    Yay!! I'm really glad to hear that he seems to be doing better.
    What was the trick?

    I have a 30 + year old pony that has had several episodes of acting like he was on the way out. I just kept on trying and he got better. I have to separate him out to feed him, but he is doing great. He even trots up to dinner.

    I don't know what did the trick Wallaby... I offered him basically every variation of food that I could every couple hours over the day... finally he decided he liked equine senior and oats, straight up :) He got some ulcerguard this morning...

    The weather has been up and down, maybe that has something to do with it... a couple of friends with senior horses said the same thing, Celeste, that they would just go off feed, then after a day or two decide they felt better...

    Either way, I'm happy to see him happy and eating... hope we keep on this path :)

    So glad things are leveling out! Does he have free choice salt? Sorry if this has been posted before but sometimes elders need that extra salt so they drink more...

    Glad he is eating better! It does sound like ulcers... You may want to consider long term ranitidine once he gets better with the omeprazole. Good Luck!
