Horse owners!! Question...
Im sorry im writing on here i knows its a dog forum! But i post on some horse forums and no one ever replies to my posts! so heres a question ive been reading up on race horses and i read that 80% of them have stomach ulcers! so was curious on how much it is for a vet to check them for ulcers! also i wanted to start feeding her grain but how much should i start? how many times a day? and what kind?! i also have another problem. when i ride her she does awesome! but when we head back to her new stable area she will not go in the gate! i used spurs.. no spurs.. my boots and regular shoes and she will not go thru the gate! she just backs up ill make her turn around and walk the way she wants and i turn her and yet she still doesnt go thru she will literally walk backwards! lol its kind of hard for me to jump off and get back on because her back is 6 foot off the ground and im only 5 foot so i need to use a barrel to get on. ( yes i know thats a little bit of a problem ) and since shes a little under weight... should i not be riding her? ive been told its not good but just lunging her around she doesnt get enough exercise! when i take her out walking around she wants to trot around and she literally wants to just trot or run when im ridding her she has so much energy.anyways sorry to bug but i need some info. non of my family has owned horses so they have no idea..
