Re: [RC] Feeding before a ride - D'Arcy Demianoff-Thompson

This is quite an interesting synopsis Bruce.  And thank you.  It has helped to 
provide some good insight and understanding in the feeding process in general.  
On my last training ride, my ride partner commented, after we got back to the 
trailer, and my mare pooped.  "My God, I can't believe that mare still has any 
left in her after all that she left out there on the trail!"  I doubt that she 
eliminated 150 pounds worth but how would I know.  What it does tell me she 
barely wanted to eat.  Even after finishing 10 miles.  So, as I work her miles 
up it will be interesting to see at what mileage she decides to dive into the 
food.  :)
