    I have an 11 year old Appaloosa gelding.. I’ve owned him for going on two years, he’s always been a character, and by character I mean totally grumpy borderline aggressive, even sometimes to the point it’s dangerous to deal with him on the ground, I can’t let anyone else around him as he is so...

    Hey everyone! I have a gelding that I sold, then had to buy back because he wasn't getting fed. He lost about 250 pounds in about 2 months. I've had him back since September and ever since I've got him back he's had ulcers. I've never had a horse with ulcers so I have no experience with them...

    Alright, need input on anxiety management (long post). My 7 year old Morab was just diagnosed with anxiety induced ulcers. I've owned her for one year; when I bought her she was kept in a tiny paddock, ridden (extremely poorly) down local roads, and fed 6-8 pounds of sweet feed a day. She is...

    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...

    There I am again, same case, different day. It's been two years and we still haven't found the answer. It's been 8 (now on the 9th) vets, an osteopath, a kinesiotherapist, three farriers, a clinic, an acupuncturist, a craniosacraltherapist, a herbalist and a massage therapist. You don't want to...

    My horse is an EXTREMELY picky eater and I am at my wits end trying to get her to eat powdered treatments for both hindgut and gastric ulcers (shes an ex-racehorse). She will put the food and powder in her mouth but spit it back out again. She hates the taste so much she will only eat a tiny...

    Help everyone! I need some advice. Last week I moved my 21 year old Arab gelding to a new boarding facility where he has a stall and a large paddock with three feedings a day, hay in AM & PM, stable mix pellets at lunch. He was at his last boarding facility for eight years and was in a 12x14...

    So my thoroughbred mare that I've owned for 3 years now, Grace, has been acting weird for the past two months. She's normally very energetic under saddle, a good listener, confident in herself, and moves off my leg very well. Lately she's been very different. Every year she takes the winter off...

    Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and desperately hoping someone can point me in the right direction. My mare is a turd. She is a 13 year old mustang. My trainer knows her previous two owners, the first of which had her giving trail rides and lessons to kids, basically, behaving herself. The...

    Looking for a supplement to put my ottb on for his ulcers. Currently treating him for ulcers but looking for a daily supplement to hopefully prevent creation of future ulcers. There are so many gut health products on the market I am having trouble choosing one. I am leaning towards biotic 8 from...

We are just looking for experiences or someone who may know a thing or two so we have more info when the vet comes** We have a 6 year Quarter horse mare who started cribbing when she was 3 or 4. We keep them stalled...

    Yesterday afternoon, Dawn was acting odd - stretching, not eating, very lethargic, and kind of 'bobbling' with her hind legs (resting one and then the other repeatedly) - so we called the vet out. The vet diagnosed Dawn with severe (grade 3 or 4) gastric ulcers, which explains a lot of things...

    Hey everyone, I have not posted on here in what seems like forever! Ive been struggling with my mare for the past three months. When i first bought her she had some quirks, kind of girthy, wouldn't stand to be mounted, pushy, all things i could easily fix and got better over time but then we...

    Exactly a month ago, my neighbors opened a new boarding facility that my trainer is managing and offered to help me out while I am at school by keeping him there to keep the first boarder horse they had in there company (she also loves my gelding and really wants to ride him while I'm away). The...

    I recently started treating my horse for ulcers. Before she started showing symptoms I was planning to trailering her to the tack shop Saturday to try on saddles. I know ulcers are caused from stress among other things and trailering can be quite stressful on a horse. She will be about a...

    So I'm not sure if anyone remembers the thread I made a couple months ago, but basically I have an OTTB who is an incredibly hard keeper and has recurring ulcers, and was in a pretty bad situation with a boarding barn where he was getting barely any hay. I finally moved him back in July to a...
