    It actually is, but that would be in large doses. We use it as a mild joint supplement and stop using it 3 days before a competition. I have asked the vets on the AERC committee about this. And they said what we were doing was fine. They get 2 of the little scoops twice a day and none 3 days before we leave.

    Thats what I thought and i'd read a little about withdrawel times with certain substances. I also use it for maintainance on three of my horses.

    It has never let me down, so I don't want to quit using it. I have an Arabian gelding who turned 18 in Feb and he has been getting MSM his whole life and has been doing Endurance since he was 6. He is still going strong, no joint problems, no injections. He also gets a glucosamine shot once a month. He actually just finished a 50 mile ride in 3rd place this past weekend. He would have given 1st place a run for her money, but as he has gotten older he does not do as well in the heat as the youngsters anymore.

    What I feed

    I ride a TB in endurance. They tend to be a little on the thin side. I feed free choice Bermuda grass. I give 1 flake of alfalfa/day. I then feed 5 gallons of soaked beet pulp with rice bran. I started this diet in the fall and the results have been amazing. My horse has competed faster with less fatigue. Pulses down in less than 5 minutes as well.
