Question on my horse's bit...

It might be a dumb question, so I apologize ahead of time if it is.

I'm using this bit on my horse
Saddles Tack Horse Supplies - Kelly Copper Inlay Arch Mouth Bit 5"

The mouth piece is rusting. Do I need to replace it? TIA

No, sweet iron does rust. I have one just like that and the mouth is rusted on it as well. My horses like it.

Then only thing about rust on your bit is that you need to check it periodically to ensure that there are no sharp spots forming. If there is, just take a bit of steel wool and scrub and it will usually smooth out the point.

I, too, thought that rusting was normal and expected and good, from a sweet iron bit.
I like that bit.

Thank you both. Smrobs, I got that bit because you use one. ;) I love how my mare responds to it. I may buy a couple extra just in case they quit making them. Lol

Thanks again.

Actually, because I went through a stage where I couldn't find any more, I've kept my eye out and have found several bits that are shaped basically the same but with slight differences. One with a solid copper mouth and others with slightly different shaped mouths. This style seems to be gaining popularity again....thankfully .

I have the same bit for Lacey, she loves it too, all because of smrobs suggesting it. Haha
Lacey is so comfortable in it, it's basically the best. :)
