There is actually some reasoning behind my madness. First, based on my reading it isn't uncommon to treat horses for ulcers after they have been treated for EPM. He has been on a gut supplement as a preventative measure since I started him on supplements (middle of last year). I think the stress of traveling to Florida was too much for him and it triggered a flair up of ulcers. Secondly, he has the majority of the symptoms. Changes in attitude, girthiness, and so on and so forth.
Current Stinker. So grumpy.
I feel so bad for him, he is terrible in the cross ties and his sweet attitude on the ground is gone. He is also super grouchy in his stall (kicking, lunging, trying to bite). He doesn't even want to be groomed and normally he loves it. I have gone over his back a million times to see if it is actually sore and he doesn't react to my hand, but the brush is another story. Right now the plan is to try a week of omeprazole and see if there is any change. Fingers crossed that it gets here soon.
Hopefully, we will be back to this soon.
In other news my jump saddle finally shipped. I should get it in the beginning of February. Hopefully I have all of this straightened out and can actually evaluate it durning the trial period. I am super excited for it, but I am also terrified that it isn't going to fit him.
