    Recently took ownership of a 16 year old gelding (Andalusian cross?) who was somewhat neglected by his ill owner. He was fed a flake of bermuda grass AM and PM, groomed occasionally, but never taken out to get proper exercise for about 5 years. Since I have taken ownership in December, we've...

    Hello! I don't often post in forums, but I am hoping someone can give me some advice. I have a very green 9 year old Oldenburg gelding that I bought in September. I took a risk and bought him because of his breeding, movement, potential and price. I knew I was rolling the dice. They claimed...

    Hey guys, I have a 11 year old (12 in April) 17.1hh dark bay ottb gelding. He raced in large races, mostly at Churchill Downs. He raced 43 starts with a total winnings of just under $16,000 up through the race at the age of 9. Since then, he has been a lesson horse until I purchased him in...

    I've noticed a lot of posts regarding unusual horse behavior, something I'm dealing with myself. However, it seems like a lot of the symptoms of a magnesium deficiencies and gastric or intestinal ulcers are similar. In my experience, vets want to jump into ulcer treatment. I had to conduct my...

    I have a mare that potentially has EMS and had an ulcer which I believe has reappeared due to symptoms. I treated her ulcer with ulcerguard at the preventative dose for a month thanks to a vet's mistake but then with ulcerguard at the treatment dose (same as gastroguard) for the full regime...

    I've had horses all my life. I've never had horses with ulcers nor knew anyone with horses..with ulcers. I have a 2 year old that at 5 months was weaned and the breeder told me that she had never ever had a foal take it as hard as she did. She had other foals around her but missed her mom. When...

    I have a new horse that I worry from my research may have equine recurrent uveitis, but I have never had personal experience with it (I am a vet tech but my tech experience is with cats and dogs). My equine vet is not coming out until next month and I am just looking for an experienced horse...

    Hi guys, I read a post on here about someone who's having a problem with a newly purchased horse. A lot of people are suggesting stomach ulcers, and there's a video mentioned a lot on the topic on palpating certain areas where ulcers could be present (and if so, the horse will show that they are...

    I have a horse that is young and got ulcers last year. I have some supplements I want to give him and am wondering what is the best type of feed to give him? I was told sweet feeds are not good for ulcers. I currently have co-op type horse feed (some molasses not much) - is this ok? He...
