trailering a horse with ulcers?
I've decided that I'm going to move Bella(my OTTB mare) with my riding instructor for a month so that i can get Bella back in shape(mentally and physically) with the use of an indoor and my instructor there to help me every time i ride her. We have changed her diet to TC senior, alfalfa pellets and rice bran and as close to 24/7 hay as we can do(she's always been out 24/7) I give her rantidine, and which when i do it twice a day it makes a huge difference in her behavior(although last week i had so much grooming to do at work i could only give it once a day and she got pretty cranky again) I got 4 tubes of gastrogard which would be 5 days worth and her next smartpaks will have U-gard in it.I have talked to my instructor(who is the one who will be feeding her) and she will makes sure that she has hay 24/7 and she will feed her as i ask her to, she will be in a stall when the weather is bad and at night for the first few nights(not sure how she will respond to electric fence so want to make sure she is secure when no one is there).
Not sure if i left anything out, but can anyone give me any suggestions? she also said she would give the rantidine 2-3x a day if i want her to
