My horse is ulcer prone and is somewhat high strung. He hasn’t had ulcers in many years but what can I do to prevent them from returning?

Lucerne/alfalfa is very good for ulcers provided it doesn't heat up the horse... you can also put the horse on ulcer meds which will help control them. If the horse has to be moved or is put in a stressful situation then ulcers are more likely to occur. So just keep that in mind when treating them 😊
