Re: RC: Re: RE: When a horse "quits"

Hey Maggie, 
    All I can tell you is that on my first 50 at the Little Manistee last 
spring, it was the thought of that chilled bottle of chardonney in my cooler 
which carried me through those last 5 miles . . .<g>

 thinking of the myriads of our clients who feed upwards of 10# a day of
 sweet feed.  I am wondering if carbo charge type products are akin to us
 eating a Snickers bar to make it over the hump (?)...I am NOT advocating NO
 carbs for horses or people, heavens no!  But not all carbs are created
 equal....Frank is talking about complex carbs.  Simple carbs are another
 story.  I realize in competition next year, I will need to make sure I have
 adequate carbs for the long haul....but the RIGHT ones and the right amount
 are essential for me. No Snicker bar pick me ups for me, I am afraid!   I
 am in the process of educating myself and experimenting to find out what
 works for ME.  It won't work for everyone.  >>
