  1. Sampson's first dressage show!

    Lovely guy- job well done on your part I so enjoy hearing these success stories and seeing a beautiful out come- stay the course and I think you guys have a beautiful future Best wishes-
  2. Dressage pictures from today!

    What a LOVELY pair!! Incredible mover and your seat it great- my one suggestion would be to open up your chest just a hair, which will bring the shoulders up and back which will allow the elbow to come back by your side a little more. Looks like you have done a wonderful job- keep us posted on the progress :-)

  6. Ulcer questions??

    Hello- I currently have a 16 year old TB that is ridden five days a week with me schooling 2nd Level dressage on him. He has always been considered "girthy" over the years but never anything too bad. He has also always tended to 'internalize' things going on around him but also, nothing appeared too bad. Several weeks ago - the help in the barn changed over and things began to change in the barn (patterns and techniques changed)- horses started to become more anxious and aggressive at times and even nervous. So- about a week ago- I noticed my guy did not eat his morning food?? So we looked him over, checked the stall - everything seemed fine. He went out, and grazed as normal and we watched him drink, etc. He came in that evening and same thing - no eating of grain, but ate every bit of his Timothy Hay. Following day - we had the vet out and he was diagnosed with an ulcer. We put him on Gastrogard that day and he has been on it for 5 days. My concern is: when should I be seeing the appetite return?? He still eats grass, hay, and carrots, but has no interest in the grain. We offered (per the vet) bran mash, and then feed with not molasses, but still not interest. So can anyone shed some light on what I should expect with the Gastrogard and the appetite?? The answers from the vet vary so I am looking for first hand experience please! Thank you for your time and wisdom! [ 11-17-2005, 08:47 AM: Message edited by: deblossio2 ]
