Not too many years ago, as a general equine practitioner, I encountered my first case of laminitis. As fate would have it, this particular case was attached to owners who could not understand why laminitis should not be a death sentence. The horse was three years old and after extensive time, money, and “going where no one had gone before,” we had saved the front feet and lost the right hind to a luxation of the second and third phalanges. This sent me down a path of exhaustive inquiry that stabilized the luxation. This year, with the horse having been a constant research model for 15 years, I let her slip gently into eternal sleep. I owe a great debt to Misty and her owners, Geri and Andy Olds, who passionately worked to save this mare’s life, and in so doing began my career as an equine podiatrist.
