Hi Hilde,

It is important to test her non-fasting baseline ACTH (to see if your pony is getting enough Prascend to control the PPID) as well as insulin and glucose to see if the diet is low enough in sugar and starch.

We are not overly familiar with haylage but it seems very popular in the UK and northern Europe.  It is a great feed for equines with EMS, if you can be confident mold is not a problem.  In the US and Canada hay can be tested for mold toxins at various forage testing labs (like Equi-Analytical)...can you look into that type of testing in Norway?
