Athena is an 18 year old Paso Fino. She is staying with a friend for awhile. She has some potentially serious issues. The vet appointment is at 9:15 on Monday. Meanwhile I am slowly working on each hoof, trying to make her more comfortable. She can only tolerate holding each foot up for about a minute. I am worried that she may be showing signs of DSLD (Degenerative Suspensory Ligament Desmitis). She has severe forward flares, dropped soles, and very dropped pasterns. She is also a sweet, sweet girl.
Here is the link to a very comprehensive blog - My Horse has DSLS/ESPA. The blogger did a great job providing a comprehesive resource base.
