I have a 16 year old pony mare who has become footy late summer the last two years. A nutritionist considers her to be her ideal weight, and I agree. ACTH tests have come back normal both times, and a post-TRH ACTH test earlier this year also came back within reference (although only 7 units below the new upper reference limit that Liphook are adopting).
