We have a welsh D - they are great - and he is fizzy all the time , might be a welsh thing. I would soak his hay , our vet has told us that it removes some of the sugar.
I would also either get a grazing muzzell or restrict how much grass she gets - if you don't you have a good chance of her getting laminitc, there is also a chance of grass protein overload which can lead to protein lumps or urticaria.

Thank you guys for all your advice!
I will definitely start soaking her hay and am off to get a grazing muzzle today to stop her eating as much grass!
And yeah, nutty saddler, I think it is a welsh thing, every welshie I know has had lots and lots of energy but that's what makes them so fun!
But definitely want to take precautions to stop her from getting laminitus or any other problems!
Thank you for all the help
