If you are going to do this, use BIG stones--too big for the horse to
actually bite. Fractured teeth from accidentally chomping down on small
stones can be a real hazard, and can lead to either a lifelong maintenance
problem or a shortened lifespan or both. And I'd think the small stones
would be even more of a problem in wet, sloppy feeds than in dry feeds.
