Do you think its a bad idea to give a horse mineral oil every day?  My friend has a horse who colicked once and now thinks she has to do this to prevent it again.  I think she is doing harm.

Some common symptoms of ulcers are picky eaters, poor condition (thin), & bad attitude.  Very common in race horses or performance horses especially.  Also horses not fed on a regular schedule or those kept in a stall most of the time.  Horses under stress are especially at risk.

As far as mineral oil every day doing harm, I really doubt it would. I had one who couldn't keep weight on and the vet had me feeding her corn oil and gradually got up to 1 cup of it per day.
