Awesome conference, lots of new information.  Some of the best part for me was watching the wonderful expressions as people  saw and heard the latest thinking and research.

Sarah Braithwaite of Forageplus 
"Intelligent Nutrition".  That's Sarah and
her amazing horse Fari on the banner. 
Sarah Braithwaite of Forageplus in the UK joined us this year.  Sarah is one of those people who lights up the room when she enters and she has been a driving force in advancing balanced nutrition and laminitis prevention in the UK.

From Forageplus News:
The Primary focus of the No Laminitis Conference is to prevent laminitis through disseminating information that can help metabolic and endocrinopathic horses.  ECIR is committed to providing high-quality information, with scientific backing and real-life experience.
For a great summary of facts, signs and symptoms and diagnosing Insulin Resistance (IR) and Cushing's disease (PPID) see Sarah's latest news update.

Did I hear hints of a NO Laminitis! UK conference happening next year?

Many thanks to all the organizers, volunteers and helpers at the conference, and especially to those who kept the home fires burning at the ECIR online group to make sure no new members needing help were left behind over the weekend.

The conference attendees were wonderful - it's these folks who will be carrying on the grass roots and "boots on the ground" traditions begun on ECIR by founder Robin Siskel and Elenor Kellon, VMD, supported by science-verified information.

More photos on the ECIR Facebook page plus watch for information on when and where the conference proceedings will be available.  And keep an eye on NO Laminitis! for information on the next conference.

Warm regards,
