No no, wouldn't feed it with oats! If anything just a a little beet pulp. And I've used omega horseshine on her before. Love it! Going to talk to my vet about both and hopefully we can move forward with introducing her to a new diet. Now that she's doing much better, and is out of the acute stage

Since your horses laminitis isn't related to diet you probably shouldn't worry too much about low starch/low sugar restrictions while she's feeding a foal
Obviously we all should regulate those things in accordance with need but horses with IRS/Metabolic syndrome are extreme cases and need a much higher level of management
What your horse needs now is good grazing, good hay and a nutritious feed that will benefit her and the foal she's feeding
I wouldn't bother with Cool Calories - I did try it on my IRS mare when she was losing some weight this year but they made no difference at all. There are better oil based supplements that have added essential vitamins
