I also rehabbed a gelding with a bow and it was not always fun! If you are allowed to walk her at all, sometimes hand grazing is the best. She gets a snack, stuff to look at, and is out of the “box” for a bit. We were lucky in that ours wasn’t too bad and we were able to walk the flat parts of the trails behind the barn, as long as he behaved! I put him on Quietex in about the 1 1/2 month mark as he just couldn’t control himself and his excitement. I only used half a scoop instead of the full scoop they recommend and it was enough to take the “edge” off without him being all dopey.
