Line by line answers here:

Yes, and there may also be an element of middle lobe enlargement.

If the horse had no past or present symptoms, no laminitis history or high insulin, that reading would be a grey zone and I probably wouldn't treat.

The natural progression of the disease has not been well studied.

Fall is the start of decreased fertility or anestrus in horses.
