    Gastric Ulcers- desperate!

    I would agree re getting him checked out for pain elsewhere as this is what is going on with my boy at the moment. Like you, I have ultra ulcer-friendly management, did a course of gastro guard and all seemed fine but they are now back and making him almost unrideable :( My vet advised that...

    If your garden backed onto grazing land...

    Would you expect the owners of the land to ensure horses couldn't eat anything in your garden - ie back fence it so horses can't get near? Just curious really as had a bit of a run in with the people whose garden backs onto our field this morning as my horses have eaten their precious tree...

    How do i make the pony eat?!??!!
