I don't have much faith in Ace. I had a donkey who was really bad about getting his feet done. Tried Ace and it dropped his inhibitions enough so that instead of trying to leave he was aiming killing blows. He meant business.

Many years ago when I was a teen my first horse was very ring sour when I got her. Old owner told me to give her Ace before I tried to run barrels. Same thing. She would rear to the point of nearly flipping herself. Without it she was just hot.

If you have to do it there are better drugs out there.

Acepromazine may or may not work. Personally I've never seen it work particularly well. Definitely ask your vet, I wouldn't take advice from people on a forum for this primarily, it would only help guide me when I go to ask a vet.

How about Quietex? Has anyone tried it? How well does it work?
