Speaking Of Great Horse Tips...........

I thought I'd share a few of my own, well, those that I've learned from others and from experience...............

1) I scrub my water troughs with plain bleach and rinse well. When I refill, I pour a 1/2 cup to one cup of bleach into the water. It makes it only slightly chlorinated and retards the growth of algae and the horses drink it.

2) Now I know to use Walmart generic Metamucil (unflavored) instead of the expensive Sandclear to help prevent colick. Two tablespoons mixed with grain and a little corn oil twice a week.

3) Corn Oil, another good thing.
