    When we put mare on ulcer meds, she was still not eating well (she would pick a bite or two of food, and maybe eat 1/4 of her daily hay intake) for about a week.

    Oh--I forgot her photos from last night.
    If I ever get her under saddle properly, she will be one heck if a horse.

    Yeah, I noticed improved attitude within a few days, but eating normally did take a little bit.

    I don't like doors like that. I want a very heavy, solid wood door of very heavy construction that fits tightly to the ground and can't be pushed outward(when closed, fits into a bracket that prevents the bottom from being pushed out, the latch near the top of the door, no matter how sturdy, isn't enough, there's got to be something at the bottom of the door to hold it close to the wall/stall front).

    My mare got her legs caught in that sort of thing when she was rolling and got very badly injured. Punched right through it and that wire very badly injured her legs.

    And I have seen other similar accidents with other horses. They get a leg stuck in that wire, or they get a leg caught around the frame of the door.

    Stall guards like this and other designs, like a chain or band, are all very dangerous because there's an open space at the bottom.

    They don't have any sense of 'gee, I better not roll in that spot', they don't learn from their 'mistakes'. They just lie down and roll where ever they roll.

    Drama llama is finally picking up her appetite again. Has finished her dinner two days in a row, and is eating most of her hay again. I have started her back on a very small amount of grain as a reward

    What did you end up treating with for ulcers?
