Re: Why an IR horse shouldn't have shoes on?
A few more comments:
An insulin of 41 is in the sub-clinical laminitis range. She likely has stretched lamina/whiteline, but we'd have yo see hoof photos to know.
Although stumbling can have lots of causes, long toes is a pretty common one. I'd check that first.
IR is horses is more similar to pre-diabetes in humans. Very few IR/EMS horses progress to actual diabetes, which is elevated blood sugar (glucose).
