    Lorry sulphur smell

    Definitely do not move it until it has been checked. Most likely to be batteries, but they may not be the root cause.

    Laminitis question

    I agree, sometimes it isn’t possible. And it’s a wise and caring owner who recognises this, and puts an end to the misery. Condolences to your friend.
