If you have recently purchased a horse or pony, take a look, a close look at their hooves if there are marked rings half to an eighth of the way up your horses hooves then your horse or pony is likely to have suffered from Laminitis before.
If you are keeping them in, reduce the amount hay and feed they get and a handy hint or one way to reduce their intake of hay is to put two or three haynets inside each other and then fill the central hay net up and tie all hay nets together, which reduces the amount of hay strands that they can eat at a time, but it still gives them something to graze on.
Remember a change of pastures can also trigger Laminitis - keep an eye open -
