Re: Considerations for possibly buying a second PPID horse

You can figure out how much your baseline costs will go up. Also factor in a contingency amount just in case he does get laminitic at some point. What struck me the most though was the description of his temperament. He may very well truly be a kind, kid-proof horse but many PPID/subclinical laminitis horses have behavior changes in that they are much more active and lively after they are properly treated. Some horses are exactly the opposite, sour and aggressive when in pain, sweet and kind when treated. Just something to consider.
