Even though we have had no rain and it looks like the grass hasn't been growing, with the sun shining on the grass all day sugar volumes are increasing. Grasses will not have converted the sugar they synthesise during the day into fibre for growth overnight. This means the grass will remain high in sugar in the day. ??????
The sugar rich grass will stimulate an insulin response that can cause Laminitis.
Any horse, pony or donkey can get Laminitis, but especially the ones that are overweight!! They carry a higher risk because they are more likely to be insulin resistant and will therefore produce more insulin. ??????
