Ok, that got my attention
Since I started feeding my ulcer-prone Arab well soaked timothy/alfalfa cubes, I was able to take him of Ranitidine in the winter.
He only has flareups in the winter after the grass dies off. He's gets daily turnout on 22 acres but by this time of year there's not much green out there
It's the calcium carbonate in the alfalfa that helps - think TUMS
Even with four molars missing the Old Curdmudgeon (coming 26) could handle a banana or two.
One a day, every couple days? "How'd you do that"?
