Find out why cassie was signed up to care...
CARE member Karen relates that the ‘battle of the bulge’ has been an ongoing worry with her mare, Cassie, for many years. “Cassie has had laminitis a few times and I knew with her weight this was always a time bomb waiting to go off. She weighed a massive 557 kg when we joined CARE – she should ideally be less than 500 kg given her size and breed.”

The CARE study is ceasing to recruit new members in July 2016 but will continue to collect information from existing members until December 2016.
Karen encourages all owners to take part in the CARE study and make use of the Weight Tracker:
“I really think taking part in the CARE study is a must for all owners! The study is also important to raise awareness about laminitis, which is sadly still too common.”
