The consigner who sold my two-year-old puts all her sales horses on Neigh-Lox. Why?
Consigners want their horses to look and feel great prior to and during the sale. Including Neigh-Lox at the rate of 4 oz per grain meal will buffer excess acid and coat the stomach, warding off the ulcers that may develop during this time period. Ulcers can lead to sour attitude and other health problems, such as periodic bouts with colic.
Sales prep is a stressful time, due to an increased daily intake of concentrates and longer periods of stall confinement. Shipping, too, and attending the sale is stressful and increases a horse’s risk for developing ulcers.
