    I've talked to the BO, these are the options.

    Cinny usually does fine with this current regime. The reason for the flare up was that we changed barns and dummy me didn't give him gastroguard during the change. He has only had this one flare up in 2 years. He shows, he trailers out to trails, he loves to be active and go places and never flares even without GG, so I thought he would be fine. I know now that with all that he does, changing barns is a big GG week from now on.

    I can't go to the barn every day, which is why he is at the barn he is at. I have friends that can look in on him. My usual day is spent with my autistic 3 year old by myself while my husband is gone 36-48 hours at a time and when he's home, is only home for about 10 hours and then he is gone again. I basically can go mon, wed, and fri mornings while Son is at his preschool and occasionally when hubby is home, but hubby likes family time. It is what it is.

    I also agree with the mag supplementation. With all the ca getting pumped into him it has probably thrown the balance off whack.
    Make sure you are feeding mag citrate, not mag oxide or any other form. The mag Citrate is the most bioavailable form. The only brand I've found is Rivas that does the citrate and its about $25 a month for the full dose.

    Then get enough nets to cover three days, including the day you can't go. Most importantly the night feedings. Keep in mind, the GG is just a band aid. It doesn't fix a darn thing....

    Cody Freaked when we moved barns and I was going to suggest that. Also the wind tends to "freak" some horses out.. and Lord knows we get that here in Nebraska lol.. I hope you can get it all worked out Cinny. I have to move barns here again in a month and I am not looking forward to my calm guy Spooking again.

    I've found MagRestoreŠ, also worth looking into. I give, at the moment, Remission, for other reasons, tho, it has probiotics and other vitamins/minerals added and, even tho its MagOx, seems to work.

    Went to the barn this morning and found Cin sunbathing in the turn out. I brought him in, gave him carrots and peppermints and a good grooming. He seemed a big more relaxed than he was even yesterday. Not himself, but not kicking and things for touching his legs, or jumping out of his skin when the cat comes in. I had his saddle out on a stand and it fell off and landed a few feet from his front legs and he just looked down and snorted. If that had happened only days ago he would have probably had a tizzy and busted the cross ties.

    I took him for a walk to the back near the trail head where I saw some grass cropping up and let him graze on the new sprouts. This seemed to ease him a bit too and I was able to tickle his belly and play with his ears like I used to do.

    I think he is on his way back to his normal self. I bet when the vet finally comes on Tuesday he won't find a thing wrong! But that would make me happy. I don't want to go ahead with the show next weekend unless the vet gives me the thumbs up.

    Today Cinny was about 95% himself, I feel like I can take a deep breath now. The vet was able to come today and did a blood draw but he is pretty sure it was magnesium deficiency as his symptoms were what he called "classic" for it. Plus it doesn't help that after almost a week of upping his Magnesium he is almost back to normal. He is going to wait for the blood draw results be be sure and to advise me on what else we need to do but he says what I am doing now seems to be working well.

    He watched Cin on the lunge and under saddle to see if he thought a rib was out or if he thought he might need any chiro (he's a chiro too) but he says he thinks Cin is good to go. Unless something dreadful shows up in the bloodwork, we have the green light to show this weekend with no restrictions.

    I am so relieved.
