Well I think she was talking about horses becoming sick from too rich of a diet (ie founder) which can happen in the spring?

Yes, I am saying you can google that stuff all day long and you wont find it in in depth research and statistics and complete explanations, etc...

I honestly would take it as an insult that the scientific community feels that absolutely must dumb down everything for horse owners.

Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.

There is a lot of research out there on laminitis, the role of feeding, and possible theories as to how it develops, and a lot of it is very in depth. The problem is that most of it is published in journals that are difficult to access. I would suggest searching a site like pubmed, and you will find more research than any person could hope to digest. If you can't get the journals then send me a PM and I can email copies to you - I have access through my university to most journals.

Does anyone know a site where I can find the health risks of pasture feeding? By this I mean when a horse is stuck out in a pasture with no grains, vitamins, anything. Just grass.
Does a wild horse get grains and vitamins, or does it just get grass?

A good web site for health questions and answers is The Horse: Your Guide to Equine Health Care you will have to sign up but its not a spammy site and the information available is vast.
Good luck on your paper and remember its best to stick with facts.

Safer Grass - A Resource for Equine Forage Nutrition also has some good information on pasture feeding and hay types.

Wild horses get much more than grass. They have hundreds or even thousands of acres of land to roam, munching on everything from grass, to trees, to bushes, plants, etc. Wild horses also don't grow as tall as domestic horses, or are subjected to the rigors of training and competition .

For a pasture puff though, I agree, grass pasture and/or hay is probably going to be fine. It's when the grass runs out that the horse can have problems... Some people don't realize you have to feed hay in the winter, or they run out of money and think the horse will do okay...

I don't really think things are dumbed down. There is plenty of scientific information on nutrition.

You seem quite scorned.
I'm sorry, I just don't see it. *Shrug*
