    He never really seemed to care for the cool stance. I may try him back on healthy edge, alfalfa pellets, and some grass hay. Thank you all for your suggestions!

    Make that free choice grass hay. Or a slowfeeder net, even better. Key for ulcer prevention is never let the stomach go empty.

    Is he being treated for the ulcers or just trying to manage them by diet?
    I would be wondering why he continually suffers from them. Is he stressed for some reason, on some sort of meds like bute or naproxen? Has he been checked for encysted worms?

    I'm trying to prevent them from reoccuring. He is a completely different horse than he was when I first got him.

    Slow Feeding Horses on Paddock Paradise Tracks - Paddock Paradise Wiki

    Check out the different slowfeeder solutions on there.
    Horse eats little by little, doesn't go hungry, learns there's always something to nibble on, stresses much less, hay lasts longer.

    Got it!!
    Absolutely the best thing to do - prevention is always better than cure
    deserthorsewomans link is worth a look as little and often is the best way to feed horses and with those slowfeeders they can keep occupied all day, never have an empty stomach but not be overloaded either - which also has negatives
