    Nice Video!!! My horse was suffering with Laminitis few months back. I had asked my vet to take some radiographs (X-rays) of my horse’s feet to determine the degree of rotation of the pedal bone within the hoof. X-rays are really important as they show you a clear picture. I understand the importance of diet for a horse and so I used to feed my horse with only Hay until he was fully cured.
