Ulcer Relief for Spartan

Where to begin….I purchased Spartan as a 3-month-old in the year of 2011 and he came to live with me a 5 months old.  I have done all the training and care for Spartan.  I have always instilled a low grain/high fiber diet, access to grass or hay 24/7 and tons of turn out.  I also attempt to keep stress levels down in all my horse’s lives. One would think I was doing everything right to prevent ulcers.  At the age of 5 I started to trailer him more frequently for lessons and a few shows and by that fall he was exhibiting behavior issues.  Many said it was him just being five years old. However, my gut told me otherwise. I decided to scope him and found he had grade 2 ulcers.  Did the Ulcergard 30-day treatment, rescoped and he was healed.  Yipee right?  Well, we still experienced some behavioral issues that told me not all was well so I continued to look into it further.  We then treated for hind gut ulcers. With great success, he was finally feeling better. The behaviors went away and he was going great. It has now been 2.5 years of treating and re-treating for ulcer fair ups.  It was clear to me that no matter how much I tried to keep “stress” out of his life, he was prone to getting ulcers.  He has always been a super sensitive horse, reactive and over thinks everything. Over the last 2.5 years, I have spent $1000’s of dollars on every supplement that you could imagine. I decided that throwing all these ulcer treatments at him was just not going to do the trick. I had to get to the core of the issue  So I decided to do two things; 1. I took him off all his supplements and put him on the very basics, hay, grass, a very small amount of grain and a vitamin supplement called Equipride and 2. put him on CBD oil.  I decided on CBD oil for two reasons, to help with anxiety and inflammation.  Hope Botanicals CBD oil has been absolutely amazing.  The change in Spartan’s reactiveness is impressive, he finally seems at peace with himself and he is moving better than ever.  He has more articulation in his joints and is so much more focused in his work. His coat is amazing and he is the fattest he has ever been in his life.  Jenna has been so helpful and quick to answer all my questions and so supportive. I initially reached out to her months ago but my vets pooh-poohed the thought of CBD oil.  I regret that I didn’t try it sooner.  Thank you Jenna and Hope Botanicals for such a great product.   – Jody
