Mist came to us with EMS in July 2019, having suffered a bout of laminitis the year before. As you can see from the first image, Mist had quite a big, hard crest with fat pads that covered his shoulders and bum. His Mum did a great job of keeping Mist sound under difficult circumstances, so we've been happy to help aid his recovery.
He is kept in Herd 3 with his friend Luna (same owner), on a non grass track system with access to 24/7 adlib meadow hay. As you can see, he's lost his fatty areas and has definitely become track fit. Mist and Luna are still in retirement with us.
Mist was very attached to Luna when they first arrived together and would constantly follow her around and put himself in between her and other horses in the herd. After being in a herd environment since their arrival with us last year, Mist now feels confident enough to walk off by himself or surround himself with other members of the herd to sleep, eat or play.
