Geriatric Mare Finds Comfort With Easy’s Slipper®

Farrier Dave Giza of Genesis Farriers in Culpepper, Virginia began treating the 25 year-old paint mare, Cricket, for laminitis and founder. She had been untreated for three years and because of the severe pain she was in, she had con ned herself to a 10 square foot area. She was practically immobile. Giza had to enroll both owners to literally hold Cricket up because she couldn’t stand on three legs. “There was dried blood encapsulated in the hoof wall,” said Giza. “This had caused bruising on the hoof, which led to abscesses. Cricket was in a lot of pain and barely walking.”
