Copper Bits are bad? Shocking the horse's mouth?!
So in another thread, someone mentioned that the reason horses salivate so much with copper bits, is because the copper creates an electric current in the horse's mouth, and shocks the horse, irritating its mouth! :eek:
Now I have NEVER heard this before. And I can't find ANYTHING on it online. All of my past experiences and my common sense are telling me this is not correct information, but I'd love to get some cold hard facts on it once and for all!
So, anyone hear of this? More importantly, anyone have some documented proof that this is the case? :o:confused:
