    We have people at the barn where I board who blanket early in the year just because they don't want to deal with a dirty horse when they come up to ride. That's a personal choice that I wouldn't...

    Personally, I don't think there is anything. You do have to be sure that he is cured and not just asymptomatic - that will mean rescoping to make sure the ulcers are gone. Then the best thing is to...

    horsegirl, I think what many of us are saying is that no one has come up anything that will likely cure the ulcers other than Gastrogard. The reason is that they have buffered it in a way that it...

    The vet I talked to wasn't basing his recommendation on the 4 pony experience. He was basing it on the science behind prostaglandin production. I didn't get the impression that they considered it any...

    My TB's not lazy or too sensible sometimes, but you can't find an easier keeper. She thrives on hay and grass and the handful of grain that she only gets because I mix in flaxseed and Lubrisyn. She...

    I just took a look at the schedule for this years Maryland Expo and this doctor will be there - he lists ulcers as an area of interest. I'm not sure I'll be going because I am soon to be horseless...

    I saw Dr. McKenzie at the Maryland Horse Expo last year and asked him about the issue of corn oil and inflammation and he said there was no evidence that he was aware of that oil had any connection...

    I don't buy that modern TBs have bad feet or don't grow a good coat. Some grow a different coat - it is not necesarily less warm. My TB and the one we half lease are the only two horses in the...

    My understanding is to give them the very least amount of grain that you can get by with - and most horses don't need as much as they get, if they have nutritious hay. At the time, Dr. McKenzie...

    Much of my info on ulcers came from Dr. Harold McKenzie at Morven. Dr. Murray there has done a great deal of research on ulcers. I do not know if Dr. Murray is still affiliated with Dupont or not. At...

    Add corn oil - it is one of the few things that has been shown to help with ulcers - even the lesions in the gut that you may not be able to see with a scope. If he'll eat hay with oil poured on it,...

    I can't say I know much, except that he sired my mare. I researched a bit a while back and traced him to Naylee Farm in West Virginia, but I just looked at the website and he has progeny there, but...

    Dinah-do - saw your post about Run Softly. I thought he was standing in WVA - did he die recently? He is my mare's sire - she will soon be re-homed on a farm as a brood mare for timber racers.

    I think part of the sweet feed reaction is based on our knowledge that sweets are bad for us so we assume. I'm sure that is what bothers me about them. I know I feel so much better when I cut back...

    My TB is a hay "ho" - she acts like it's candy and lives off it and grass and a handful of grain mixed with flax-based joint supps. What scares me is the shortage of hay - when hay is more...

    If the decision has been made that a horse or pony is not a candidate for surgery, then I would research where the closest place is for IVs and proper pain management. The percentages are so high...

    I think that educating ourselves about colic is the best thing we can do. There are some great articles on the different types of colic and which ones respond best to non-surgical and surgical...

    If you put the bedding in, will she remove it? I don't understand why she is even given the choice. I think it's great when boarders get a choice about the kind of bedding, but not if there is...

    Fortunately, you're got some reasons that are health issues and if she knows how to Google, she won't be able to argue. Too much garlic can be toxic - there are articles all over the internet about...

    I still don't understand why you are feeding this pony - is the vet telling you to give her mashes? If there is a blockage that is working its way through, the mash is not going to help - mash...

    Is there any way to get an IV in her - she needs fluids, fluids, fluids. And again, I would stop offering any food.

    So sorry to hear about this - colic scares me to death. I'm surprised the vet wants you to feed a horse who is colicking though. If it is am impaction, won't feeding make it worse? When my mare...

    Interesting site - also interesting that my vet is the one listed for Maryland. I just spoke to him Friday about my situation and asked about bute alternatives and any newer therapies. He didn't...

    There is a 6 yr. waiting list at Ryerss and the minimum age is 20. They do allow you to put your horse's name on the list at any time so it is not a bad idea to get on the waiting list if retirement...

    Timely thread for me. I am struggling with what is best for my mare. She is only 8 and full of life but has off and on lameness that keeps her from being a reliable mount. I know there are plenty of...
