The pellets apparently taste good too. Abby likes them a lot. I got her pellets. She's not exactly hot, but she's anxious and uptight. She had ulcers in December too, so I'm hoping it'll calm her down, hence more ulcer prevention (she's being started on an ulcer supplement too).
I've heard good things about MareMagic too. If the SmartCalm doesn't work on Abby, I'm going to try MareMagic. You can use it on geldings too.
I've never heard of Solace or Chill, so I have no advice on those.
You may want to try the U-Guard for your horses ulcer, but the great news about it, was when I was recommended by my friend to try the product (which he is a throughbred trainer for the last 40 years) he told me that it not only will take care of the ulcer, but will also calm the horse and prevent future ulcers as well. My friend is a great fan of the product. And sure enough, it really worked.
