Copied and pasted from my first post coz im lazy lol-
He gets fed wheaten hay (I feed by weight but it's usually 4-6 biscuits a day depending on size/quality, we worked it out to roughly 13-15kg of hay a day), and one hard feed a day (2 scoops wheaten chaff, one scoop bran, and one scoop of pellets, usually a 'Calm Performer / Cool Horse and Pony' type mix). Also goes out to graze 2-3 times a week.

I do add supplements- biotin for his hooves, he's getting preddy granules at the moment, and im expecting some garlic/rosehips/seaweed this week in the mail.

Sorry forgot you had posted that...

Do youhave a link to the Cool Performer pellets?? This is tough because your ingredients over there are all called different stuff

I have been called the NSC Nazi more then once ... I hate traditional feed methods of loading our horses up on grains and junk food :)

Call your feed manufacturer and find out if there is any grain in the pellets and supplements you are giving him. If he does have ulcers, you need to make sure he's not getting any grain at all.

When I did the aloe vera and slippery elm bark it cost me about $20 a month.
