results from one day of testing on one of my horses, last April.  These 
results are from the on-site testing thru the Pride Project that Dr. 
Fleming does.  This was without any carbo-charge.

Normal rates can vary quite a bit depending upon if you are doing on-site 
testing, lab-testing, and by individual horse.  Typically my horses are in 
the 80-90ish range, tho that can vary considerably. The goal is to keep 
them constant.  I can keep Weaver's glucose levels constant without any 
carbo charge.  Rocky takes a little more tweaking, but the end result is 
worth it :+).  I haven't put any of Rocky's results up yet.  I've got test 
results on him from 5 days, 4 days, 3 days, and 2-day rides in the last 
year.  I think he's probably one of the most poked endurance horses 
ever!  (but he's happy to donate!)  :+D

Happy Trails,
