Does spring pasture cause laminitis and/or colic in all horses?
Not all horses grazing a spring pasture will experience problems like colic and laminitis, but certain horses are more susceptible than others to the ingestion of excess sugars and starches. Horses that are obese or insulin-resistant due to disease (such as equine Cushing’s syndrome or Equine Metabolic Syndrome) appear to be more susceptible than those with more moderate body condition and normal insulin sensitivity.
