    Nikibella, if you are worried about the move, he'll pick up on that. Try to develop a positive feeling like it's "old hat".

    Glad to hear the move went smoothly! How is he settling in? (:

    I also wanted to comment in correspondence with some other posters here. I sometimes use Ulcer-Guard, just to avoid a hurting tummy. (:

    I'm in school now , going out to check on him in a couple hours. I have some ulcer guard that I could give him, how long should I keep him on it?

    I just got home from the barn and I'm going out in a little while again (don't ask -.-) and Simon was great :) him and his buddy are settled in perfectly, no pacing or upset tummies.

    Has anyone experienced deep mud at the entrance of an in/out stall? How did you deal with it ? The mud isn't wet or sticky but more spongy and it looks like it'll be sticky when it rains. Maybe put one of those thick black mats there ?

    Shovel the mudd and haul it away before you try putting anything there. Or else it won't work ;)

    Just got back from our second visit today and he was acting fine but he has loose stool, a little liquid like water that ran down his bum cheek then some 'cow patty'. Is that normal ?

    I would put on the ulcerguard until you are confident that he's settled and relaxed as a preventative. As far as the loose stool...not so normal. Not alarming though either if just a bit. My mare would get "looser than normal" stools when she was nervous/anxious such as with trailering. But she ended up with ulcers too and this could be an indicator that an issue may be starting. I would keep an eye on it. Also if loose stools keep up I would be sure the horse is hydrated with electrolytes. Dehydration colic can happen in winter as the horses are sometimes less inclined to drink with the cold. Soaked beet pulp can help with this in the winter and extra fiber help with warmth but I wouldn't add anything new in diet with the barn change too. Too many changes could spell more trouble than good. Probably better to go with electrolyte paste or something.

    Update: we are moving once again as the 'new' place is repulsive and unfit for horses so as much as it kills me to lose my long time trainer/friend/idol but hopefully she will accept the fact that I have to do what's best for my horse
