OMG, you read my mind! Thanks!
The 72 I just picked up… the body fits ok, so long as I re-hole the chest straps all the way in…. But the girth strap??
All the way up and I can still drive a truck under it. This is on a boy who is never further that 5 feet from his beloved round bale… and it shows!
I had to tie a flat knot in it to get the desired 4”/handspan clearance.
At least the rump was generous and the leg straps fit well… that or he just has a tiny little man butt.
I think he has a little crush and he wants to be just like Lacey when he grows up.
Must have been the fly mask.
BTW, how much MSM are you giving Hazel? (I picked up the exact same stuff for one of my older ladies.)
Anytime! I TOTALLY know. That's a great idea about the flat knot - can't believe I didn't think of that, going to knot-it up tomorrow! Haha These sassy in-between sizes horses. Goodness gracious.
Aww, Lacey will be so flattered when she hears about that. I think she likes him too...only this is like first grade so he has cooties and she's embarrassed to like a boy
Must have been the flymask.
As far as MSM goes, good question? The brand I buy has a little 15,000mg scoop and Hazel gets about half that per day (or maybe that scoop came with something else and I just liked it...oh dear, I am SO not organized about feeding these days - I do know for sure that it's a 15,000mg scoop).
However, it's a very rounded little scoop (like a tablespoon - those new ones that are like little rounded cups on the end) so the bottom half is probably less than exactly 7500mg... Maybe like a short teaspoon?
Also, the MSM I buy is one of those "super pure" ones (the link: AniMed Pure MSM - Horse.com
) so that also plays into the amounts...glad you asked yet?
