Weaving in horses is generally a habit of moving back and forth on it’s forelegs causing it to sway and moving their head back and forth. In some cases it’s caused by a lack of exercise, foraging or socialization, but in other cases it may be a sign of discomfort. We received the following note from Mary regarding a mare named, Scarlett who she said was always a nervous mare and a weaver.
I want to thank you for this amazing product! I have been using on my nervous mare who has ulcers and is a weaver. I have to say after just a week, she has almost quit doing it completely! She is much more calm and happy. My yearling was colicky a couple weeks ago, so I gave this to him as well and it helped a lot. I will continue to keep my horses on it.

I started using GastroElm Plus about two-and-a-half to three months ago. My young horse was pissy, would ring his tail when riding and even offer a buck if I got my heels into his sides. I was wondering what the heck I had bought to make a barrel horse. But then, I saw GastroElm on Facebook.
I was about to go to the omeprazole but that was so expensive at $35 a tube and for extreme results you have to give it for 30 days. That is way over my budget. So, I tried GastroElm Plus instead. Within the first week I noticed a difference. He was riding more quiet & committal was not switching as bad and he didn’t get all huffy puffy when I asked him to try something different in our training process.
Everyone who knows this horse from before I bought him cannot believe the horse he has turned out to be. I owe it all to Gastroelm. He has become my friend and gives his heart at everything he does now instead of worrying over how much he hurts. No, I did not have him scoped for ulcers but I definitely believe that was his problem. I have never seen a horse turn around so fast in attitude and performance.
This is a great example of a horse putting weight back on after using GastroElm Plus. Once they start feeling better and eating normally, everything else falls into place. We received this message from Michele about two months after she started using GastroElm Plus.
This is Q. I rescued her about 8 months ago. She was 18 years old and had severe ulcers. She wouldn’t eat anything that I purchased. When I found GastroElm Plus, I started her on it morning and night. For the first 2 weeks I mixed the product with aloe juice and syringed it into her to make sure it coated her well then I started just adding the dry powder to her feedings. Within 3 days of giving this product, Q started eating all her hay and grain. As you can tell she is gaining weight great. I was skeptical when ordering it but this product is absolutely worth it’s weight in gold. I am keeping Q on it from now on. Thank you for this product!
PS. Here is Q after using GastroElm Plus.
A few months ago I was considering how I was, once again, going to have to purchase expensive ulcer medicine for my two thoroughbreds. While I was considering how much it would be, a GastroElm Plus ad popped up on my Facebook page. I scanned the comments and figured it was worth a shot (afterall it was much more cost effective). I had no idea I was getting a product that within 24 hours I would begin to see subtle changes in my horses and within 3 days they were completely back to normal. I was shocked.
At about the same time I was seeing these changes in my horses at home, we had one of our therapeutic riding horses get diagnosed with ulcers. As a small non profit ulcer treatment is quite costly for our program, I immediately ordered GastroElm Plus for our girl. After a month on it our vet came out yesterday to check her and she had no signs of ulcers. At this point we’re putting several of our program horses on this product because it clearly makes them more comfortable and gets rid of ulcers. However, it’s not just for ulcers, it has another added bonus, our program recently brought in a horse that had been severely malnourished, when I asked the vet what we could give him to get the most weight on the quickest, she immediately responded with “give him that Slippery Elm stuff to aid with digestive absorption”. Our program is so grateful to have come across this product, I’ve never used something that so dramatically makes a change in the treatment of ulcers.
Thank you so much! I hope you have a great week.

Thank goodness I found GastroElm Plus. I was at my wits end with my granddaughter’s barrel horse, Waylon. A beautiful gelding but with the ulcers and stomach concerns it was alarming to us that he would be fine one day and terrible the next. We made countless attempts trying different things but I prefer to try and stay as natural as possible. When I discovered GastroElm Plus, I was hopeful we found a solution.
We noticed a change within a day of starting him on it. The first two days, much to our surprise he ate and finished his bucket of feed. This alone was such an accomplishment considering prior to using the Gastro Elm Plus we were at the point of hand feeding him and forcing him to finish. Within a two week time frame he was back to his spunky self and working good again. His shiny coat has been an added bonus!
I’ve recently started my other gelding who is slightly older on it and couldn’t be happier with the results.
