Out of curiosity sake, just what type of bit would cause this much damage, and why on earth would it be necessary to use it on any horse?

You just have to see your don't have to like it.

Maybe a super thin, twisted wire snaffle?

As far as the bit used, it never said but I seen a girl holding a bridle that was on Jeffcos side. I couldn't really tell but it looked like a nice bridle bit with a half breed port. If that was the bit she claimed she used I seriously doubt it would of caused that damage. I think it was some sort of snaffle from the looks of the cuts.

JEEZ!! thats terrible

I was not aware of ANY bit that caused that type of damage.

I can't believe a bit that causes damage like what appears in those pics is even LEGAL!

Some of my neighbors use those twisted wire snaffles and what looks like a bicycle chain on their horses and they are far from tender with their mouths, even so I have NEVER seen a horse damaged to that extent by those very harsh IMO bits.

What was the outcome?

The hills were bathed in moonlight, the shadows not so stark;
Silver light reflected off his brown hide as he held me in the dark
I love you, Mudpie!

From what I understood, no one got anything. Jeffco was counter sueing for slander, but she had paid restitution which cancelled her claims. The restitution she paid included the vet fees to the owner through an attorney. Judge didn't want to hear anymore. Horse owner wanted Jeffco to also pay attorney fees and punitive damages...not so much...
