Back in May 2012, the Animal Health Foundation's Dr Don Walsh worked on a special project with the website and EQUUS Magazine. They created a one-hour video slide lecture, and hosted it as "webinar", or online real-time event, on the dangers of spring laminitis. Thousand of people registered to attend.
