Re: FLAIR Strips
The flair strips are just like what the football players use on their noses
to keep their nostrils open. The people ones are called "Breath Right"
nasal strips. My husband uses them for his snoring. The Flair strips are
so new that the endurance world probably doesnt know about them YET :-) I
was wondering when someone might inquire about trying them. I dont see
anything wrong with using them, so far. They arent any different than using
splint boots, bridles or a crupper or carbo charge for that matter. mmmmmmm
food for thought. gesa n clovis(you'd probably put it on wrong and I
wouldnt be able to breath!)
