Could it be from blister beetles in your hay?

Lol Drew, yes but she's not the only one, there's at least 1 other confirmed case at the barn and that horse hasn't been going out in the pasture, so it makes sense it would be in the hay. I have already had several friends tell me that's what this is, and they know because they've had the same experience in the past with their horses.

A big concern right now is that as many ulcers as are in her mouth, there may ALSO be some in her GI tract Might explain the off and on diarrhea she's had since these sores showed up...so now I have to keep a close eye on her for signs of colic, all because of this crappy hay grrrr!!!

Can you get a few bales of hay from somewhere else until you get this resolved? I know someone who had to buy just a few bales of hay until the barn got her horse the hay that it needed.

I already did, got some from a friend to put her on until this all gets sorted out. By the way, got a positive ID on it finally from Ohio State University...it's yellow foxtail!

Well new hay is on its way! (thank God!) unfortunately more and more horses at the barn are being discovered with these ulcers now from this hay...up to 5 that I know of so far. I am a bit peeved, feel like sending my vet bill and the $$ I've had to spend on buying my OWN hay in the meantime to the hay supplier!

Oh well, at least I got this figured out and saved some others on potentially high vet bills too!
