years old and has come down with lami again. He already had sensitive thin soles, Arthritis in hocks , ems , Cushings and liver damage so will be on pain relief for the rest of his life along with prascend. He had xrays yesterday and one foot is worse than the other which is visible when you look at the hoof the sole is pushing through slightly and he's walking heel first in that foot. He is now on box rest for 2-3 weeks and will need heart bars. He is retired now as was not enjoying been ridden . I have the hard decision of deciding what to do next for him. Once he is as good as I can get him he will just live in a field on restricted grazing but is that fair if he is always going to be a bit sore in his feet.
