Ah, springtime. Can’t you just see those rolling green pastures of Kentucky’s Bluegrass, dotted with grazing bloodstock? Their fetlocks are buried, the grass is lush, the dew’s shining on each strand of grass and…Why are you shuddering? Do you, like so many horse owners who have endured the helpless misery of a foundered pony or horse, equate lush meadows with laminitis, ouchy feet, and reprimands from your veterinarian and farrier? ("You’re killing this horse with kindness!")
