Laminitis & Weight loss recovery

My 25 ish year old tennessee walking horse had a rare case of laminitis this past June in which his coffin bone had rotated upwards instead of downwards. My vet put some angled shoes (I can post pictures) on him which fixed the rotation. It is very hard to keep weight on him so he lost a significant amount of weight while on a diet. The shoes are now off and he is walking ok and I am wondering when/if it would be safe to do some light exercising so he gains weight back as muscle instead of just fat and what kind of exercising to do with him. He is on Winstrol to help with the weight gain.

I have never heard of the coffin bone rotating upwards. As far as exercise, what does your vet recommend?

The vet didn't say anything about exercising him but I'm going to call him to ask.
