Feed manufacturers Spillers has donated £12,000 to the Laminitis Trust, to help fund important research into laminitis.
The money was raised by a special campaign run by Spillers, where the company donated 20p to the charity from every bag of Happy Hoof sold during April and May.
The Laminitis Trust, founded in 1998, is the only registered charity dedicated to supporting research into equine laminitis.
“The Laminitis Trust is at the forefront of essential work to discover the causes of this painful and debilitating condition and we are proud to be able to support their endeavours,” Clare Barfoot of Spillers said.
Robert Eustace, founder of the Laminitis Trust added: “We are extremely grateful to Spillers for this generous donation. All the money will be used to help fund our laminitis research projects. Horse owners should select feeds carrying the Laminitis Trust feed approval mark logo to help them keep their animals at the correct body weight and reduce the risk of laminitis.”
