Digestive ulcers are very common in horses. They may result from various factors such as stress and changes to feed and diet. Normally, a horse produces a substantial amount of acid to digest the food that it eats. Horses eat grass most of the day when they are found in the wild; but if domesticated their meals are often larger and less frequent. The normal acid production continues with less food to act as a buffer. This increases the amount of acid the stomach lining is exposed to. This can lead to ulceration.
