Hey you could go down to Horse Talk and find the animal communicator thread and find one to ask what your horses think of the god-awful torture devise in their mouths! I'm sure that'll clear everything up. Maybe the group discount thing will work.
ooooo fabulous idea! ;)

Bit madness, I like that.

Nope, you didn't see wrong. It's been stickied for a while.

A group discount would be lovely. More horses = a bigger discount, right? Because, after all, I do have quite a few horses and they have all been enduring the torture of bits all their lives.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Oh, but they belong to my brother, I would have to clear their therapy through him. I bet they need it more than others though, because he prefers *gasp* a curb bit with 8" shanks. It must be so horrible for them.

Well, ****. They better be first in line for therapy.

Of course, your brother will have read this thread and know about the absolute insanity he is causing them.

I must be real terrible too. I have 7 horses all of whom have been and are subected to the torture of a bit. I have one poor, poor mare who got to spend four years as a broodie. I stuck a bit in her mouth last week too! Oh, the horror!

Now there is an idea. All of mine think their bits are food. Do you think it might be some iron deficiency??

Obviously. Why else would they just pick them up out of your hand? I suppose I should sit down with Poseidon in a few months and ask her why she thinks her bit is food too.
