My Section C gelding had laminitis last summer and then again this year. In the past I’ve got him to lose weight by avoiding hay, but now he’s sharing a field with other horses who are all fed hay. This means he’s getting some, and he’s putting weight back on. I’m not feeding anything but a few carrots and apples – I hate the thought of him being hungry but can’t risk him gaining weight. Can you help?
