Help with horse with laminitis- underweight, hard keeper
Well, I'm in a bit of a difficult situation..I have an 11 year old gelding which I had rescued about a month ago..He is still a bit thin, and is a known hard keeper. The problem is he is recovering from a case of laminitis..He is on free choice grass hay only and I'm told he will have to be like that forever, but I was wondering if anyone here had any suggestions; what is safe to feed a prone-to-laminitis hard keeper once he is fully healed, as the grass just isnt enough for him as far as weight goes?
