Re: [RC] AERC drug policy - C. Eyler

Just looked again at the AERC drug policy online, and only the injectable administration of SeE is prohibited -- and that's because of another substance in the injectable form.

I understand this concept and agree with the AERC policy.  However, I think
this is a special case.  I live in Virginia and our soil here is extremely
low in selenium (as is Maryland).  We only supplement Se to keep the horse's
levels normal - the same as horses who live in areas where there is
sufficient Se in the soil so they don't need supplementation.  I don't
believe this is the same as supplementing with something like Yucca or MSM.
And then there's Adequan, and it's legal.
