I forwarded the pic to DH .. he's one of those silly people that think if a little bit is good, then a LOT must be better.
I have to watch him really close about feeding the horses. He was fixing Gunnie's feed and I noticed runny manure.. asked him if he had upped the supplement (that contains mag) .. he had DOUBLED it.. *thud* .. "well, it seemed to be working sooo well I thought I'd give him more."
Drives me nuts. I don't allow him to prepare the feed anymore...
