Watch Your Horse's Weight or it Could be Trouble
from The Star-Ledger
If your horse is overweight, it might be more than just an appearance problem. The first obvious evidence of Equine Metabolic Syndrome likely is weight gain. But the dangers of this condition go far beyond pudginess. The animal with EMS is at risk for laminitis (also known as founder), which disrupts blood flow to the laminae structures in the hoof that secure the coffin bone.
