DRIED CABBAGE & OAT FLOUR....
I can't begin to tell you how much support this woman has been, her name is Cynthia, here is her website, if you get time check it out, just click "ulcers" at the top of her page http://www.lunatunesfreestyles.com . I have chatted with her thru email, spoke with Cookie yesterday he said go with this, he said "never met a feed rep yet that would tell you all your horse needs is good hay and water" keep on the full dose until he is comfortable with the new diet. Cabbage has tons of nutrients, eg. Vit C, L-Glutimine both are healing to the stomach and gut. We can do this, I want my horse to be happy. I dried a full head and got about 3 cups, he only gets 1/4c twice a day, so it is not too bad, just time consuming. Have a great day, we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

Good Morning, I am feeling a bit better, I found an amazing website with some fabulous info on ulcer diets, I have been suffering from information overload, but I think I have finally sorted thru this and started Charlie on some new "healing foods" One item that is particularly healing is dried cabbage, which of course, can not be found in Canada, so I borrowed a dehydrator from a friend at work and I'm drying my own. Pumpkin seed is another good food as well as oat flour and rice bran. He is now off ALL of the grain feed that he was getting and he is slowly starting to eat his new stuff, as long as he keeps eating his hay we are good. He is a bit picky and doesn't except new readily... This will take time but I'm told that if I hang in, I will have a happier horse, that is my goal. Love and a vote Donna Lee

♥ I am off work this weekend. We pick up Whiskey today at 2pm. We will all feel so much better when he gets home. His eye needed to be doctored 2 times a day is why he stayed so long. I go to work before the sun comes up so I would have only been able to get it doctored 1 time a day. His final doctoring will be tomorrow. I do plan to ride Deacon at Lake Whitney tomorrow. I am hoping Lizzy will go so Rocket can go as well. I will phone vote everyone Sunday though so please vote each day and silent votes are so welcomed as well! Have a wonderful weekend <)__~

☆ As I have mentioned before, I have learned so much with Deacon and of course Whiskey & Rocket. Each horse has brought knowledge to me that has its own value. I think we all carry a special place for that 1st horse that is hard to describe ♥ the 1st year ½ I went trail riding, I experienced penning & cutting cows but my favorite has always been trail riding. Have a great Thursday ~Whinny’s & hugs ☆

♡ When I got Deacon he had previously pastured on Bill’s brothers property with 3 other horses. All 3 others horses were taken in to have sarcoid tumors removed. Deacon had a small knot on his left flank that I had Doc Edward’s check out. He said to leave it alone until it started to change or he could remove for cosmetic reasons if I wanted. I choose to wait. I don’t show my horses and I wasn’t interested giving Deacon Surgery after just newly purchasing him. It didn’t bother him either. Several years ago I did have it removed. It started to change. Doc had learned how to also prevent future ones as well. This method is to take a small piece of the tumor and put it in the neck area. You can’t even tell where the cut on his flank was now. In his knot he actually had 2 small tumors in it.
Equine Sarcoid:

Sarcoid tumors are the most common skin tumor in horses. These tumors are unique in that they are the product of infection with Bovine Papilloma Virus (BPV), which is probably transmitted by flies. Many horses can be infected with this virus, but no two horses will express it in the same way. Tumor appearance and size can vary greatly between horses, and even on the same horse; similarly, response to different treatments can be highly variable. Tumors can originate at the site of a wound or tack rub, and originally present as a wound that isn't healing; on the lower limbs, they also are often mistaken for proud flesh. Though sarcoids are the most common skin tumor of horses, they are also one of the most misunderstood maladies of horses.
Here is a hug & a Wednesday vote :)

About Prince Teton
Breeder Rodney Nardelli must have smiled when he first saw the handsome little colt born to his mare. I like to imagine the little guy bouncing and bucking around his mama, then pausing to check out this new creature that leans over his stall door. He would have looked much like he does today, strikingly handsome, with loads of presence, the kind that makes passersby stop, back up, and have a second look. Nardelli chose a name that was a neat combination of his sire, Teton Forest, and dam, Princess Sequoya, and fit the little horse perfectly. Prince Teton. Prince Teton grew to a whopping 16.1 hands high, but the way he carries himself makes him seem like 17 hands at least. At two, this horse went into racing training and, with the right jockey, he could win anything. He sustained a sesamoid injury which put him off the track for a while, but before long he was back in the winner’s circle. In all, He won 12 out of 27 races and placed second or third in quite a few of the 15 he didn’t win. He won about 150,000 dollars. When he was six years old, his trainer retired him and put him up for sale. A man in Crittenden, KY bought him, seeing his win history and hoping to put him on the track again. Here was Prince Teton’s disaster. This man was a scrooge, caring only for money and nothing else. Prince Teton suffered. He lost weight, and his beautiful black hair faded to a pale bay. He lived in this awful barn for a year and a half. Meanwhile, my horses were coming along nicely, and I was looking for a new challenge.

About Prince Teton 2
I got the idea to buy an OTTB (off the track Thoroughbred) and train him for eventing or show jumping. I discovered Canter USA. I was scrolling through the ads, looking at so many beautiful horses, but none of them really “clicked” with me. I absentmindedly scrolled past the ad for Prince Teton that his former trainer had posted. Then, like many people had already done, I snapped to attention and scrolled back. My mouth dropped open. Here was a beautiful, handsome horse, dark brown, almost black, his awesome tail literally dragging on the ground. He was well filled out, well-muscled, and stood erect and proud, gazing into the horizon. His eye had a soft, kind look to it. I checked his pedigree. Impressive as well. I took down the number, even though the ad was old, and I didn’t think I could ever get my hands on such a horse anyway. I called his trainer, and he gave me Teton’s new owner’s number, saying that he thought the horse was for sale again. I contacted the owner, and we arranged for me to go see him. At the sight of Prince Teton, I deflated. His ribs were jutting out from his sides, his color was pitiful, and he had scratches all over his body. His eyes were dull and lifeless. I could have cried. I didn’t want to take on a horse like that, I wanted to start training right away, but I knew this horse desperately needed help, and I knew what the right thing was to do. I took Prince Teton home. I kept him away from my other horses until he was wormed and pronounced disease free. Then I let him out with my mares. They bonded right away and he became the lead stallion. I began to play vet right away. A trip to the real vet revealed that he had a mild urine infection due to dehydration and some skin problems, and he was treated for that. I took home lots of supplements and advice. I gave him a bath. I fed him sweet feed packed with supplements every day. Prince Teton responded by getting worse. I began to despair. He was losing his hair, his weight was going down even more, and he seemed even more depressed. I continued to fight for his life. Finally, after almost two months, he began to respond. His hair grew back to a dull black, but at least it was black. Slowly, slowly, his ribs covered up.

About Prince Teton 3
The most encouraging thing was the spirit he regained. We bonded quickly, and he began a daily routine of galloping madly around the pasture, bucking and sending huge chunks of dirt flying from beneath his pounding hooves. His eyes once again, had the peaceful, kind glow. The first time I rode him he proceeded to run away with me, but I persevered, and he is learning to slow down. He does well over ground poles and soon I will start him over jumps. He still has some minor skin issues, which are slowly clearing up, and he has bouts of colic which keep him on digestive supplements. But he is doing so much better than he was a year ago! The bond between us is very strong, and my Teton Boy would do anything for me, and I for him. He wants so much to please. He would probably try to climb a tree if I asked him to. He’s very intelligent, and when I introduce new concepts to him, he figures them out very quickly. It does me good to see him heartily eating his feed or strutting around in the pasture like royalty because I know what he’s been through and how he can now enjoy a good quality of life. He has some fears that I can only guess why he’s afraid of them, like hay racks and pliers. He is learning to face those fears, because in my barn they are only tools, and not something to be afraid of. I think Teton has a bright future ahead of him. He has a good jumping build and he obviously has natural talent because whenever he gets the urge he hops over his pasture fence and tries to find me. Once he starts jumping, I will find a rider for him and his first competition will be the Thoroughbred horse show in Lexington, KY, designed especially to start the OTTB in his new career. I’d like to encourage anyone looking for a new horse to find one who needs help. There are too many out there who need help and don’t get it. So many horses live their lives out in terror and hunger. As equestrians, we need to do all we can to help our companions.
