Question Chronic Laminits??

Hi everyone!

Back in early June my horse had an abscess in his front left hoof. The vet was able to dig a hole deep enough in his hoof to help release the pus. His hoof is almost fully grown back and I've been keeping the opening clear. Last weekend we went trail riding and he seemed fine and even did some cantering on his own and showed no sign of pain or limping.

This past Monday the farrier came out and did his hooves for me and told me that the lines in his hooves were starting to curve due to his hoof curving. She told me this could be an early sign of laminitis. So I began putting his grazing muzzle back on to limit his grass intake. I also noticed that he was walking stiff legged on his front legs and limping a little bit but not often. So now I have taken him completely off grass and have been giving him hay. Is there anything else I can do to help him? Thanks for all your help!

Don't ride him, keep the muzzle on him, keep him off grain, and make sure the farrier sees him every 4 - 5 weeks to keep his hooves in shape
