FOUNDERING IN THE FEET (in Farriery). A disease that affects the feet of horses from hard work or from heats or colds. It is attended by a numbness in the hoof; the animal is sometimes scarcely able to stand, and when he does, shakes and trembles as in a case of ague.—Mode of cure.—Pare the sole until the quick appears, then bleed it well at every toe, stanching the vein with tallow and resin, and tacking on hollow shoes, stop then with bran, tar, and tallow, boiling hot.
Harewood, Harry. A Dictionary of Sports. London: T. Tegg and son, 1835.
