Hi Everyone, Audrey here.

In this case the owner is good about the horse’s management. However, a well meaning house sitter let him out on the lawn to “mow” the grass.
Once laminitis takes place it becomes a management nightmare and under the best of circumstances, months to a year or more to get them sound enough to be ridden.
Ok, that wasn’t as quick as I intended it to be. Sorry!
