[RC] Gastric Ulcer Study

On Behalf Of Michele Roush Shaw

I would like to publickly thank Dr. Barney and Linda Fleming for all their
time and effort in putting together their tour around the country doing
endoscopy on our horses to look for gastric ulcers. It seems to me to be a
bit of a thankless job, and a lot of driving!

Thank you, also, to the people who participated and had their horses scoped.
Kudos to you for wanting to know more about what goes on inside your horses.
I would like to add that there is no shame or embarrassment involved in
learning that your horse has ulcers, and that it should not be construed as
a reflection upon you as a horse manager. The shame should come from
sticking your head in the sand and not wanting to know whether your horse
has ulcers or not.

I would encourage people to take advantage of the opportunity to look at
your horse's stomach, should that opportunity arise. It is better to make
informed decisions.
