Kicking and rolling. Not colic.

So my sis has been asking about her mare, who has been kicking her stomache and rolling. And when she eats its almost like she's choking. Sis got some pills from the vet to treat the mare for stress induced ulcers (the stress coming from the gelding of the herd, with a stallion mentality)
The mare has been on the meds for about a month I think. And now my paint filly is displaying the same symptoms, this is the mare's younger sister. And the mare has shown no difference.

Any ideas as to whats going on? Parasites maybe?? They are all UTD on deworming. And my QH mare is acting fine, but she may be less effected if its the gelding cause she's more laid back and less apt to get stressed.

It is not colic, but i'm wondering if its some parasite or something that the dewormers don't get rid of.

Ages, if ya need it, Gelding 5 (April baby), Paint mare 3(August baby), QH mare 3 (January baby) Paint filly 2 (September baby)
Thanks in advanced

Well colic is a general term really. So most stomach digestive and intestinal issue can be called Collic. It's possible that it's an impaction, possible from swallowing sand with grain or hay. Also, is your hay free of mold and blister bettles. Just some thoughts

The mare has been on meds for a month? No change? How is their manure? Are they on psyllium?
