She'll get two sachets of AbPrazole Plus for 28 days, then one sachet for two weeks. It's not an American brand but, a fellow blogger, one of trainers barn girls & lots of Internet talk gave it a thumbs up. Certainly can't afford the 30ish $ a day of the American patented version for 30 days! She'll have been on the loading dose of Finish Lines U-7 supplement this coming weekend and will drop to maintenance. I will be changing the supplement to SmartGut as soon as I run out. The liquid U-7 isn't as doable come winter and I've heard the powder version isn't one most horses like.
I'm sure hoping it does the trick for her, she was a very cranky monkey earlier today. I'm guessing yesterday's stress irritated her gut. If it is truly ulcers we should hopefully see a distinct difference overall. If it's not, sadly she and I quite probably won't work. She's so awesome on the ground, but I want/need to ride.
I'm also thinking the saddle I'm using isn't going to work for Grace. It's designed for a rounder, low whithered horse aka Camryn. I'd hoped once she got her weight up it would work. And while she's up to 950ish lbs, she's much more A-framed than a Haflinger for sure. I do have another older treeless Barefoot Arizona that I plan to try next. I don't plan to even contemplate a new saddle for her till I know she's staying however.
Anyone looking to buy a gorgeous barely used Sensation Western Sport? It's an awesome, well made saddle and soooo comfy!
Lincoln is loving Pre-pre school, I asked if he had fun when I picked him up today. He said "NO", of course this concerned me, until I asked why it wasn't fun. He told me "because you picked me up!" He'd wanted to stay forever he said. He's a hoot!
