Re: New Member Active Laminitis PPID
If he's eager to get out then let him. As long as footing is soft, the area is too small to run around in, and the other horses can't push him around, he can't eat anything inappropriate, AND he's not on NSAIDS then it's safe to let him move as much as he wants to. If he's getting crazy running and bucking he will have sore feet after so we advise a small area to prevent the hijinks if he's feeling fresh. IF you can boot him to help protect his hooves, that helps a lot, but you have to be able to prevent the rubbing.
