Re: Helter Swelter -- July and August Goals and Progress

Jingles plus more jungles for your horse! Nasty nasty laminitis! Heat and humidity can bring on an attack. Living in Arizona with a couple of laminitis prone horses I’ve seen it several times. Ice leggings can help pull them through it. Good luck.
