 Why is it so difficult to find a way to find a way to prevent laminitis from being a fatal disease. It is so heart breaking to lose these wonderful horses to this horrible disease.

I think there are several ways horses  get laminitis, but I believe it all boils down to their ability to keep circulation flowing freely and evenly. It seems to follow what diabetes is to us humans, and research is ongoing with the human/ horse similarities .

Bernardini's loss just killed me.  He was one very special horse.  So much intelligence in his eyes.

 A moving tribute to Bernardini (from the Racing Post)--- will bring tears to your eyes: he was a wonderful race horse with an amazing personality and demeanor-------

Thanks for this.  Those plain brown wrapper horses can be special.  John Henry comes to mind.  Nothing plain about Bernardini’s gaze.  There was so much intelligence there.

 I agree about the plain brown wrapper horses; brings to mind American Pharoah-not a drop of white on his face, but oh, what a grand animal he is!!!
