WHAT NOT TO DO
Do not walk a horse you suspect has laminitis. Each step he takes increases the stresses on the alreadystrained laminae. Instead, keep him as still as possible. Ideally, you’d leave the horse exactly where you found him until the veterinarian arrives. If he must be moved, choose the shortest route available, preferably over softer ground. To move him over a longer distance, try bringing a trailer out to where he is and letting him ride in to the barn. If he wants to lie down, let him.
