Re: Various thoughts/recent posts
Yes, sometimes you get different advice from different people. Their
horses are also different. I'll try almost anything once if it sounds sane
and reasonable. Then I use what works for ME and MY HORSE. Works every
time! :) That's MY research. I have had people disagree with me over
various practices...ie. well, research shows such and such and so that's
hogwash or whatever....if something works for me or if I have seen it work
for someone else, then I am a believer. Never say never. There are some
things people do that makes me cringe...but it works for them. Doesn't
mean I have to try it. And vice versa. Our nutritionist aka sales rep
REALLY disagrees strongly with me over the amount of SE and E that I
supplement. If I would just feed their feed in correct amounts (or buy an
additional expensive supplement) I wouldn't NEED to supplement ANYTHING.
But I also feed beet pulp and oil. My horses look great. They don't NEED
10 # of grain a day either! So.... keep trucking on, asking lots of
questions, try a few things (even it sounds weird) and use what works for
you! P.S. When my husband first wanted to use "quench" bottles, I wasn't
really enthused....too messy (might get too wet) and sponges were a better
way to go. Now I love them (quench bottles that is).
