- overgrown hooves / use caution to accomplish (resolve) in the easiest, least painful manner: 82 rams, 18 ewes
Annotation: Animals often die from grain overload (acidosis). Those that survive suffer inadequate blood flow to the hoof, which results in laminitis, or foot overgrowth [“Hoofcare”]. Cf. lame. This condition seems to parallel, in humans, the complications of diabetes.
