    Thank you all for your replies, so lovely to hear of the recoveries. Mine had pads in all round and only mild rotation.

    Thank you all very helpful, when he said reduce hay to 4.5kg all I could think was ulcers. Luckily he is annoyed but not stressed

    Laminitis, differing advice?

    Thank you so much for your reply, the dengie is the one the vet wrote down but I will order the molasses free one. He was already one the Baileys lo cal for laminitis. It is minefield I will ring the vet re getting tests done ASAP x

    Laminitis, differing advice?

    Thanks, will get him sorted once he Is sound, daft thing is we have been so careful the last 18 months because he was older, have kept his weight down fed everything suitable for a laminitic. He has been seen by vets for injections, I always ask what they think not one has said he was too fat

    Laminitis, differing advice?

    Yeah that what we worked out, 7.5kg as right, I understand he wanted a rapid weight loss initially but seems hard to continue after three weeks. He has no others signs of Cushing but thinks insulin resistance, thank you

    Laminitis, differing advice?

    Yeah I thought 6kg would enable him to lose the rest of the weight more slowly. Yeah all hour is soaked for hours

    He told me to feed carrots and turnips which I thought was odd, I only saw him today, just odd that others have been told to feed ad-lib soaked hay

    Thanks I will look at the blue cross. Yeah vet advised carrots and turnips which surprised me. He is 16hh and the other half is cob 😀 just seemed odd that other people seem to half been told ad lib hay. Thanks all, I have never had. Horse with it in 40 years of horses.

    Laminitis, differing advice?

    He is just under half a ton, he is a connie cross so a heavy type. The vet wants him to lose more weight. He is now having carrots and turnips. He has 2 feeds of hi fi lite as well. I just think he lost enough in a short time?
