Mare Magic vs. SmartCalm
I'm considering getting one of these two for Abby, but I would like opinions on which one.
I plan to start her on UGard soon to prevent her ulcers from coming back and figure Mare Magic or SmartCalm would help her be less anxious, which would help the anti-ulcer cause. Her personality is also the definition of "mare-ish." I love me some mares and some attitude, but sometimes she's just a total jerk about it.
Back on topic: I got 3 small smartpak samples of SmartCalm powder. I finally gave it to her today to see if she'd eat it. It smells like that blueberry muffin batter powder that comes in boxes at the grocery stores and I'm pretty sure she thought it was a treat from her reaction.
Does anyone have any experience with either of these?
ETA: I forgot to add that she isn't stalled, she is pasture kept and only gets 1lb of oats twice a day. When I called the vet in November because of her sudden personality change and not allowing me to touch her stomach and suggested ulcers, she said she wouldn't be surprised based on her personality more than anything. She's just kind of jumpy and spooky, but at the same time a total snot.
