Laminitis is a disease that affects the feet of hooved animals and is best known in horses and cattle. Clinical signs include foot tenderness progressing to the inability to walk, inflammation, and increased temperature in the hooves. Laminitis is characterized by the pain of the digital laminae of the hoof and severe cases with outwardly visible clinical signs, also known as founder.

Every species has a “shock organ”, which is an organ whose response to a given medical condition determines the nature and the outcome for a given disease. The foot is a complex network of veins and arteries, allowing it to compensate for changes in the environmental temperature and body conditions. The temperature of the foot can fluctuate almost moment-to-moment. This is one of the several reasons that the foot is so susceptible to systemic illnesses and behaves like a shock organ, as other organs do in other species.

In the horse’s foot there are elusive circulating factors, termed laminitis trigger factors that cause an acute inflammatory condition that could lead to laminitis. Depending on the severity of the laminitis, there may be movement of the coffin bone, rotation, or sinking, and/or a combination of both rotation and sinking to various extents.

Laminitis can be a very debilitating disease. There is a poor understanding to the underlying pathophysiology and traditional imaging has limited diagnostic capacity. High field strength magnetic resonance (MR) imaging allows direct visualization of the laminae. The MR imaging proves to be both useful to both in the assessment of clinical patients, as well as further investigating the pathophysiology of the disease. The objective of this study is to note the anatomic changes within the foot from the initial diagnosis of laminitis. Both measurements and evaluations were done on horses with clinical signs of laminitis, as well as horses that are in population that are at risk for developing the disease.

Determining the outcome of the horse’s survival may include how much the horse is suffering, how much of a survivor he is, and how much he is willing to continue to fight. Another important factor on a full recovery is how much the owner is willing to spend financially and their ability to work closely with the farrier and veterinarian towards a good treatment plan for his recovery.

If the farrier and/or veterinarians are able to catch laminitic deterioration in time and turn the condition around before it gets too bad. Two advances resulting from research to improve the effects of laminitis are the use of heart-bar shoes and performing hoof-wall resections.

HEARTBAR

heart bar

At the first instance of founder, the horse may display signs of being extremely stiff, glued to the ground, and his pulse pounding. He may be leaning towards his hind legs in attempt to keep his weight off the front forelimbs and most likely his insides will be in an uproar with the acute overload of carbohydrates.

founder stance

Even though at this point, there may be no signs of founder, in which the coffin bone has begun to tear away from the laminae and descend, the horse still may have damaged feet that will later exhibit the clinical signs of founder with extensive damage. The first step to take in a potential founder would be to call the vet. While waiting for the vet to arrive, the horse can be made comfortable with a temporary frog support made out of a piece of carpeting cut in a triangular shape that resembles the shape of the frog or a roll of gauze taped under the hoof for support.

temporary frog support

Once the veterinarian arrives, he will administer medication to counteract the effects of the disease process. Within the first 15 to 30 days is a time to observe for abscesses that may form due to dead tissue that is entrapped within the hoof. At this time it is also important to get x-rays done to see if there has been any rotation or sinking of the coffin bone. If the x-rays show a change in the bone position, the vet may suggest having the farrier place heart-bar shoes on the hooves.

LAMINITIS

The heart bar is placed under the frog and measured to specifically fit each hoof. The heart bar elevates the heel at a specific degree depending on how much the coffin bone has rotated or sinks into the bottom layer of the hoof. The heart bar is designed to elevate the heel and give them pain relief without cutting off the blood circulation in the feet. This allows the horse to put less pull on the bone. After placing the heart bar on the hoof, normally the horse will begin to walk with more comfort. After the heart bar has been in place for the first 30 days, it is good to then have x-rays done again.

heartbar shoe

During the recovery process from a founder, many x-rays are required to insure that the coffin bone has not continued to rotate or sink. Abscesses can form throughout this process. If an abscess occurs, the shoe can be removed and a small hole can be made in front at the junction of the distal laminae to allow the abscess drain. During the first sixty to ninety days, the horse will need daily soaking and bandaging of the foot, regular exercise, diet supplementation, visits from the farrier to keep the hoof trimmed appropriately, as well as to reset the shoes, and visits from the vet.

abscess founder

Sometimes it is not enough to place a small hole in the hoof to drain the abscess, but a hoof-wall resection must be performed.

hoof resection

This is a painless procedure done without anesthetic, so that it will be evident if it helps to relieve the horse’s pain. Once the hoof wall has been resected, a heart bar or a glue-on shoe is then put in place. The foot is then bandaged to cover the sole and also wrapped with several layers of duct tape to keep the bandage from wearing through.

A good topical dressing such as sugardine can be used to enhance the healing process. Soaking the hoof in hot water, betadine, or Epsom Salt twice a day is also helpful in the healing process. Another element in promoting hoof growth is supplementing the diet with methionine and biotin.

With a great amount of care, even in a horse with severe, chronic founder, he can be brought back to being pasture-sound or even riding sound in a few cases in horses with a milder case. In either case, the need for care never stops. If an owner decides after a year or two that his horse has had enough special pampering, so he stops having the feet trimmed and the shoes reset regularly, he very soon will have himself a lame horse.

A police report was made after discovering grain that had been thrown in the sand to the horses. Late one evening a week or so ago we heard the horses running through the backyard. Bob went out the back door to see if everything was okay. He heard someone running through the woods. Upon further inspection, he noticed the babies were eating something off the ground at the fence line. Bob went into their paddock and discovered grain to have been thrown into the sand for the babies to eat. He immediately had me come out and hook up the horses. He made a report with the sheriffs department and then proceeded to clean up the granules of grain out of the sand. Although, we don’t know how long this has been taking place, we have been dealing with colic symptoms in several different horses throughout the last 2 months.

In the past few weeks we have placed several cameras around the property to help put a stop to the harassment from the neighbors and others. These people knew of these cameras and were actively waiving into them daily. In the area in which the grain was thrown into the sand, it was also known that there were no cameras in this area.

We had a similar incident such as this back in 2010, when we lost a 1600 pound OTTB named Shia to sand colic after Ted Koran and Karen Koran with The Critter Place openly admitted to feeding him and our other horses grain in the sand at the back fence line where we could not see them.

Although, we could not identify the intruder who threw grain in the sand to the horses, we do know that someone is trying to harm these horses, so that they can portray the negligence on us.

We are making the necessary arrangements to downsize the horses, so that we can better protect the ones left behind. There is an open investigation going on against this hate group and we pray that someone can help us put a stop to this hatred soon.

As we are actively trying to place ads to advertise horses that are ready for their new homes, these people are flagging and having them deleted. We could use your help with networking to help find these horses homes as quick as we can. We could also use financial help towards feed and hay to help provide for the horses until they are moved into new homes.

Ted and Karen Koran have been harassing us here at the Domino Effect Rescue Ranch since the spring of 2010, shortly after sending him a Christian chain email that I randomly sent out to 300+ people on my email list.

After this, the harassment started with phone calls to Fire Marshall, Animal Control, Sheriff’s Department, Code Enforcement, PETA, DOA, Hernando Health, News media, Senators, and other government officials all resulting in UNFOUNDED complaints. Over the course of 4 years we have been frequently video taped and photographed by Ted and Karen Koran. They have jumped out of bushes to take photographs of people coming and going, stolen mail, and possible arson. They have admitted to feeding our horses grain in the sand. They have lied to Channel 10 News against us showing a picture of 2 different horses and claimed them to be one. They have stolen my pictures and made up false stories regarding the one-frame image. They have never considered that there is a story to be told in the remaining images leading up to and after the one special image that they make all of their false claims against. Pictures have been taken at different angles through the fence claiming they have lost hundreds of pounds overnight. They have made claims that we have stolen horses and that we send them off to be shot or sent to slaughter houses. They have made a public mockery over our distant past, therefore, leading the public to believe we are not worthy of horse rescue.

One of Ted’s latest attempts to sabotage the DERR was his email to Rachael Perrin Rogers with WTSP stating “Why won’t anyone investigate this?”

After the Hernando Health came out on November 11, 2013, Bob filed a PIR (public information request) for both the final report and/or emails regarding this investigation.

Bob received the following emails regarding the investigation dated on November 11, 2013.

Why won’t anyone investigate this?

Many people are concerned with health issues on a property. The property is used to keep up to 30 horses on less than an acre and a half. Animal control has no power because of the lax laws in Hernando. For four years horse manure has accumulated to the point where water stands and there is concern of manure and urine saturated water that accumulates could spill over onto neighboring properties.
There are also multiple horses buried in shallow graves within 30 and 40 feet of a well. The graves are also located where the general public that visits this property including children must walk over. The concerns with the flooding and decaying carcasses is very disturbing.

Every agency I contact refers me to another. No one seems to care about public health. We already know that authorities don’t care about the horses. I also added a few pics of a hole around a tree where a horse is tied up to eat. Please open and read the last photo.

Thank you for looking into this matter.

Patti,

Yes, we received this two days ago. Although there are detailed photos, there is no location address attached to the complaint. I e-mailed the complainant requesting an address, and that we could investigate a possible sanitary nuisance, but he replied yesterday with an insult and still no address. However, I contacted the Animal Services Supervisor. They have investigated in the past and provided us with an address. I will investigate with the area inspector today. It may also be an unlicensed L.U. well. I will update you after our inspection.

Patti,

The Hernando County Health Department, Environmental Health Section, investigated this complaint today. Hernando County Sheriff’s Department/Animal Services were also present, along with the property owners. Joe Vozniak and I observed the area where the horses are kept. There was a minimal amount of horse manure and no flies or maggots were observed. No sanitary nuisance exists as defined by Florida Statute Chapter 386.041. Consequently, this is an invalid complaint. The property owners were questioned concerning the nature of the horse rescue operation and we made the determination that the well is a private residential well used by the resident property owners and is therefore not subject to licensure as a public water supply well. Also, the complainant submitted photos of flooding occurring on the property. I showed these photos to the owner, and she said they were her photos from her Facebook page and they were taken this summer after an extreme storm event which occurred in the Brooksville area. We did not observe any standing water on the property. I will notify the complainant of the results of our investigation.

Please contact me if you need additional information.

The screen shot below is an UNFOUNDED COMPLAINT from back in July when it was raining every day and the grounds were flooded. Tom Logsdon had reported to the Hernando Health that we had a fly infestation and that manure was running off onto his property.

After Bob spoke with the officer regarding this complaint, it was made known that Tom Logsdon, who had recently built a round pen out of twigs, had called in this complaint. Ohana Rescue had just adopted a horse to him named, Ohana Dream, which he was keeping in this round pen made of twigs and tied together with rope. He was planning to train horses and he was worried that we would give him a bad name being next door to us. Shortly after this, Ohana Rescue came and took Ohana Dream away from Tom Logsdon for some unknown reason and cut all ties with him.

The Hernando Health arrived at our gates on November 11, 2013, after a report was made by Ted Koran that we had horses buried in shallow graves causing a fly infestation, foal odor, and manure draining off onto their property.

The Hernando Health officers came in the gates and immediately found no evidence to substantiate the complaint. He also made known how difficult and argumentative that Ted Koran was with him trying to state his case.

The officers reported the allegations to be UNFOUNDED and after speaking with Corporal Stockton and Lieutenant Bachelder of the Hernando County Sheriff’s Department and learning of all the UNFOUNDED allegations that have been made by a hateful group of people against us, he advised us that they will NOT be coming back out to investigate further.

We are still awaiting this report and will post when ready.

    *DOMINO EFFECT UPDATE*

Yesterday we had an AG Officer and then 3 Hernando County Sheriffs Officers visit us because of multiple complaints by Carrie Young from Ohana Rescue who has only stepped foot on our property one time, over 2 years ago. Her complaints, all that were unfounded, were as follows:

1. Mini being housed on a cement slab.
2. We purchased a stallion and brought it back to the rescue.
3. The horses are starving and have NO hay.
4. Horses eating bark off trees.
5. We have buried multiple horses and are contaminating the Hernando County water system.
6. We transport horses out in the middle of the night to the highest bidder.
7. The horses have no coggins.
8. We have horses that have come up missing. It is said that our hay farmer is shooting them and/or sending them off to slaughter.

These are the lies being reported to the Department of Ag by Carrie Young of Ohana Rescue. The report will be posted when received.

I have watched this harassment take place for 3 years now. I have seen articles multiply by Maryann Tobin yearly. I have seen hate groups against us. I have had many screen shots sent to me from FB friends informing us of the constant harassment that is continually taking place against us. I have posted public awareness to let others know that these posts are false and have shown proof of documentation. These officers are tired of the harassment and are willing to assist us with information on who is making the complaints.

Sharyl Ranchhand (Horbal) called the sherriff’s department today stating that we had a horse here that is injured. Sharyl lives 30 miles away and has not been here in 6 months after we broke all ties with her after she injured My Josie and all the horses came back from her place both thin and full of worms. She has not been welcome here since and has joined the hate group against us.

There have been multiple calls to the Sherriff’s department over the past few weeks. We will receive the reports and address them from there.

I will continue to provide public awareness against this group of attackers, as I do not feel like anyone has the right, especially another rescue, to continually harass a rescue and post false information to hurt their rescue efforts.

To those of you out there who feel this is appropriate behavior and continue to condone those who attack a rescue, take a step back and ask yourself what your supporting. These attackers are fueling the fire to destroy a rescue who has and will continue to rehabilitate and rehome many horses.

After I posted this on Facebook, Carrie Young called me out on a group page on Facebook “The Tampa Bay Horse & Livestock Page” managed by David Woods and Jonalon Rogers. Carrie Young stated that we were falsely accusing her of reporting us to the Department of Agriculture making false allegations against our rescue.

Carrie Young then called the investigator for the Department of Agriculture and threatened her with a lawsuit because she disclosed public information of our accuser to us.

    *MAKING THREATS TO A DOA OFFICIAL IS A CRIMINAL OFFENSE*

We requested a “public report” of the e-mails that took place regarding the false report made by Carrie Young, followed by an investigation on September 26, 2013.

After a lengthy inspection of this premise, there was no evidence found as to mistreatment of animals, starving horses, or burial of dead animals near the house. All animals on the premise appeared to be well fed and cared for, so it is this inspector’s opinion that these complaints are unfounded., Having spent an hour on the phone with the complaintant, it appears that there are many personal issues behind the complaints, and these issues have been going on for years.

Subject: Complaint Investigation

From: “Glisson, Nancy”
Date: Thu, Nov 07, 2013 10:39 am
To:

On Sept. 20, 2013, this Inspector was asked to check on a complaint called in to Tallahassee concerning Domino Effect Ranch. Complaints consisted of starving horses, abused animals, and unfit living conditions for the animals. This inspector visited Domino Effect on Sept. 26, 2013, and after inspection found that none of these conditions existed at Domino Effect, and in fact all the animals appeared to be well fed and cared for. There was standing mud on premises, which cannot be helped after all the rain incurred during that period.

It is this Inspector’s assessment that all complaints were unfounded.

Once upon a time, I do believe that Carrie Young’s EXACT words were “I don’t have to prove that I am telling the truth, you have to prove that I am lying”
