Re: Unusual winter coat

Hi Katie, 

His July insulin is typical for a well managed IR horse.  Abnormal enough to confirm he's IR since he only had hay prior to testing, but well below the laminitic range.  If he stays under 20 uIU/ml then he is doing great, and it's awesome you are being proactive and monitoring him now!  Watch him as he matures and ages.  He's still young to see problems with IR but after about 5 years old it can start to cause issues.
