For the first time in my horse owning life, which must be about 50 years (gulp - is it really that long and am I REALLY that old), I have a horse which has just come out the other side of an acute attack of laminitis, and I feel so guilty about it. She's done the Danilon and box rest and the hoof pads and is now out on a baldish patch of grass for about 1.5 hours a day, longingly staring at her pals on the other side of the fence as they eat their way through the day. Please can anyone reassure me that I will get to put her out with the others again for her fully allotted hours? I'm going to try very hard to get her as fit as I possibly can and plan to start lunging her later this week, once I can be sure that the explosions have ceased and then ride her around the Bank Holiday weekend when I can be sure of having somebody around, just in case. I just want my pony back to her normal, cuddly and sane self.
