    I have never had a horse with ulcers so I don't really know what to look for per say but moving her was really hard on her. She acts more comfortable in her stall then pasture cause in her pasture she only stand by the gate and graze she won't venture out any. We put her in with our oldest gelding who loves her to death but she acts like she is scared to leave the gate. We walk her through the pasture everyday hoping she will adapt to it but so far she won't leave the gate

    Studies have shown that the only mineral horses will seek out if they are deficient is sodium.

    I have one of those horses who will chew wood if bored - along with her saddle, my clothing, or anything else within reach of her teeth. And she is out 24/7 - I could only imagine the destruction she would wreak on a stall!

    Well you seem to have figured out she is missing something in her diet, can you get a high quality free choice minerals?, if so, you can have it available to her at all times, and she will consume what she feels she needs...Ive seen horses lick the ground and eat rocks from missing stuff in thier diet, A horse that eats bark from certain trees is sometimes looking for something that he needs...
