Brought to us by the RSPCA in July 2010, Rosie, one of our rescued Shetland ponies, was suffering from severely overgrown hooves, obesity and chronic laminitis. Symptoms of laminitis include stiffness, lameness, standing on the heels, a reluctance to move, heat in the feet and increased fetlock pulse. Obesity can be a cause of laminitis. With careful management of Rosie’s diet she is now a normal weight and her laminitis is much improved.
