Thanks all :)
If he's showing uncharacteristic behaviours then I agree with Sophia, get a vet. Aggression is often pain-related, at the very least a vet may be able to provide pain relief for him 😊
I would call a vet.
Hes a little overweight. Thanks I'll try that:) Any suggestions on why he won't walk if I try moving him to much he gets aggravated eg bitting his behaviour is very unlike him
Take him off the grass completely, give him ad lib soaked hay. Is he overweight?
No he told me a 1/2 weeks ago that he is on the verge of getting it so i should watch it incase he does. So he has been on a strict diet since.
Wait, does your farrier agree that it's laminitis?
