I read something really interesting today about laminitus/ponies/horses etc........

It said summat to the effect that you rarely see a feral native breed, which is at grass 24/7....365 days of the year with Lami.......

Their bodies adjust to the seasonal fuctose levels ......rather than limited amount of turnout.........

It made sense to me......what are your thoughts?

wow makes sense to me too you never see many wild horses or horses out at grass with laminitis etc like you said they get used to grass fructose levels etc
