Thanks for the tip Dave. That happymouth is a plastic/rubber sort of stuff and its suppose to be apple flavored. I like the honey idea, I'll do that too.
No way on my Pretty Saro. I had a fellow stop last week and ask if she was for sale. 2nd person to just pull in the yard and try to buy her. She is a sweet, willing girl too, just can't part with her I'm afraid.

I will post the title of the book once I find out.

Dave, (good to see you ) I love the Honey tip. Dumas used to be very hard to bridle. I coat the bit with honey and he now takes it willingly. It has really helped Dumas get over his head-shy business too.

Anyone else with great tips or bit info that you feel like sharing fire away!!!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Yikes, you should have sent me a pm. I totally been forgetting about posting the title of the book.
As I said previously, an excellent read. The title is " A whole bit better" written by Dale,Ron and Rob Myler.

Excellent book on bits, their usage etc etc...should be inexpensive as it's quite small.

Good Luck!

Are those the same gentlemen from the Myler bit company?
