Hi there We are emailing you from Queensland, Australia. We have a Mini Galloway cow that has slight deformity in both claws of her front feet. She shows similar symtoms to a horse with the early stages of laminitis. Outside exterior wall of hoof shows small horizontal ridging, not uniform in size or length. Her history: show cow, high grain diet for the first 4-5 yrs of her life with natural pasture dry to sparse, winters extremely cold & snow (New South Wales); then moved to a semi tropical region of coastal Queensland, subsidised grain feeding for the 1st year, since then on natural pasture that is relatively low in fibre content mid range nutrion plus grassy lucerne hay sandwiches. She has carried 3 calves to term, birth normal, healthy, no problems. The sore feet are getting progressively worse and she tends to lay down more than the rest of the herd, however she does maintain her condition. We look forward to your reply.
