We lost our magnificent Homer on Wednesday.  After bravely fighting to recover from acute laminitis and significant rotation in all 4 feet in 2009, he developed colic on Wednesday and despite our best efforts, we had no choice but to release him from the pain he was in....

Homer is the reason The Laminitis Site website and forum exist.  We so nearly lost him to laminitis, and I resolved that I would learn all I could to try to prevent other horses and owners going through the pain and mistakes that we endured.  Because of Homer, there are horses around the world that have recovered from laminitis and are now back in work, horse owners who have learned how to recognise and deal with laminitis and endocrine disorders, vets and farriers who have benefited from the information on the website.  Homer was a huge part of our lives - we miss him so much, but he will live forever through The Laminitis Site, and in our hearts.
