You say his teeth were done. Has the vet given him a once over? Could it be he has jaw pain or some other issue. The not grazing thing is a huge red flag to me.

Since he has been here he has been checked by my farrier, equine dentist and a chiropractor. I haven't had a vet do anything as I'd have to haul him 2 hours to the vet which is fine but I prefer to haul them there when I "have" to.
I have found nothing wrong with him. Because of the lack of grazing I had his teeth checked then also thought some form of jaw pain and called the chiropractor. No luck. He doesn't seem depressed, he is happy and interactive. Quite a character actually.

Hi I also have a 17hh TB and he as well is showing the same symptoms as the first few messages on here. he is only 5 yrs old and he came of the race track, I have tried every sweet feed under the sun and am hoping to keep him on triple 10, he as well needs to put weight on but eats soo slow and usually wont eat at all, however I was wondering how you dosed the walmart meds, I assume you purchased the Omerprazole pills... how many did you give your horse?
