Cranky Mare...Penny in water trough?

Anyone ever heard of an old wives tale about putting a penny in the water trough of a really cranky mare and it will supposedly put her in better spirits? I'm assuming something maybe to do with copper/menstrual cycle?

Never heard of it. I don't see why you couldn't try it though. Certainly isn't going to do any harm unless you can find a penny that floats! LOL

Sounds like folk lore. I wouldn't believe it. I'm assuming the logic behind it has to do with copper? A penny isn't going to add any digestible copper into your mare's water, unfortunately.

If only it were so easy! Lol.

To get any effect from the copper you would probably have to toss a few pounds of pennies in that trough... Not a bad idea, but I'd rather take my horse to the mall and have him drink out of the wishing fountains they have there ;) Its probably cheaper.
