Ulcer prone horse freaking out when farting?
My barn owner asked me about this since I have done a lot of research on ulcers do to my mare and her problem with ulcers.
She has this 9 year old OTTB gelding, Ricky. He has ulcers but hasn't had a flare up in a while. She was telling me that recently when being ridden he will suddenly fart and the then go crazy and freak out, I've never seen him do it so I can't really give any specific details but she wanted to know if this could be related to an ulcer flare up or something else. Anyone have any ideas? She wants to start him on the ulc-r-aid that I have my horse on since she has seen such great results anyway but was just wondering if I or anyone in the internet world had any ideas lol,
